    What 29er steel non ebb slider style frames are out there?

    I'm currently trying to find a frame for my 29er ss build. My requirements are as follows:

    Steel
    Non EBB
    I want sliding dropouts (paragon sliders, etc.) so I don't have to mess with my rear disc brake so much.
    Clearance for big tires (I might run a Weirwolf LT 2.55)

    So far these fit the bill:

    Voodoo Dambala (tire clearance is supposed to be ok now?)
    Kona Unit
    Redline Monocog Flight

    Any more production frames out there? I'm looking to spend about $750 or less.

    Thanks,

    John.

    Are you sure 2.55's fit on the Flight? I put 2.3's on there and they fit fine, but 2.55's would be really close.

    I chose the Flight for the fit, price and lifetime warranty.

    can you buy the monocog as a frame set?

    I am confused ... it seems like an EBB, with fixed rear axle position, would make for an easier rear brake set-up.

    Not usually. I did find a bike shop with some Flight frames, though. Might want to check with your local dealer. Otherwise, you can buy the whole bike for ~$700 and sell off what you don't want.

    IIRC, the Spot frames are much more than the OP's budget. Awesome frames, though.

    With regard to the Flight's tire capacity, I was thinking that I had stumbled upon something online that mentioned 2.5 for a tire size. It seems pretty easy to find monocog frames used though.

    I've thought long and hard about going with an ebb; it sure would make my search for a frame go easier, but in the end I'd rather keep it simple. My current ss has horizontal dropouts, which can be a pain, so I'm hoping a frame with sliders will be a good compromise.

    Spot would be nice, but its pretty much out of my price range.
