Decide on what camber profile and shape you think would suit you best. The Bateleon is true twin but hybrid camber profile via their tbt technology. Check it out. Some love it, some don't. Personally, I'd nix the Manic and instead look at the Ride Machete. A true twin shape and low rize rocker profile, which would be good for an intermediate and you can pick up a 2011/12 161 wide for around 260 bucks online. It will be perfect for all mountain and fit your future objectives of learning to play around a bit more.
