    Stack and Reach Charts for pretty much all XL Bikes

    For all you tall people out there, I've compiled geometry for pretty much every XL and XXL bike I can find. What follows is the most exhaustive collection of bikes for tall people that exists on the web to the best of my knowledge.


    Lots of information about how and why I size bikes using stack and reach: The Earth Remains - Journal - Bikes for the Very Tall


    Click on any chart for an interactive view, and access to all the geometry numbers for each bike featured.


    Full Suspension Bikes:



    Hardtails:




    Road Bikes:




    All-Road Bikes:



    Fat Bikes:

    Here - top up your road bike data:

    Of course, not all bikes are available in all markets, but GOOD EFFORT.

    I hope we get something new out of Sea Otter for us tall types.

    Yeah, I'm American and the list is definitely biased towards common brands in the US. Could you tell me the most common or important European companies I should add to my list?

    I tried suggesting this via an edit request, but I really think you should add weight limits for frames for us bigger fellas.

    I sent you a few weight limits for a few brands/models.

    You should add Guerilla Gravity bikes to your list. You'll find them firmly on the far right side of your graphs. I'm buying one now in XL. Nicolai is also very big rider friendly and makes some of the most artfully finished bikes on the planet

    That table is very good In fact it gave me a lot second thoughts and I need to revise my sizing approach as I was ignoring Stack and focusing on Reach only.

    Awsome! Thanks.
    Now that I have my XXL Tallboy I will never buy a mountain bike with under 500mm of reach. Never had a bike that actually fit me before. I almost wish I had waited for the Hightower, but would only use the extra travel a couple times a year.

    Yes...thanks for you spreadsheet...I reference it often! I'm a Trek guy though and noticed you are missing the 23" Trek Fuel 29er (in aluminum). It would slide into your 3 spot on full suspension bikes with a BB-HT of 819.6. Also, the "XXL" Trek Fuel Carbon you have on the list is a 21.5"...they do not make the 23" in that model...

    Good catches! I need to pay more attention to Trek. Changed the 21.5" carbon model to XL and added the XXL/23" aluminum version to the spreadsheet.
