I personally didn't like it, but the Rumblefish meets your criteria add well. Pedal power in Exeter has tests bikes.
All I've learned from this is I'm going to be very afraid to ride with you when you get your new rig!

Niner frames run large - I am 6' 0" with a 34 inseam and I ride a Medium RIP9, its the only Medium bike I've ever owned (check out the geometry - http://www.ninerbikes.com/rip9 - note that Al's bike has a one degree steeper head angle than what is in those charts). I swapped bikes with a friend on a medium Nomad and it was like a minibike compared to my bike.
I know it sounds like I'm trying to sell the RIP9, I'm not, but I do like mine!

I have the 2012 Satori and love it. If I had a switch to set the suspension from the handlebars I would use the pro pedal more which would make climbing much better, but it descends over everything. It comes with a 2.4 front and 2.25 rear. I haven't changed anything yet, but I am guessing go tubeless and changing the front tire to 2.25 would mike it lighter and even better for climbing. I am pretty sure Brian from JRA owns a Satori too! I can't say enough good things about JRA. It's the only shop I go to! I know they have the demo since I took it out an actually met someone at Harold Parker last weekend that had it while his was in for service. Good luck with whatever you choose cause really, what's better than getting a new toy!
