Fisher Rig
Redline Monocog Flight
Rockhopper, sell fork, buy good rigid fork

Rigid SS... FTW. Buy a used hardtail [mmmm... Stumpjumper], trade the suspension fork for something rigid, BAM you're done.

Monocog flight or Raleigh. These two have the advantage that can be converted from SS to gears if you are not happy with a single speed.
