    Two of those bikes have 29" wheels and one is a 26".
    How tall are you? I am five six and 29" wheel bikes are too big for me.
    These are all budget bikes. What kind of riding are you hoping to do on it?

    I am thinking maybe you could try out a 29" and a 26" to see which feels better for you.

    Also you could have a look at 650b, or 27 1/2" wheel size.

    I would not recommend that you buy any bike mail order, before you try it out.

    At $600- $1,000 where the bikes you suggested sit, you are on the lower limit of "proper" mountain bikes, so you do need to choose with some care.

    If you're right, I tried the 26er and I have spoken highly of the 29er too will consider 27 1/2, saw the comparison of the components of the 3 bikes, what level do you think is better?

    I usually tell anyone looking into getting a mountain bike in the sub-2000$ price range to look into a used bike. You'll get alot more bike for your money.
