It’s true that the frame is just as good as the adult models. It’s made from the same aluminium alloy as the Hardrock, using tubing that’s butted at both ends. It also has Specialized’s hockey-stick shaped down tube for front end strengthening, rather than using more metal for reinforcement, which keeps things light.
What is the stand over height of my bike?
