    default tires on hotrock 24"

    Just posting to get this info locked down for others who might get a hotrock in the future. Took me a bit of searching to get the weight

    The current tires on my daughters hotrock are specialized nimbus wire bead 24" tires.

    So moving to small block 8's or 425g tires will save about 650g rotational weight which is a pretty big deal for a 6 year old

    Casing: 30 TPI
    Bead: wire
    Compound: 70a
    Flat Protection: Flak Jacket
    20" x 1.5; psi 50-80; approx weight 600g
    24" x 1.5; psi 50-80; approx weight 750g
    26" x 1.5; psi 35-80; approx weight 840g
    700 x 28; psi 115-125; approximate weight 640g
    700 x 32; psi 75-100; approximate weight 740g
    700 x 35; psi 75-100; approximate weight 810g
    700 x 38; psi 75-100; approximate weight 855g

    The first thing I did on both my kids Hotrock 24's was to swap the tyres. Made a huge difference (I got a great deal on Rocket Ron 24's).
