Are you ruling out all 73mm BBs?
Even though they are literally the same just without the spacers

I don't know price or dropout size but a few that spring to mind are

All good frames but only the On-One inside the budget.

Stretch the budget a little and get the Cotic BFe, you won't be disappointed :)

456 (steel or maybe carbon) is the obvious choice.
