    Need your recommendations... winter Hotrock 24 upgrades

    My 9 year old son has been rolling on this Specialized Hotrock 24 for the past 2 seasons and he's finally starting to fit the bike. We had a made a few upgrades but I'm looking to expand his range, primarily low end, and lighten where reasonable. I could use your recommendations on setting up a 1x9/10 drivetrain and where to shave a couple lbs along the way. Here are the current specs on the bike:

    - FRST RST Air fork
    - Stock wheelset setup vbrake
    - Trailcraft double crankset running single 32T
    - 14-28 cassette
    - aluminum seatpost
    - stock alloy bar and stem
    - Rocket Ron tires

    My parts bin isn't going to get me where I need to go but I'm assuming I'm looking at sourcing a rear wheel, cassette, rear derailleur, shifter, and maybe a china factory direct carbon cockpit.

    I'll admit that the drivetrain build and finding a smooth operating combination for this bike size is not a strength.

    Really appreciate any recommendations you all might have to offer.
