    What Alfine hub?  What through axle bike?  This information  is important to know.  Pictures would also help.


    Essentially you're wanting to take an 11 speed internal geared hub and put it on a derailleur drive system bicycle.  Even amongst the models you listed there's several different variations of those models.  From what I know of these bikes most are metal frames which means they could be cut and rewelded so an IGH would fit.  You'd also have to change out to a single chainring as well.

    Bottom line is it'd be much cheaper to buy a frame designed for the Alfine hub rather than trying to modify one of the frames you mentioned.
