While hunting for a good deal and having Fischer recommended in response to an earlier question, I am a little torn if I should spend the extra dough.
Both a 29in wheel, 21in frame models that would fit me
Montis comes with Brose Drive S 500 Wh, SRAM SX Eagle x12, BR-MT400 Brakes, RockShox RECON TK QLC suspension link
EM 1865 comes with Bafang Max Drive 557 Wh, BR-M 447 brakes, Deore XT x9 link

Prices are after available discounts.

Deore XT x9 seems awkward, since Deore XT x9 isn't really sold any more. On the other hand, it's an €600 difference ...

Can the quality of the frame and wheels be determined from pictures?

Thanks
Martin

This.

Excellent torquey motor from renowned manufacturer, excellent drive-train, very good suspension fork, and the bike looks just sexy.
