I’d choose something with lockable front suspension. Locking the suspension helps going up hill as you can lose power with suspension movement. On the flat and downhill sections, release the suspension lock so your arms don’t fall off by the time you get to the pub.
Rear suspension is not necessary for the riding you’ll be doing and makes the bike heavier and you lose more power imho.
Enjoy NZ. Great place and people, even if their accents are funny. (Get them to say “six” or “fish and chips” as often as you can!)
