depends on the year of the V10, the glory is a very solid dh bike but the gran mal has a high center of gravity and has inactive suspension at times

i would go for the V10

ok you gave a reason to rule out the gran mal. but you never gave a reason why not to choose the glory.

Intense m6 would be a a amazing race bike. even tho you didn't it as one of the option. still you should look into it

The V-10 and the M-6 have the same suspension design so I don't see how they could be much better except for stock specs but maybe I'm wrong. I've only ridden the V-10

The best race bike for the money would be the 08 Sunday Team, pedals great, plush, pretty light, and priced below most on your list. if you were to go with the transition buy the blindside not the gran mal, they lowered the bb,standover and some other stuff to make it handle better. the V 10 is cool too. personally I would go with the Sunday, or the blindside.
