So in one's search for the ultimate frame for everything that I like to ride. Over the last few years I've been working on this, and now feel that I've got what i want dialed to the tee.

The current frame geo is:
580mm top tube
435mm chain stay
530mm actual top tube
13.7" bb height 347.98mm
730mm stand over height
400mm seat tube height
1125mm wheelbase
HA is about 66

Now this is great for downhill, and general thrash biking however it's screwed by a bad linkage, crap welding and a few other minor issues. And I can't put the seat up, the seat tower is too bloody small.

My question goes to anyone out there if they know of bikes with the following:
595mm top tube
435mm stays
13.4" BB 340mm
750mm stand over max
410 mm seat tube height
1140mm wheelbase
65-67 HA
travel 140-180mm adjustable
fork 140- 180mm
1.5" head tube
target weight frame 3-4.5kg
Able to put seat up for XC/ down for DH.
no DW link or vpp or maestro, i likely lively bikes, these feel dead to me.

The Youth industries Noton gets close but has a stupidly high BB and no adjustablity.

The new Alutech enduro also looks very promising, others have been the MDE boulder S or the Alutech poodle.

Im not fussed on the rear axle spacing or the BB sizing, but want to run Hammerschmidt on it.

I'm after something more european than anything else, I'm fond of the industrial look aswell.

Would also love to find a smaller companys cromo edition, or raw alloy that isn't overly hydroformed.
