You can save money and build your own “smart” bicycle just by strapping a smartphone onto any “dumb” bicycle out there.

I’m not sure a carbon frame for a mountain bike is a good plan. One good fall and your frame is cracked.
And the Suntour forks are not that high end.
Plus no front derailleur; so this may make it a nice bike in “mountain bike look” but definitely not a suitable MTB.
