Well, i personally like Paduano.

This small italian manufacturer works on titanium . I specially like the Caino and the Caligola frames.

See them here - http://www.paduanoracing.com/home.html

Cheers

A Paduano was for sale overhere not long ago. Think it was a tough sale, as almost nobody knows them

Nice rides

How about building your own steel frame? Dave Yates does a course where you can build your own steel hardtail. Not cheap but it'll be a one off!!

Thirded.

These days unless you are racing short track XC at Elite level I wouldn't even bother buying a new hardtail.

Image The problem of paduano is that seat post tube, I don´t know if you can oder a standar tube. It looks like corratec (or it was carraro?)

You can either order the frame with your specs (normal seat tube, or seat tube for your height) or you can order a normal size frame (like 18inch, for ex.) wich comes with a adjustable seat tube. The seat tube adjusts almost on top, near the seat. Corratec and the new offroad Look frames uses this same design.
