Is it possible? Yes. The real question is this: "is it wise to do so?" My guess is no. If you want a 26 inch bike you should look for a 26 inch bike. My first thought is that putting 26 inch wheels on a 27.5 will result in an unacceptably low bottom bracket

Find a used or old stock 26er. It will probably be way cheaper, since the industry figured out that those wheels don't work well anymore ;)

I don't believe that GT will sell you a frame only, which is a shame since their frames are great, but their builds not so much...
