    29er recommendations for tall guy

    I'm 6'6" and shopping around for a used 29er hardtail. Right now I'm keeping my eyes out for a Niner EMD, Air 9, and Santa Cruz highball. Any other suggestions?

    My budget is around $1,800 (fully built bike) so even though I know custom is a great option, it is not in the budget. I live in CO so I do a lot of climbing and some moderately technical trails. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    You'll be very lucky to get any of those at that price. Most anything by any of the big brands will be fine as well - Specialized etc.
    I had an OnOne Scandal in 21" and it was a great bike - I'm 6'7".

    A Surly Ogre with a RockShox Reba fork could be had for around $1900. Damn solid bike
