    New question here. Looking for Aluminum Enduro frame

    I am looking for a good aluminum frame for enduro(designed for180 mm fork preferred). I want something that would work well with CCDBCS inline. Any thoughts? I would like 650b an compatibility with a fox 36 float. If not possible I would be happy to go Rockshox. My order of importance is Aluminum frame-CCDBCS-650b-Fox. I will be building the bike custom. Any thoughts?

    Knolly Warden ticks all your boxes except fork length.

    Transition Patrol may be a good option as well. I really liked the shorter travel Scout I rode at Outerbike.

    Also look at the Guerrilla Gravity Megatrail. Don't know if it's 180 fork compatible but what fun, rock solid bike.

    If you can find a Knolly Chilcotin it would fit the bill as well. And it is 180 compatible (though "only" 26").

    Is there a 650b 180mm fork out there?

    Fox 36 is 160 or 170mm in 650b, does come in 180mm but only in 26 (unless there is something new out there).

    Any one of those mentioned above are good choices.
    I would also look at the Intense T275a

    You might be able to find a used tracer 2. I am pretty sure it will run a 180mm fork, not sure though . I have a 160 fox 36 on mine and it is awesome. Otherwise is meets the rest of your requirements. It will even take 27.5 wheels if you change the drop outs. Where do you need a 180mm fork for enduro?
    Looking for a Medium Scott Scale frame, preferably a 2012 in 26.

    To add to that, I haven't ridden anything on it that the 160mm Pike couldn't handle including some gnarly high-speed rock gardens and I weigh 245lbs with gear. So maybe a 180mm fork isn't needed?
