HELP ME FIND A HARDTAIL TO BUILD MY DREAM HARDTAIL BUILD.

Some of the requirements are pretty out of the box and hard to find together - which is why I need your input.

WANTS:
-ht angle 69 degrees or slacker
-st angle 72.5 degrees or steeper
-chainstay 440 mm or greater
-steel frame preferred
-120-130mm fork to fit
-preferably want to use a 27.5+ rear with a 29er front
-water bottle hangers?
-probably 1x11 drivetrain

Post some frames to help me out!

Cotic Solaris max meets all those requirements. Chromag surface, niner sir, and surly karate monkey meet your requirements other than their chainstays are shorter than you want. If you have the money you could always go custom, maybe get a Triton and a matching unicycle frame too.

Why do you want to run 27.5+ in rear and 29 in front? Wider tire should be front as it is where the bulk of your grip comes from. Plus with that set up you'd be putting the heavy wheel in the rear and making it feel more sluggish under acceleration.
