I like the idea of the BMC 2 stroke but few things turn me; the carbon model uses a proprietary seat post; tire clearance is lacking; and I prefer steel hardtails. Is there a bike like the Two Stroke but in steel with clearance for at least 29x2.45? I want something I can ride blue and xc black trails but also bikepack with(top tube mount would be plus). I assume the Two stroke max is 120mm of travel without being considered over forked correct? I probably wont run more than 110mm but nice to know if it can do 120mm. My budget is about $2000, which is what a carbon Two Stroke starts at. Not looking for anything too heavy either, saps energy out of my knees.
