    Most aggressive 29er to take 135mm rear hub?

    I'm looking to consolidate my stable. I have a Canfield Yelli Screamy 29er that I love and a Cannondale Rush carbon 26", but I'm looking for a 29er with full suspension that has some similar attributes - fairly slacked out, 130mm or more travel.

    Trouble is, seems most bikes in this category now have changed to a 142x12mm maxle. I'd like to use a bolt-on Rohloff I have to build up the bike, which uses a 135mm axle.

    As I've been looking, seems like a lot of bikes have made this rear axle transition in the last few years, but it's hard to find info on past season's models.

    Any recommendations?

    The Trek Remedy series is great and has ABP convert....so you can convert the frame back to 135mm to run that wheel.
