    What do the tall ride?

    I am 6'7" and ride a 23" Gary Fisher Mamba with some upgrades. I was just wondering what other tall riders were riding?

    Seems like 6'4 ish can still get away with regular XL bikes but you folks out there taller than that are seeking out XXL frames or 23 inches.

    I'm 6"4 275 and have a 21 inch Redline Monocog 29er and a 22 Inch Metobecane Fantom Pro 29er.

    I'm happy on both the bikes but can't say iver ever thrown a leg over a XXL or 23"

    6'6" - 230 and ride a 2011 XXL Specialized FSR Expert 29er. An OUTSTANDING trail bike, but might be a bit more than I need for what I ride these days. At the moment I'm really interested in the XL Jet 9 RDO. That might be a better fit for my riding. And satisfy my newbikeitis at the same time.

    Before the 29er I almost bought a Mojo. Can't see going back to 26" wheels at this point. The Jet looks like a nice substitute!

    There are no Niner dealers anywhwere near me, so it's not likely I'll get to throw a leg over one. Have any of you big guys ridden one? Just wondering about the fit....

    Cheers

    I have a XL Niner WFO and at a hair under 6'5", the bike fits like a glove. I love it! It's the one bike I've had that I feel like I'm in the bike vs over the bike. And it's so big I'm pretty sure it would fit someone a couple of inches taller than me. Great article on the WFO recently at sicklines too.

    I'm 6'6 and love my el mariachi. It's set up as a ss with 2' riser bars and bar ends so I can climb out of the saddle in comfort.
