    If anyone is interested, Santa Cruz still has at least one XXL Tallboy carbon on sale in their online store for only $1550 plus shipping. It has the Kashima RP23. I picked one up, and it is a beautiful bike, especially for about half price! It has the 135mm rear (they switched to 142/12mm maxle), but I used a DT Swiss RWS 10mm skewer, which should be much better than the quick release.

    I have mixed thoughts about 22" frames; are they really big enough for the ridiculously tall?

    Until you ride one, you will not know how much nicer a bike to size is. At least 23" with a long toptube rides so much better.

    If you have the means go Zinn (Lenz) - they'll get the HT length/height correct which always seems to be a blatant deficiency in most frames built for tall folks.

    I'm 6'9" and 235 before breakfast. I ride two 29ers - an XXL Specialized Camber and an XL (22") Vassago Chupacabra hardtail. Both of them fit me fine, although I need a Thomson setback seatpost and a 105mm stem on the Chupa. The Camber is plenty big enough for me with only a straight post and a 90mm stem, plus I believe the tube lengths are pretty similar to the full-suspension Stumpjumper 29er. If you have a specialized dealer close by I'd recommend inquiring about their XXL full suspension frames and whether they have one in stock. I'm sure you tall gents can imagine how amazing it was for me to walk into a bike store and fit on a bike pulled right off the rack.

    Does anyone have a Zinn Terra bike? If so, what are your thoughts. I haven't found any reviews on this bike, 3.0 or 5.0, on the internet. It would be hard to spend a lot of money on a bike for a great fit, but an average ride.

    If any of you big guys are interested, I just listed an XXL Carbon Santa Cruz Highball in the classifieds as a frameset. Killer bike ( my brother has one in the same size which I rode as a test ) and it fits my 6 6" frame nicely. Love the fact that it weighs a whopping 2.4lbs. Insane.
