Any suggestions? Cube makes a great one but only sells complete bikes and not in the U.S. Everything else I have found is 15 or 16 inches. My budget will not allow me to buy a complete bike and strip the parts which may or may not sell. Iḿ looking for my son who has sponsors so components would have to change.

Many 26" frames have room for 650B wheels and tyres (with 650B forks) - probably more will take them than won't, especially if you are running 1x so there is no front mech band to get in the way.

The Cube above is a 29er in all but the smallest size which is 27.5 on a 13.5" frame.
