    HD and Nomad C would be good choices. Uzzi is 1.5-2lbs heavier than the other 2. If you don't need ISCG tab for your chain retention, then go for HD.

    Canfield Brothers the one is also a good choice.

    2011 Enduro EVO would be on my list for a do it all rig.

    My vote would be a Giant Reign X or a Nomad carbon. they pedal up great and destroy the way back down

    There's no such thing as a do it all bike. If there was I wouldn't have four bikes in the stable.
    CRAP... I'm in the wrong gear

    It sounds like what your asking for is what Cannondale is saying their new Jekyll is. DH, AM, or XC at the touch of a button.

    You've picked three winners. If you can get an opportunity to ride them, it will make your choosing easier.

    I'd look at the Intenese Slopestyle over the Uzzi.

    Knolly Chilcotin or Delirium would be my vote. Great efficiency, bottomless travel.

    agreed. I have an older Delerium T that i've taken on long rides and done lift service in CO. I'm building up an Enodorphin to compliment the heavier build of the DT. The suspensioin feel and confidence is just outstanding on the Knollys.

    I've seen build weights on the Deliriums of about 35 pounds and some newer builds that expect to hit below that weight. If I was going for one bike, I think the Deliriums would be amazing.
    Down is the new up.
