I know there are couple of frames that were produced for this specifically but are there any more?

I believe I-drives can be but the I'drive system doesn't totally eliminate chain growth so you would need a sprung loaded tensioner.

The DMR frame (can't remember what it's called) as can the Solid Flair like I used to have. The one thing these both have in common is that the main pivot is around the BB.

Any URT design can be run singlespeed.

Other, more complex designs will need a tensioner as mentioned already.

Kona A and Kona Cowan DS as the main suspension pivot is concentric with the BB
Lenz Milk Money, for the same reason.

URT frames such as the Voodoo here:

Was a proper hoot, but sadly a bit on the small size for me.
Frame is for sale at a bargain price if you want to dip your toe in the SS full-sus waters ;)
