    Frame Advice Please

    This is my first post on MTBR, so I figured I would make it worthwhile.

    I am looking to replace my Santa Cruz Superlight because I think it's about at the end of it's road.

    I would like to find a steel frame or possibly aluminum (but it's gotta be solid) hardtail frame with sliding rear dropouts with a derailleur hanger.

    I would also like something that will work well with my Fox F100 because I'm really not looking to upgrade forks.

    So basically:
    -hardtail
    -steel or solid aluminum
    -sliding rear dropouts with derailleur hanger
    -26"
    -geometry suitable for a 100mm fork
    -sizing available for 6'4" rider

    I have no idea of any frames that would fit this so any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks MTBR for all the advice and knowledge you have helped me to acquire so far.

    Exactly what you are looking for except maybe for size.

    Size 21" with 24.5" top tube, big enough?

    Size 20" with 24" top tube

    Thanks for the reply. I checked them out, I think the Wanga is looking the best for me, I don't really like the Bokor's design.

    Still looking for other options though so if anyone has any ideas, let me know!

    no sliding rear dropout but this bike has proven itself for well over 10 years now. Just a thought. Jim

    Oh, & I really liked your comment about the SL 'reaching the end of the road' - good one!

    Thanks scottzg, I completely forgot about On-One.

    Would the 20" Scandal 26er be comparable in size to an XL Superlight?

    I'm pretty good with bikes and whatnot but I am nothing when it comes to sizing and geometry.
