The Jamis Hot Rod's frame design offers plenty of stand-over clearance for the youngest of new cyclists. It features real ball-bearing (not plastic bushing) wheels with 16 spokes that will roll smoothly and hold up to lots of use. The crank and headset on the Hot Rod also offer full ball-bearing construction, so the 'lil speedster can pedal and turn comfortably and securely. Our full-length and full chainring-wrap chainguard keep clothes and legs cleanly and safely out of the way of the chain, while a set of fenders not only keep puddle spray off the bike AND the rider, they also help to keep feet and hands away from spinning wheels. Those wide 2.125" tires offer a large contact patch for stability and control. And, they're pneumatic, not rock-solid, so they can be filled with just the right amount of air to provide a comfortable ride full of fun. There's a handlebar safety pad and a safety bell which little tykes love to ring to let others know they're coming through!
