ISO: SSCX frames with 120 rear spacing, steel

i've just made a decision about a ride i'm going to attempt next year in single speed fashion.

i'm looking for a frame that meets this criteria:

-steel (though i might consider alu, steel is the preference though)
-120 rear spacing (plan to run it fixed most of the time, but single speed mode for some major dirt rides with tough technical downhill segments)
-canti brake studs (bike should have clearance for at least 35c tires, though i'll likely run 28's most of the time)


maybe my search skills are weak, actually they probably are, but i'm not finding too much in this category, what's out there?

Explain the importance of the 120mm spacing, because other than that the market is wiiiide open.

sadly the bikes direct offering is one of the only ones i see. i find this strange. i also would prefer just a frame, or frameset. generally speaking, complete bikes usually come with crap components, especially on the low end of the scale. the search continues....

Not sure why. 120mm spacing isn't really standard for anything except track.
