I am a Massachusetts native myself!  I miss the South Shore!

Knowing now where you are riding, I can provide even more advice.  I truly don't  think you can go wrong with any of these bikes.  In terms of suspension and knowing the types of trails you will be on, I honestly don't see full suspension as a priority.

I will put a plug in for the Co-op DRT 2.1!  I like this bike a lot and really enjoyed riding it last year up in Vermont on the Kingdom Trails.  The dropper seat post was a nice additional feature on this bike!  

Hope this helps and you are hitting the trails soon!
