    any real DH bike will work out just fine for you so to speak. Depends on your style... IMO there is no "best" bike. It's been discussed hundreds of times... A IH Sunday may be good for one person and crap for another. ALL of the bikes listed earlier by other people are GREAT bikes. Try them all out first!

    I for example prefer my Demo 8 over a Sunday for some reason. But if I were to pick up any frame right now that price was no matter- it would be either the Yeti 303 or Intense M6.
    I like rice.

    The all time best DH race frame is probably the Sunday.

    i could be wrong but im thinking the M1 prolly has more podiums than the Sunday, if in fact that is how you are basing your reasoning as to what makes a frame the best
