Hi All,

Yet another newbie after advice. Looking for a bike for my 10 year old. 14" frame seems to suit him well. I'm thinking of getting a 2012 Diamondback Overdrive, Rockrider 5.2 (based purely on enthusiasm on this forum - do you guys all have shares in Decathlon?!) or a second hand Specialized Hardrock. Best of these? Anything else I should consider?

Any advice gratefully received. Thanks.
