    Single speed frame for long travel fork

    I was thinking about building up a ss with a 5 or 6" fork and was looking for input on a frame to use. Are there any ss specific frames that have suspension corrected geometry for a fork with this much travel? I have a NS suburban that I am building as a ss but it is more for urban/dj and I'm not sure how it would handle on the trails.

    I spent a lot of time looking at the Santa Cruz Chameleon and the Mountain Cycle Rumble. Seems the Rumble is not made anymore but every once in awhile one shows up on ebay...

    p.s. Of course now I'm a 29er convert and have to start my search all over...

    Another vote for the Cotic Simple. I run mine with 100mm forks, but my Soda (identical geometry) has 130mm ones. Slightly slacker, but Ohmygod quick DH.

    Have you had the frame re finished? I have been looking at buying one of these but could not see the blue option.

    It's not a stock colour.

    That frame started off life as a geared Soul, then got the dropouts butchered and used as the Simple test mule. As part of the deal for using my frame, Cy chucked me in a re-spray.
