    Hi,

    Frame Alloy 6061
    1 1/8" Fork Manitou Tower Expert 29er / remote lockout
    Shimano XT RD-M870
    Shimano XT
    Shimano Discs M445 180/160

    I cant think of any hybrids with a fork comparable to the Manitou Tower which is a full on mtb fork. All hybrids I know have shorter travel and not designed for harsh off road, at least not like the Tower. There are many hybrids with 29er wheels but most won't take a 2.1/54c tire. So what are your tire requirements? Maybe you should be looking at mountain bikes.

    You should definitely be looking at mountain bikes.

    Should i re-post this in the mountain section then? Or can you recommend some bikes with this type of spec for me to look at?

    Cheers.

    NOTE: I donīt want rear suspension! Hardtail equivalents to compare please.

    I'm not familiar with the fork, but the XT components are Mid-High level, so I would guess any mid-high level 29er hardtail.

    Yes , the component pick is getting lofty.

    more pro full tilt racing MTB $3K but here is SLX on Treks top Dual Sport

    This 29er opts for SRAM components http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes...race/x_caliber

    Of course contracting a Frame and then picking the components , custom level like Mike Ahrens, perhaps. He is an Aluminum Frame Builder..
