    With the 150mm hub standard taking over the dh market you only have a few frames to choose from. Intense 951 can be set up with 135 drop outs but with the 83bb standard you may have chain line issues. The demo is a great choice but I think the frame needs a 10 thru axle rear hub. I am going with the 951 myself but it is not cheap.

    The 2010 Giant Glory looks like a steal at only $1600.00 and I think it takes a 135 hub. I also have a Kumicho, it's a 2008 with the 150mm hub and was thinking about a new frame but mines still solid so I might wait another year before replacing it. By the way, where did your frame break? Also, the new Transition DH bike - TR450 looks real nice and they usually have decent frame prices. You would have to go with a 150mm hub with the Transition. Don't rule out the Transition Blindside. It takes a 135mm hub and just might be better for you than the TR450 depending on what type of riding you do. If I were to replace my frame here is my short list in no particular order:

    Chumba F5
    Intense 951
    Transition TR450
    Giant Glory
    Rocky Mountain Flatline (2010) You might be able to get a deal on a 2009 frame though.

    Transition blindside. Single pivot 8 inch bike with 135 rear spacing that you can change dropouts to 10 or 12 and has a floating brake mount and 1.5" headtube. I think this meets all your specs

    The frame broke on the right side by rear tire and pedal just between the Cassette and the
    Crank below the rear shock

    an orange 222ibs or 223ibs has around 8inch rear travel, 135mm rear spacing, you can change the drop outs as far as i can remember, has a floating brake, but only down side it does not have a 1.5" headtube, and being an orange its pretty dam strong.
