Hi all. I am looking at some hard tails that are all in the same price range more or less. Looks like there are 2 diff frame styles and slight variations in components. Is there one that stands out or shoule be avoided for any particular reason ?

I am leaning toward the Fantom Boost 29 NX simply because it has sealed formula hubs. I've has good experiences with formula on other bikes as a great budget sealed hub. I'm not too familiar with the pros and cons of the remaining components such as brakes, sifters, etc.

Any help would be appreciated. Here's what I'm looking at so far:
