I am building a 27.5 one up at the moment for my son.

I found the rear clearance at the chainstays on the tight side for our combo.
WTB i35 rims, tried a Bontrager SE4 in 2.4 and it fit but minimal clearance, settled on a 2.3 High Roller 2 which has more space and quite a square profile.
I also test fitted an HD in 2.35 (on the 27mm rims from my trail bike) and was a bit tighter than the HR2 on the wide rim.

Going with a DHF 2.5wt on some 150mm pikes upfront.

Will also look to get pic's next time I have it out

Alrighty then... Finally reporting back as the build nears completion.

Just did some measuring for a dropper post on the weekend, looks like 125mm will be just right for the little guy, and need to grab some valves & tape to finish the tubeless setup.

As mentioned earlier, the clearance in the rear is pretty tight at ~5mm either side of the rear tyre to the chain stays with the 2.3 HRII on a 35mm WTB rim.

Couple of pics...
