After suggestions as im thinking of changing my Cube stereo for something but iv only recenlty bought a brand new set of wheels for it which arnt convertible. Looking for frame only options for bikes with 120mm upwards of travel that take 142x12 rear wheels, am i right in thinking some mountain cycle frames have bolt off dropouts that can be changed, what about cannondale? Judge/Perp?

Anyone got any ideas?

I think quite a few of the new all mountain / Enduro frames will suit (I hate these silly terminologies, but its the only way I can think to describe them!).

The new Five is available with that rear end.

if you have a ringle hub you can buy kits to change the width

Lots. Pretty much every manufacturer has at least some 142x12 bikes, plenty to choose from.
