    How "freeride" are you going? If your going big then you'll end up with something that's way to overkill for XC.

    Similarly if you're looking at the all-mountain bracket you may not be able to send those big gap jumps without doing some serious damage!

    Horses for courses...

    For a start I'd be looking at Marin Quake XLT; Specialized SL Trail; Scott Gambler FR. But out of those three there's only the Specialized I'd want to take on an XC run, and even then it would be a short one!
