Hardtail decisions...

Ok so here's the deal. I need a hard tail with the following specs:

1. Small frame - no bigger than 15"
2. Cantilever bosses
3. Big tyre clearace - that cool looking design on the chainstays near the BB, not just standard and boring bent chainstays
4. Horizontal drop-outs
5. Gussets in all the right places to make it suitable for urban abuse

CAN ANYONE HELP ME?

Boring chainstay:

What about the DMR rythmn Frame? its 12.5 inch frame, but the geometry is good so it isnt too small, it built for dirt jumping and street, it has Cantilever bosses (ithink)
Tyre clearance is reasonably large... (2.7 will fit i think) And not too sure about the chainstays. Doesnt have Many gussets because its steel, but there is one underneah the head tube and down tube.
