Anyone try a modern giant build?

Then I wouldn't. In order to fit a sprocket and brake on there you would need to stretch the rear, and I wouldn't recommend it on an aluminum frame
You get one bend from aluminum if you are careful, if you bend it back that's when stuff breaks in half.

It would be a tough call unless you already had the bike and know what you're dealing with.
 
It's not a modern Giant, but it works in spite of that fork.

 
I put a CG motor on these bikes. I know they are aluminum and it's a shoe horn fit. The blue one is a 29er with a 19 inch frame and the black one is a 27.5 with an 18 inch frame.

I wouldn't recommend doing it, just saying it can be done and they both work great. Steel is the way to go.

Would i??? Dunno about that.
How wide would you say a rear axle of a drum brake hub is?

I would definitely consider a custom rear hub, especially if i use a thru axle/boost axle.
