13 year old son only plays video games, want to get him a new bike.
My son only plays video games - he doesn't even watch TV or movies! The only outdoor activity he has ever done on his own volition was ride his bicycle. Unfortunately, it was destroyed by a hurricane wind last year. It was a Diamondback Octane, and he seemed to really think it was cool, so I thought I'd get him a Diamondback Overdrive. He is obviously not an enthusiast, but we only have gravel roads and rough here. If I could get a 2013 Overdrive Sport for the same price as a 2014 Overdrive, would that be the way to go? most of the difference seems to be in the brakes, hydraulic vs. regular, the new Overdrive has a number of upgrades to the frame and other components that seem to make it a near match other than the brakes. The sport also allows you to "lock out" the fork.
