Looking to buy a decent quality entry level hardtail mtb for moderate trails. Tossing up between these (they are the only bikes that fit my requirements that I can get in my local area currently). Any opinions/advice would be appreciated. Thanks 馃槉

I'm leaning towards the jamis because it's a 1x9 whereas the others are 2x8. The only thing it doesn't have is internal cabling but I don't really think that's overly important. From what I can gather, frame and fork quality seems pretty even for all 3 but I'm not sure about the componentry.

So I ended up choosing the jamis for a few reasons. It was only $60 (aussie) more than the other bikes and had the following advantages:
1. 1x9 gears (the other two are 2x8)
2. Clutch derailleur
3. Slightly better fork
4. Wider bars
5. Slightly better rims with wider chunkier tyres

Can't wait to ride it馃榾
