Looking to upgrade

I have a 2007 Rockhopper Disc and I want to go to something a little nicer I was thinking of going 29er or full suspension. I would like to keep it under 2K, do you guys have any suggestions for me?

So far my top choice is the MONOCOG FLIGHT 29er

Don't listen to me. I might be overworked and under-rested.

It is if you want a rigid singlespeed 29er. If you want a geared full suspension 26" bike, it is a very bad choice.

I am very interested in trying out a SS, but if I go with the Flight I would most likely put a front shock on it.
