    All Mountain/DH 650b Hardtail

    I am looking for special kinda of whip... Low BB height, medium to shorty chain stays, slack head tube, medium to long wheel base.
    Compatible with 150mm to 160mm adjustable fork (i.e. Talas).
    ... and carbon...

    I have been considering pulling the trigger on the On*One 456 and recently begun to think that a 650b compatible rig would be superior, especially if said rig was designed around 650b's...

    I live in Colorado and am looking for a bike that can climb for days, but is quick and nimble on the tight and twitchy descents off the high mountains...

    thoughts, experiences?

    Other then the On*One 456, a carbon bike maybe hard to find.
    the Bird Zero looks especially tasty. Unfortunately, it will be hard to get here in the States.
    I will probably be looking towards the new Surly Instigator
    link to the thread already started for AM hardtails -----> AM (140mm +) hardtail 650b. Does it exist?
