    I am interested in a new All Mountain bike and have some questions regarding the following bikes.

    Santa Cruz Nomad
    Intense Tracer
    Rocky Mountain Slayer 70
    Giant Reign
    Pivot Mach 5.7

    I am interested in observations and comparisons, not in brand bashing. I intend to travel around the area and test ride as many as I can but have questions regarding comparisons between the bikes. I understand some have similar suspension setups, what are the advantages of one over another(climbing ability is more important to me)? I ride all mountain conditions with climbs and descents on almost every ride. The bike must be a strong climber over a great downhiller for me. I am a bigger guy at 6' and find I am always in between a medium and large frame. Which bikes have a roomier cockpit per say?

    Any comparisons would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the time.
