    Bikes w/ long top tubes

    What mountain bike models normally tend to have longer than average top tubes? Any particular companies that tend to make them that way across their whole line?

    I'm asking because I'm on the lookout for a used steel bike/frame and I'd like something a litter longer than what seems to be normal.

    On-One is steel and rather longish. Priced new, they are very reasonable. I think Kona's are about average otherwise you could get an Explosif. Gary Fisher has a new steel frame coming out that should have a very long top tube.
