I am looking for some good bets for a Full Suspension XC Race Bike ($2k or so budget).

So far the only bike on the list is the Giant Anthem X3 and I am thinking about the Scott Spark.

I like to stand and pedal so I think a lock out fork and efficient rear end maybe important.

I am on the heavier (210 lbs).

What bikes should I be looking at?

Thanks

change out tires to your favorite 2.1
change cassette to 11-32t if you need more help up hills
still sub 25 lbs and sub $2 g

Thanks, the Anthem X3 (in the UK it's the X4) just got a great write up in What Mountain Bike, so I will be checking those out (looking at the UK website the UK Spec X3 is exactly what I want), but I need to better understand the Giant Brand components and the float R shock.
