Pivot's got a few demo Mach 4 Carbons on sale right now on their website. Damn nice bike...got to test ride. Ended up with the Pivot Trail 429 as Mach 4 Carbon wasn't available at that time for my size and color preference. I have it set up 27.5...awesome bike!

New Turner Flux is a great bike. Didn't buy it because I couldn't wrap my head around their terrible cable routing system...aesthetics issue for me.

Got a friend who has a Felt Decree, he likes it. Stumpy ST is pretty nice, too. Both of these have more travel, however.

I would recommend the Turner Flux. The DW link, IMO, is the best suspension platform out there. I ride a Turner RFX, 30 lbs, F170mm, R160mm travel. While not an XC bike in any stretch, this bike climbs almost as good as most XC bikes I've ridden or owned.
The cable routing which was mentioned is just Turners way of having access to your cables and in no way is a terrible design.
