I'm looking to buy a new bike. I'm a beginner, but intend to dive head first into mountain biking (hopefully not literally). I'm not a big guy - just 5'9 145 pounds. I'm partial to hard tails, but would be willing to look at a full suspension. I will use the bike primarily for light-medium trails and for general fitness. In time, I would like the bike to be able to grow with me as I advance. My price range is 800-1200 give or take. I'm looking at the following bikes and would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

Jamis Exile (local dealer carries Jamis)

Jamis Dakota AL

Devinci Phantom (local dealer carries Devinci)

Marin Indian Fire Trail

Bianchi KingBee (dealer about an hour away carries Bianchi)
