Good and solid 19" frame to build on?

I recently posted an inquiry for where I could find a low budget dualie. This has now turned into "build your own" project.

So i'm looking for advice on a good solid frame, 19", my weight is 190lbs, that I can build on.

I'll be using it for a variety of singletrack with lots of rocks and roots, and some will be epic rides (like really long days). But no jumps and stuff like that!

Thanks

EDIT: Still need to keep the frame low-budget.

Why not?

Seriously, Wheel World - - an online (and physical store) based out of Culver City, CA - - consistently has some of the best frame deals on brand-name frames that you can buy online.
