Hey gang. Just wondering about 27.5 boost bikes. I would like to try a 27.5 boost bike with 2.6 to 3.0 tires on it.

Any advice on which bikes I could look at?

I second the kobain. I have one and it's awesome. Best bike I've ever ridden, and it took me a lot further than I thought it was going to. I'm just getting back into mountain biking and this completely brings my confidence back from 10 years ago.

Cannondale Bad Habit is a riot to ride. As is thier Beast of the East if you want hard tail. Or you can do as I am and go Giant Trance (2017) and convert it to plus. Currently running mine with 3 up front and 2.8 in back. Fun as hell, all of them.

Try before you buy.

Camber 650 fits 2.6 front and rear and is an absolute riot!

Would help if you gave a bit more info on what type och 27.5+ bike you´re after. Hardtail or fs? XC, Trail, AM or Enduro etc?

My 1st choice would be a Rocky Mountain Pipeline, same as my Altitude but "fattie" tires. For a hardtail, Specialized Fuse. I am happy with the 2.4s on my Altitude, but hear Altitudes will fit 2.8 front and 2.6 rear if I want to try something bigger when mine wear.

The pipeline has a little more travel than you are looking for, but I am very happy with 160/150 on my Altitude. The shocks are stiff in climb mode and the bike climbs great, switch to descend and the bike is a beast downhill.

Hard to beat a devinci troy 2.8 dhf front 2.6 dhr or hi roller in back 15_18 psi. It's like cheating

Devinci also makes 27.5+ bikes too. Used to be Django but they changed some models this year I think.
