Hi Jacko and welcome to the forums...
The one Richard D states is for Brant Richard's, quite a famous (well in the UK) mountainbike journalist turned frame designer. His story was in a recent issue of Mountain Bike World magazine.
His On One bikes look pretty cool and got some rave reviews. As above DMR, Planet X etc are all worth a butchers too, but if you can, try having a go on a bike before you make your final decision.
Also worth a look is the Orange Ms Isle, or outside the UK industry, the Trek Brusier got rave reviews albiet it comes with a rigid fork stock.
Good luck and let us know how you get on...
