2017 Specialized Boy's Hotrock 24 Street (21-Speed)
Riding around the neighborhood and to school is easier and more fun on Specialized's Boy's Hotrock 24 Street. Its aluminum frame and fork are light and efficient. They're paired with fast-rolling semi-slick Specialized tires on 24-inch wheels so your young rider will be able to go faster with less effort. Plus, he'll love the twist shifters and easy-pedaling 21-speed drivetrain that's perfect for scaling the neighborhood's toughest inclines and tagging along with you!
I bought the "road" version of this bike for my boy, knowing most kids preferred the shocked version. The weight savings and easy rolling tires on this bike vs the offroad road version is amazing. This bike just gets up and flies do to less rolling resistance. If most riding is to be on asphalt forget the shocks and knobby tires and consider this great alternative that is a blast to ride.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
