Hardtail for XC riding at a steady pace!

Hi Guys,

My father-in-law is turning 65 later at the end of the year and has requested the family get him a new hard tail as his Spec Hardrock is getting tired!

Despite his age he's very fit and enjoys getting dragged around the local country roads, bridleways and byways etc. He's never going to hit serious trails, maybe blue trails at Swinley etc, and more likely to try the South Downs Way ride.

I'm thinking a hardtail with 100mm upfront around the £600 mark with the intention of one with a high RRP that will likely be reduced over the coming few months to around £600. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
