Give him a gift certificate so he can get the Cannondale. If he’s near my age he wants the full suspension.

He is 53 and he told me he wants a Hardtail. I’ve talked with Specialized and the Trek dealers in my area and they basically pointed me towards a Specialized Rockhopper and a Treck XCalibur 7. What Giant and Cannondale bike would be comparable to those two above?
