    Same old same old, help with a DS frame

    I am ready to buy a DS frame to put these parts on:
    Azonic Outlaws
    Maxxis ADvantage 2.4's
    Avid BB7's 8 inch
    Avid FR7 levers
    Avid flack jacket cables
    Sram X7 rapid fire shifters
    Sram X7 rear and X gen front der.
    Sram 970 cassette and 971 chain
    Manitou Travis 150mm single fork

    Still need to buy:
    Truvativ Holzfeller dual ring crankset
    Holzfeller bar and stem
    FSA headset
    SDG I beam and Bel air seat
    Crank Bros Mallet C's
    small parts like seat post QR, tubes, etc

    So I weigh close to 300 pounds and Turner and Fox told me I was out of luck on the RFX. They say i am too heavy for the leverage ratio on the Fox shock. Turner recomended a 5 pack, 5 spot rear, RFX front. I was prepared to spend about $1700 on the RFX frame but I just cant go $2000 on the 5 pack. Here on the east coast I ride rocky and rooty singletrack and would like to have some room to grow, skill wise not weight wise.

    So here is the question. Should I get a Heckler with a Fox 5.0 Coil shock or maybe a Kona Coiler with the same Fox? Any other sugestions?

    Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
    John
