The Drop is a heavy full suspension down hill bike, it weighs around 40lbs. My 2015 Giant aluminum FS weighs around 32lbs. The Storm is a light weight trail bike, being an HT, probably less than 30bs. They are not the same type of bikes at all. And seeing as full suspension geometry has changed drastically in those years, so I would say the new Storm, at least until you see how serious he is going to be. If he becomes serious and later needs a downhill bike, the 2003 Drop would have only been fair anyway.
