Trek Calypso 7spd vs Giant Simple 7 vs Giant Suede?

Are there any riders out there who own these bikes or have a significant other/friend who rides one? Am wanting to hear about personal experiences, reviews, thoughts on these models. Thanks in advance for your attention & time.

Don't have to worry about the choice anymore: came down to fit, which the Suede did. All three bikes were fun to ride and nice looking but the pedals forward won out in the end. Also the Suede has suspension, which I thought I wouldn't need - wrong! Went trail riding today for about 70 min. on the Suede. The suspension smoothed out the ruts and the tires were fine in sand, dirt, rock & pavement. Felt like a kid again which is what riding is all about for me.
