    Both bikes have similar levels of components with the advantage to Trek hence the $60 price bump. In general, I like the attention that Trek has paid to smaller details such as stem rise, 8spd rear, crank choice, gearing, etc. My money buys the Trek. If he's going to be hitting the trail, he'll have an easier time climbing with the 11-32T rear cog set that the Trek has. Good luck.
