    SS 29ers with horizontal drop outs

    I did a search on this and nothing really came back so sorry if this has already been done. I am looking into getting a 29er SS but i know i wouldn't like all the creaking so i have learned to avoid that i should get a bike with horizontal drop outs. My plan was to get a 2011 Gary Fisher Rig and then upgrade the wheels. but the person/connection on this seems to be falling through a bit, so i am starting to look at other options. Can you guys please help me with a few bikes that would fit my needs i am looking at a total budget of $1500 - $2000. I feel i can get a pretty solid fun/racish SS bike for this price. If i cant thats cool as i know I'm not really going PRO anytime soon. haha. Anyways any help or pointers of what else to look for is appreciated. Thanks

    Edit: Forgot the bike has to have attachment for disc brakes. I will be running some sort of hydrological brakes if any of you have recommendations on that as well.

    Edit # 2 - Sorry i meant sliding i don't not want horizontal, Trying to avoid an adapter part and want to wheel to go directly to the frame.

    The 2011 Rig has sliding dropouts, not horizontal dropouts. While there are frames with out there with either of those, it'll help us recommend them to you if you clarify...do you want horizontal dropouts like those found on the Karate Monkey, or sliding dropouts like the ones on the 2011 Rig.

    And the term is hydraulic brakes, not hydrological.

    Surly Karate Monkey: steel, not light!

    Soma Juice: Also steel, maybe a little lighter, but not a race bike!

    On One Inbred: Steel, not light either!

    On One Scandal: Aluminum, pretty light

    That's all I can think of right now.

    Spell check does the weirdest things.

    Vassago Jabberhonky fits the bill I believe. Contrary to popular believe, steel bikes can, in fact, be raced upon.

    GT Peace
    Haro Mary
    Ellsworth (way pricey!) but can be run geared or SS w/ horizontals!

    Personally, I will probably be selling my GT Peace in the next few months and picking up an Ebay special (carbon frame) and then running a FC EBB. Nothing wrong with steel and there are quite a few really nice set ups out there. The Vassago is a very nice frame and has gotten alot of good reviews. Very much worth looking into if it is in your price range.
