    Evil DOC. I had one and it was a good all around bike. It was a great one.

    BUT, I rode only street on it so I wanted something a bit quicker. For an everything ride I like it a lot though.

    Yeah, ToP's are nice. Dobermann makes some sweet frames for under $500. Or, you could get a Black Market for a little bit more than that.

    it's not MOB Riot, those are two separate models made by BlackMRKT bikes. the Riot looks sweet though, decent price, same geo and similar features to the highly acclaimed MOB.
    The Dobermann might be sweet, but I've yet to actually see one in person, and I thought they were way out of the $500 range!?

    free rider, maybe you want to specify some other things for us to base recommendations on, such as geo. you want, what parts you want to use, etc...

    take a look at an Eastern26,
    or maybe keep your eye out for one of those T-box K4H1's to hit the market...

    Their high-end frames are. The Pinscher retails for about $450. The Molosse is about $675. And the Man's Best Friend is about $900. I was very close to buying one, but decided to go with a custom built Simple instead.

    Yeah, the Terror Box K4H would be a good option as well.

    I'm out of things to say . . .

    the jekyll is really sweet. it DOES have vertical dropouts, but it has adjustable dropouts, they do the same thing as horizontal ones. but for the price, check pinkbike, someone was selling a nemisis project for like 400. dobermann fab are really nice, I rode one when I was up in B.C. the mob is a lot less versatile. mostly a park/street bike compared to other stuff out there. you also could always pick up a P. series or STP frame for cheap, and build it up.
