Add Specialized Epic, Giant Anthem, Santa Cruz Superlight (more appropriate than Tallboy), Niner Jet 9, and Rocky Mountain Element.

You may have a look around MTBR.com. Though, I don't care too much what the general forums have to say, as I don't know the person doing the review. As "Gummee!" said, you gotta' ride some bikes and pick what appeals to you.

You may consider a 650b/27.5" wheel size. They seem to be gaining momentum as offering the best of 26" and 29er.
