That is the tie breaker-- which feels best. Only point I would make is that all 3 use a cheap suspension fork that will not last long. See if an upgrade is possible on the fork before you buy- as I have a feeling that you will be replacing it fairly shortly.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
