    Frame Suggestions for 2.6" Tire?

    I am interested in building up an 27.5 SS. I have looked around, but haven't found any frames that I know will fit a 2.6" tire. I know it is a new width, so options may be few or none. I am reluctant to take my chances with a frame, since a friend already tried 2.6 & got rubbing in the rear in spite of tight clearance. I can't imaging putting 2.6 on a frame designed for B+ would be a good option with low BB height & long chain stays. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    All City Log Lady? They say it's optimized for a 2.4" tire, but I've seen some people on the interwebs running some fatter tires. Could be worth looking into.

    I don't see there being much difference between a 2.6 and a 2.8 plus tire on the same rim. A couple Surlys may work, the Karate Monkey or the Ogre. Perhaps the Advocate Hayduke also. The Salsa Log-lady is definitely a good suggestion.

    The Chromag wideangle would fit, but you would have to use a tensioner or get lucky with a magic gear.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.
