    Link to frame with geometry?
    Get a fork with a similar A-C length to what the frame is designed to use.

    Is that a motorized fatbike?

    465 mm is usually a sagged 80 mm travel 29er fork. I would ask the manufacturer what they recommend. On some frames, you can use a longer fork without screwing up the handling or risking breaking the frame.

    So my guess would be 80mm maximum.

    Thanks, the bike sellers don't give good advice
    not their frame bla bla bla, their resposibilty LOL
    I will use 27,5" 100mm rockshox SID WC offset 46
    27.5" suspension fork is smaller so I will hope it work.

    A 100mm SID will work fine if it's what you intend to use. 487mm A2C, once sagged would get you exactly where you want to be.

    To be clear though, it looks like this geometry is intended for 27.5x3.0" tires. There's a B+ version of the 27.5" SID and a normal (non-plus) version with less tire clearance.

    If you don't intend to run 27.5x3.0 tires or as a 29er, 60mm of BB drop will put you pretty low with 27.5x2.3".

    If I can find Tire Co Speedster - 27.5" x 3.0" this tires want to use

    The fork I prefer: RockShox SID World Cup 100mm

    Which fork can I use?
    Wheels are 27.5 "
    The forks 27.5 inches 27.5 + / 29 inches and 29 inches
    Maxle 15x100 and 15x110mm boost
    Offset 42/46/51

    Is there a difference between 27.5" - 27.5 +/29 inch and 29 inch forks
    I need this fork but can not be found:
    27.5 + / 29 inches 15 x 110mm boost offset 46

    The best I found is:
    1. RockShox SID World Cup Solo Air OneLoc 27.5+/29 Inch Fork - 100mm - 51mm Offset - Tapered - Maxle Ultimate - 15x110mm Boost

    2. Rock Shox SID WC SA 2017 29" - matte black Oneloc Sprint 46mm - 15x100mm

    3. SID World Cup - Solo Air 100 29" BOOST - 15x110 - 51 offset

    Option 1 and 2 is offset 51mm, good with 27.5" wheels?
    Option 2 Waxle 100mm not boost can these fork 3.0" tires?
    Option 3 is 29" is this A2C or more?

    Why would they use titanium for an e-bike?

    Is that even a tapered head tube?

    It is the only frame for Bafang Ultra motor that I can buy, and have Rohloff speedhub dropouts.

    yes it is tapered head tube.
