Here are two you could use, the stroke is over 40mm though.... could end up with a damaged frame, or extra travel but I think you can adjust the pressure to correct that possibly?

Thanks for the info.  John from LightCarbon Sugested the Fox DPSX2 also.  I didn't want to spend 500$ on a shock but I might have to.  Although I do like the rockshox if it fits.  Here is the dementions for the rear shock LightCarbon gave me.  20-54*165*40mm.

Yes I'll post images as I progress.  I'm still in the process of buying the drive train and fork.  Now I just need $$$$$$

On the website, it says the frame is good for 2.3" 29er. Is there much room to run thicker tyres or maybe a 2.6/2.8 27.5?

No.  I think that would be a tight fit.

Ok, I looked again.  There is NO holes in the top tube or seat tube. The only hole near the rear shock is at the bottom of the frame. Is the for drainage?  (see pic).  I'm still looking for a rear shock that fits.  My choices are 165x38 Fox DPS (standard mount) or 165x42 Fox DPS(Trunnion mount).  Has anyone had luck using spacers in the rear shock to limit the stroke? Thanks.

Hi. thanks for everything. I also ordered this frame. It's a pity that you can not put remote control for the shock.

Hi Java82.  Glade to hear you pulled the trigger one this frame. I don't want to do this build alone,,,Ha Ha.  I'm anxious to see and hear how your build goes.  Do you have a list of components you are going to use?  I'm still debating on fork and drive train.  Also I'm a little confused on the correct spindle width and Q factor for the 1x11 (148mm) boost rear hub. I still consider myself a greenhorn on bike building. I've only built 2 china bikes :o.
