Trek Fuel EX5 or Cannondale Lexi 5 or Santa Cruz Julianna?

Does anyone have any input on these bikes? I am looking for an entry level FS with a fairly upright position because of nagging arthritis in my hip has forced me off a road bike and back onto a more upright position of a mnt bike. I currently have a trek 8000 ht that feels great but I am looking for a FS with a similar fit. I will be riding Willowdale mostly here in the northeast new england with some races. No drops really at all I am an athletic but not crazy 43 5"4" female. Thanks for any help!

I would probably look at the Santa Cruz Juliana or the Cannondale Lexi 5.
