You're right, but like anything else, it does cost money, and when the develpment/molds/paterns/etc are created for only 1% of customer base it really makes sense that it's so much more expensive. Turner makes an XXL model in the 5spot and some of the older models. I picked up a 2008 RFX frame for $450 that was in perfect condition it has a 23" seat tube and 26.3" top tube, plus the BB height is 14.1 which means I could run longer cranks without worrying about pedal strike. My XXL Stumpjumper was allright as far as the Geo but the rearend was far from stiff and I really hated that rear shock. Yeti's XL size has a pretty long top tube too!!
