Coach Kevin’s Specialized P.Race bike

When I first saw the Specialized P.Pump concept bike, which tipped the scales at a mere 17.9lbs, I was fascinated. I knew I wanted to build something similar when I considered entering the 2018 BMX Cruiser Races.

This build is a conservative financial effort, utilizing many parts I already had and buying only what I thought held the best value, and could withstand the abuse of Racing. I knew it would come out light and fast – but it’s even lighter and faster than I imagined. 

I give you, potentially the lightest ever Specialized build, my custom Specialized P.Race bike.
