I am looking for recommendations for a budget build (back up bike).

Specs
130mm travel
non boost (15x100)
tapered steerer
standard disc brake mounts
29" wheel size
reasonable stiff

I just cant find anything that fits these parameters. There are a lot of options in 27.5 or at 100-120mm of travel. Any suggestions?

You might be able to find a used Pike for <$300 - since being non-boost is uncommon and less valuable for a Pike. Another fork to keep your eyes open for would be an MRP Stage.

Otherwise if you can find a Fox32 with a Fit4 that would be your best bet IMO. When I sold mine ($225) off my Stumpjumper I sorely missed it - thought I was upgrading with a 2018 Revelation with 35mm stanchions but it just does not feel as good.
