    What full suspension MTB to go with my Flash?

    I have a Flash Alloy 1 that I love but I am thinking about adding another bike. I have read a ton, done lots of searches and now I have no idea what I need! Ideally I would like:

    29er (or 27.5 but they dont seem to be big yet)
    light weight. I saw some online that were mid to low 20s but I would like to keep it around $3-6k.
    smooth comfy riding position for all day comfort endurance rides.
    not extreme performance but responsive for fast single track.
    fast and responsive. I am leery about the rear being too sloppy when I need to hammer the pedals.
    I am open to carbon or alloy but I dont know if it will affect the ride of this type of bike too much.

    from what I can tell a non evo stumpjumper fsr might be a good match. what about a cannondale trigger or scalpel? anything else in these lines or others I should try out?

    I'm assuming the Flash you have is a Cannondale......

    I'd lean toward another Cannondale if you like the way the geometry works. If you have various brands then it can often take a bit of time to adjust to the way each one handles.

    I use Cannondale as well and I don't feel the need to change it, it fits perfectly..
