When your kid starts drafting to get the jump on you before winning the sprint to the driveway, it’s time to consider buying that first road bike. Diamondback's Podium 700 features a lightweight aluminum frame and fork that are fast off the line, easy to pedal, and provide excellent handling. They'll love Shimano's sweet 16-speed Claris shifting to help conquer the hills and keep pace on the flats. Full road bike size aluminum wheels and fast-rolling tires hold speed while powerful Shimano Claris brakes control it all. Weekend rides with the family? Their first road race? Game on!
