Thanks for all the great suggestions.

Tejano: Is the tradeoff between handling and tires a question of what tires are on the bike, or is it more of frame geometry.

One: You sure have a lot of bikes! Thanks for the suggestion of the Casseroll, that's really close to what I'm looking for. The Lincolnshire poacher looks great too, just needs mounts for fenders.

I looked at both the Jamis and Redline. They downgraded the tubing on the 2011 version of the Jamis so I'm seeing if I can find a 2010 model. Also as far as I can tell they don't sell just framesets...

The Kilo WT also looks pretty good.

I actually have $700 to spend on the frame. I've got pretty much all the other components. (Old frame was damaged in a wreck.) So I could go with something a little nicer. I had my eye on the Soma Van Ness, but wanted something with a little more clearance.
