    New question here. Suggestions for 27.5 FS frame

    I'm looking for a 27.5 full suspension frame to build up over the winter. I already have an RSD Big Chief 29+ for winter and casual riding so this second bike will be for more aggressive trail riding. I'm 5'11", 180lbs and north of 40 years old.


    • Preferably aluminum, I'd like to keep it in the $1500-$2000 USD range with shock
    • I intend to run 2.35 to 2.5" tires
    • 120-140mm rear travel is probably all I need
    • External cable routing and threaded BB would be great, but whatever
    • 148mm spacing (EDIT: on second thought, 157 is fine too)


    My short list right now:


    • Commencal Meta AM - Large
    • RSD Wildcat - Large
    • Devinci Django - Large


    Further suggestions, comments, criticism, all welcome. Winter is long, so I can wait a few months if there are exciting things on the horizon.

    I have one and love it. Perfect for aggressive trail riding and made in USA.

    That bike ticks a lot of boxes! It's a beauty. I love the frame storage.

    It's a serious ripper of a bike. The build quality is excellent too. Some of the best welding that I've ever seen on a bike.
