1. Intense UZZI
2. Diamondback Scapegoat (don't comment if you haven't ridden one)
3. (Tied). Transition Covert
3. (Tied). Transition Bottlerocket
5. Diamondback Mission
6. Cannondale Prophet
7. Trek Remedy
8. Norco Six
9. Cannondale Moto
10. Specialized Pitch

Only judging based on bikes I've ridden . I'm not saying that these are the absolute best (other than the first 2) but there is a difference between saying a bike is good and actually taken it out and tested it. To have riden a bike means a lot more IMO.

i've always found them awkward. all the weight is up high, and there's no top tube clearance. Not to mention the hideous amounts of brake squat. but thats just all preference i guess.
