For Dialled look at the Prince Albert or Alpine. Much cooler than common old Cotics :) If you feeling flush have a look at Evil bikes Sovereign and Transitions Trans Am.

Alpine has an 853 main triangle but the PA is good old 4130. Sovereign is 4130 too IIRC and I cannae mind the Trans Am.

Trans am is made from DoubleButted 4130 - galvanised I think - really strong - 6.2lb frame but really versatile - My LBS shop keeper says it is the best handling hardtail he has ridden.

there are a few brit builders now, moda, Enigma, orange, but the real route would be custom - shand, rourke, Burls, chas and dave.
