single speed frame with derailleur hanger

hey guys
So last night I took the frankenstein ssmtb conversion down to some trails I found by the river and had the most fun I've had on a bike in a long time. It was my first time riding singletrack in a long time and i think I'm hooked. By the way, if you haven't ridden SS on trails it's a blast!

What I'm wondering from you guys is if you know of any frames with SS dropouts that also have a derailleur hanger so I can move all the parts over to it, upgrade some things and maybe even put some gears on there if I want.

Thanks!

Gary Fisher Rig sort of. It has a separate derailleur hanger you can buy for it.

After I posted this thread I discovered the Kona Explosif. I'm pretty sure I'm sold. Steel with sliding dropouts and disc tabs. And it's bright green.

A bud of mine has that steed. What I LOVE about it is that you don't have to play around centering the rear wheel, and you can use a quick realease. Sweet machine.
