    Alternatives to Kona Kula Deluxe Frame?

    Im looking to buy a hardtail frame, and the Kona Kula Deluxe caught my eye. I noticed it has verticle dropouts with horizontal adjustment built into it. Does anyone know of other frames that have this feature? I like to change my drivetrain a lot and this looks like a good feature for someone like me to have.

    Could get a Kona Unit...kona sells a derailleur hanger for it and you'd have the same setup in a 29er steel frame, or big unit and it would be scandium. Just saw a big unit frame (size small) go on ebay for less than 200, not bad... Kula deluxe is a 26" scandium frame?

    This particular Kula was a 29" scandium. Im not sure what options it comes with, but I know they have some versions that have the welded on verticle dropouts. I like them to be replaceable like the one I posted has, since I fiddle with it so much.

    OnOne Inbred swap out frame.
    The Inbred slot dropout is simpler and cheaper.

    Kona Unit Single-Speed 29'er Frame

    Just has a pic of the sliders...so you get the derailleur hanger as an accessory, think it was $20? Can't remember. Then you can go back and forth, single speed, geared, whatever...
