Big Guy looking for a bike need help

Well i am quite a large guy (6'6" about 280 pnds) and i am looking for a sturdy mountain bike to ride on the trails. i am planning on running it a singlespeed and having it solely for trails. i used to ride bmx before highschool and dirt jumped quite frequently. i entered highschool and began to grow and was playing football so i quit riding. however i was going to get a mountain bike that i can still take back on trails and have running single speed i was wondering some good frame recomendations from you guys. (i only have a couple hundred for a frame but i will be shopping on ebay)...all coments and advice welcome thanks
