Today I got a new frame, Cube Stereo 160 C:68 27.5 action team 20″.

Converted to hardtail via 20mm electricity tube. (to prevent the swing from hitting the frame)
The scales were tipped at 2259g for the frame with internal routing guides and some screws.
Wheel clearance is quite good, chainstay measures from 75 to 80mm in the tire area.
