    I see a XXL hightower or hightower LT in your future. I'm on an XXL tallboy and it's amazing to have a bike fit me.
    Making shit harder than it needs to be isn't awesome, it's just...harder.

    it's on my list. Want to check out the hightower, the tallboy, and the GG smash and trail pistol. I'm not sure I need the long travel. My drop comfort zone is realistically limited to the 2.5-3' range at my upper limit.

    I run the tallboy with a 130mm fork and a 200mm dropper. It will handle almost anything I throw at it. Having the seat disappear lets you shift your weight around on the really steep stuff and jumps. I also run a CC inline rear shock and it transformed the rear of the bike. The front is so long on the new bikes that the ratio to the chain stay length gets out of wack. I was having to shift my weight way forward on flatter corners or the front wanted to wash out. Just swapped out the fork CSU from 51mm to 44mm offset and it made the bike more balanced and stable. Highly recommend a smaller fork offset for riders our size.
    FYI i'm just over 6'4" , 36 inseam and 185lb

    I know its always possible to meet or see someone taller, but when you're 6'6 and see someone 6'9, how does it feel?

    I'm only 6'1 and when I see someone much taller then me, my eyebrow lifts up and I say to myself "Damn, they are tall"

    6'8" 250-260ish, size 17 feet, 7'2" wingspan, XXXXL gloves. BIG! I also have a lot of big friends from my previous career as a professional volleyball player and I am slowly converting them into dirt bags.

    I myself have a big of mountain biking from some wreckless years spent downhilling, freeriding, DJing, in college but a lot of my friends have only ridden a mountain bike a handful of times. It is pretty interesting putting a bunch of very large, very athletic, and very competitive individuals on bikes together. Big guys fall hard! I have about 6 severed ligaments in my shoulder and knee to support this theory.

    Glory days in college.

    After years of trail riding a grossly undersized 18" Morphine I made the jump into modern bike tech with a XXL Hightower LT. I find the seat post angle is too slack for me but other than that the bike is a capable and playful beast.

    This was on our way back from spring break this year at the Mega Cavern. I'm not huge at 6'-4", 240lb but I still feel bad for the bike.

    Hit a real ramp yesterday for the first time. I have pulled up on mound jumps on the trail before, but this was my first real ramp. I took it a step further today and went down a mild jump line, with some decent size table tops. No pics or vids of that though, next time.

    Cool riding spot! Also awesome to see another Clyde on a a Clyde sized bike (fatty). Get yourself some fast rolling tires and pump them to 15psi and you will be able to hold that speed better..

    Congrats!!!

    For the bike
    For where ever you are, that you can still ride this time of year. It's getting cold for me, and I don't have a fatbike to ride in the snow or should I say 'On' the snow.

    Well I have a Specialized P3 DJ bike as well and it rolls much much better than the fat bike no matter what tires/pressure it has. On that same run on the dirt jumper I have to try not to go too fast.

    I forgot about this one...this is at the Cannonsburg ski area in Michigan.
