    Custom Specialized Hotrock 16

    Since discovering the mods for hotrocks on this site, I have been obsessed.

    Heres the hotrock 16 I'm building for my cub, hes 5 and loves yellow !

    Original
    2010 Girls Hotrock 16"




    Mods (so far)
    Lizard Skins Mini Machine Grips
    Montana Gold F1000 Flash Yellow Paint Job
    Proper Bikes 28T BMX Chainring
    CRUPI Mini Padded Racing BMX Seat and Seat Post
    Hope 28.4 Seat Post Clamp
    Bad Ass Bell


    I've got some decals ordered up, and am toying with the idea of removing the coaster brake and adding lever brake on back




    Yellow isn't going to be everyones colour, but he pure loves it, and that's what this project is all about.

    That is cool! Total makeover! I'd definately add a rear BMX U-Brake if you can find one cheap. Even if you leave the coaster and just tell him not to use it. I did this on my daughters little Walmart bike, and it worked fine.

    Nice - that cracks me up. Looks good :-) Gives new meaning to a "virtual" pivot. I would consider swapping out the bar to a flat or at least a low rise bar to save weight and get the kid into a better riding position. Neither of my kids have complained...
