    Full suspension frame recommendations (26" conversion?)

    Looking for a full suspension frame to build up with non thru-axle hubs. I have a pair of 27.5 Blunts laced to 100/135 disc hubs with standard 9/10mm QR skewers.

    I don't know much about what's out there that could work with these wheels or what older full suspension 26ers might work as a 27.5 conversion. I'd like to run something around 2.3".

    (And something with a standard 1 1/8 head tube so I can run my old Fox fork.)

    Would really appreciate any ideas. Thanks.

    You've limited yourself to the cheapest low end frames possible. The straight head tube is the nail in the coffin.

    Plan on a tapered frame and an adapter headset. Don't even bother looking for straight head tubes.

    How much travel? What's your budget?

    I believe a Santa Cruz Heckler would work.
