Check out the Felt Decree.

It may seem like an odd and potentially unpopular recommendation. I got a demo Decree from our Felt rep to ride for a while. I ended up buying one of the Decree LE project bikes because of how much fun it was. I still ride it at least every other ride I go on.
I grew up riding bmx. I like riding that way with my big bikes too. Hopping roots sections, manualing every roller, popping off stuff... The Decree works. The suspension is supple and supportive. It doesn't wallow when you bunnyhop really hard.
The headangle is quite reasonable. It's between a slopestyle bike and an enduro. Too steep and you get twitchy, too slack and the big feels more 'luggy'. I run mine in the steeper mode just to bring the seat tube angle up a little and found I like the steeper headangle. I tired a 1.5 degree angle set on the bike and it kind of killed the feel of a fun poppy trail toy.

It's a riot on the downhills. It holds killer traction and feels more like 160 travel in terms of what it eats up. Check out some of the reviews on it. it's worth a look,


For reference as to what my experience was to form my opinion about the Decree comes from these are the other bikes I currently own a GG Smash, Blkmrkt Roam, Blkmrkt Killswitch, Spank Tweet, a custom made superslack steel hard tail.
