    Aluminium HT frame for 2,6" tire

    Hi guys,
    Looking for an Aluminium Hardtail frame with Boost 148mm for 2,6"(!) tire, 65° HA, designed for 140mm+ fork travel for Freeride style riding. Should have inner cable routing

    thank you for any recommendation,

    The Nukeproof Scout is darn close to what you're asking for. It checks all the boxes, other than the inner cable routing. It does have inner cable routing for the dropper post, but the rear deraileur/rear brake are external.

    65 degree HTA, 73 degree STA (with a 130mm fork).

    The Ragley Marley and Mmmbop are also close. Clearance for 2.6in tires, HTA's between 65.5 degrees, and 64 degrees. Those are stock with 130mm forks though. I can't see on their website if they accept 140mm + forks though. Usually you're safe to overfork a bit, but not sure if they would be ok with 150mm +.

    The NS Bikes Eccentric ALU is close as well, but it doesn't have as much tire clearance in the back (at least on the 27.5 model).

    Good luck on the search .

    I went through this same type of search. Most AM hardtails are 29er with 27.5 x 3.0 anymore.

    I’m not sure if 27.5 internal routed aluminum hardtail exist.

    Transition had the throttle, but that is carbon, and is a 140 bike. All you might find is leftover new old stock and used bikes.

    Another aluminum model I’ll throw out there is Bird Zero AM. Other than the other aforementioned models I can’t think of any.

    Vast majority of 27.5 AM hardtails are steel made by UK companies.

    Thank you guys.
    I use a Orbea Loki MY2017 with 27,5x2.8" tires. This frame has internal routing but a to steep HA Yesterday I checked the successor the Laufey MY2020 which will be delivered with 29" tires and an updated geometry i.e. a HA of 65°. Unfortunately they don't sell a frame set
    Steel is not an option. I will keep searching...

    @Smackem - which was your choice?

    I anticipate getting the Bird Zero AM, but currently they are out of size smalls.

    I would have preferred an ett a bit longer, as well as chainstay and reach. But, I didn’t find them too far of from my ideals to be a dealbreaker.

    For a moment I also considered a Kingdom Vendetta (ti bike) but realized I was dropping $1800 on my “cheap” hardtail.
