Thinking of buying my first FS

Ive been riding hardtails for many years and in the last 2 years I have gotten more serious into riding. I bought a new gf tassajara last year and I really like the bike. Ive done a few XC races on it and have put a lot of miles of trail riding on it so far. 90% of the trails I ride on are XC style trails but lately I have found myself seeking out the most technical sections of the trail and wanting to try some bigger drops than I think my gf can handle. Rather than use my gf ht for my all purpose riding and tearing it up I was thinking about getting a FS All Mountain style bike to use for my more aggresive style of riding and keeping my hardtail for xc trails and racing. Now the bike I have been looking at is the fezzari nebo peak http://www.fezzari.com/products/index/Nebo_Peak/9/18. After all the searching I have done this bike seems to have the best combo of components for the money. Now I know everyone will say that I need to ride it first but where I live there are no big mountain bike shops around that I can ride a decent mountain bike that I would be interested in before buying. I had to order my tassajara and take the lbs's word without ever riding it and I ended up loving it. I just want to hear some other peoples thoughts and opinions on this bike and on my ideas and also maybe some other suggestions on a good All Mountain FS bike.

Looks good to me with the exception of the wheels. You can always replace those, when they're mangled beyond repair, though.

I'm looking around the site now...I've never heard of Fezzari before. Are they similar to Bikes Direct?

The Nebo Peak looks like a great bike to me.

It also looks similar to the Specialized Stumpjumper. I know a couple people that have the 29er from last year and absolutely love it.

The Kona One20 is similar too.
