  • Frames to accommodate 180mm travel forks

    So I have recently had to write off my 2008 cube fritzz, pivot bolt sheared and wrecked the swing arm!

    All other parts are in good working order, just need some suggestions of 26 inch wheel frames that would take Marzocchi 66 RC3 forks.

    Something similar or better at climbing would be great(if possible), just unsure of what else is out there!

    Thanks

    Can the travel be reduced to 160? would give you more options…

    Banshee Rune V3 is the perfect solution.

    Late-model Orange Patriot (2012-13 IIRC).

    Had the 66 RC3 ti on mine and it was a match made in heaven.

    Get the biggest one you can, the seat tubes are all short.

    Would like to stick with the 180mm forks as I don’t really want to buy forks aswell as a frame!

    It it helps, your 26 wheels will prob work fine in a 27.5 frame, even if it’s boost you can get an adapter, same for tapered to straight steerer.
