I think a do-it-all bike these days lies in the 5" travel offerings. The 4" are suited for XC and the 3" bikes are suited more for XC racing. That's what I consider the general rule of thumb. There are obviously exceptions but this is what you will typically find.

I have a 4" travel bike (Turner Flux). If I'd have to do it all over again, I'd go for a 5" bike.
