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

    Update:

    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.
