Hey guys, I looking for a new second bike, Here's what I'm looking for
Hardtail
27.5in F/r (NOT 27.5+)
130/140 Front travel
Carbon
12 speed
Large Frame size
Sub 27.5lbs
Decent components
66.5-65 Hta
Under 2,750
Let me know your suggestions, right now the only bike that really suits all this (that I can find) is a Transition Throttle, (and maybe a Sync'r if I can swap the tires?)
Let me know your thoughts and suggestions of course
Thanks in advance

I am also interested in this exact setup. I would settle for alloy frame, as far as I can tell it does not exist. If this unicorn exists, please post. Thank you.

I think there's a lot more in alloy, I don't think they weigh less than 27.5 lbs, but there are a few. Such as the Santa Cruz Chameleon, Vitus Sentier, Nukeproof scout, Kona Big Honzo, Marin San Quentin, Devinci Kobain, Specialized fuse, and Rock Mountain Growler.

my friend has a transition throttle, it's an absolute ROCKET. SO bloody fast. I'm not a fan of the fantastic plastic but, damn it's a nice, fast, drool worthy, jealousy inducing bike

That's what I'm looking for, something that can fly up the mountain on an XC ride, remain pretty relaxed on the descents, but have a super playful attitude.

As for alloy vs carbon, I get it, I always run carbon frames, but I will never run carbon cranks, or a stem, and I even prefer a alloy derauler cage.
