    2.6 Tire Compatible Frame List

    Just broke a new 2017 rig and now shopping for new frame. I want something that will fit the new round of 2.6 tires. I searched but could not find a list of frames. I prefer aluminum frames for cost but will be considering everything...

    My very weak list is:

    Ibis Ripley LS
    GG Trail Pistol

    Both of which state they will not take the new REKON....So. a bit of a short list for a supposed size that is going to be in the market...

    Any ideas?

    Stache will take that size. In the Plus forum a list of 29+ frames will work.

    I mounted a DHF 2.6 on my Knolly with room to spare.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    I can't see why a current Fuel EX or Hightower would not handle them. I have the new larger Bontrager 29rs with room to spare. A friend with Hightower has plus tires and it's clear he could have larger diameter tires.

    We're both loving the bikes. You cannot think of the current Fuel EX as like same name bike from generations past.

    Another friend recently got the Trail Pistol mentioned but I haven't heard a report from him yet.

    Where did you get a 29" x 2.6" DHF, I can't find them on a couple of google searches and I dont even see them listed on the Maxxis website?

    What 2.6 tire is being used as the measuring stick? Usually they're all a little different in width and height.

    Also test full compression and see if it hits the seat tube.

    When we say 'compatible', how many mm of space is good? Depends on the amount of mud riding involved right?
