Carbon Cross Frame Recommendations

I am trying to find some frames for a friend who is going to be building up a new race bike. trouble is finding a good quality, lightweight carbon frame....in a 47 or 48.
what would you guys and gals look for? the ridley x-night only comes in a 50 at smallest...any ideas?
