    SX L barely big enough

    6'2.5" I ride a large SX Trail w/ a 90mm stem. Lots of jumping, shuttle type riding. The L SX is barely big enough and would not have worked if it weren't for the Reverb, which has proven to be awesome.

    I had a medium Bullit with the idea that I wanted it to be flickable on jumps but climbing up to descents got old in that crunched up position and even an extra long post didn't get me full leg extension. I switched to a large and am happy. Of course 55mm stem, any longer makes handling feel weird.
    Keep the Country country.

    ride an 2008 giant glory in Large with a 888 out front. Never wished it was smaller. Rides great with some big long bars.
    I live in Maine and I hate lobster.
