    Tall hardtail frame that will fit a 2.5" tire

    I just found a crack in my performance Access XCL 29er frame. I liked it because it would fit a 2.5 WTB Dissent in the rear. What are some other hardtail frames that come in a 22 or 23 inch size (around 25.5" top tube) and will fit big rear tires?

    Yeah I'm really only interested in what the frame can handle or rear wheel. If you ever mount up an ardent, let me know how it fits.

    The Misfit Dissent will handle a 2.5 in the rear. It's a little shorter than what you're after, and you'll be limited to a 1x9 setup with full-length housing, though.

    New Kona

    Have you looked into the new Kona hardtail 29er that is coming out in October?

    I think it will be called the Kona Honzo...
