I agonized with similar choices a year ago. I went with whatever I got the best deal on (Jenson were blowing out frames). Plus I read some reviews and got the feedback I needed to make a choice I was happy with.
The dual crown fork thing - that alone might steer you to a Nomad - it's probably the burliest of the ones you listed.

The Enduro Evo is probably the burliest bike, the Yeti or SC will probably pedal the best. I doubt any bike listed will warranty a dual crown if you're worried about that. If you do want a dual crown, Uzzi would be my call. I have a TR Blindside, love it and customer service is top notch.
i ride a ns soda fr; definitely worth a look for what you ride. you can put a DC on it with the rear travel set to 180 or ride with 160 fork and 150m rear travel. burly but can be built up plenty pedalable too
thanks for all the replies, been looking at the uzzi but cs ive heard is bad, ns soda looks cool! had a look at canfield one and it looks like its the one heard there are some issues with the bb being too low? otherwise im set on this 2700frame . how much do u think would i be looking at to complete this bike any ideas and input on the bb on the one cheers
I love my Uzzi. What bad have you heard? Mine is a 2011. The 2012 and up models are even better.
RAM speed: UP, UP, and away....!
That is a solid list. Whatever fits the budget and feels good on a test ride...
All I will add is that the '13 enduro evo may be my next dream bike (that I probably won't be able to afford until I am buying a used one in 2016. )
You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.
You have listed the good crops of AM bike. And with your price point you could pick from wide range of very good bikes.
From 160mm arrays bike, I have owned original Nomad, Ibis Mojo HD, Pivot Mach 5.7 (not quite 160mm), my riding buddies own Slash 9, Spesh Enduro and old SX Trail, Intence Tracer 2, which I tried few times. I ended up with Knolly Chilcotin and I know it will be long before I would be tempted to change the bike.
It's a tractor climbing up and plush heaven going down. Do a favor for yourself, search on "Chilcotin" and you'll find great comment form almost everyone tried it. I know my 2 of my buddies are steering off to get the Knolly.
Don't decide to get any bike before you try a Knolly...

The Mojo HD special blend ( available from Jensen) will fit your budget.
Great all day bike, ride anywhere type of bike.
