    Options for 6'6" rider?

    Of the common brands all I can find in XL is the Santa Cruz v10 and that's an expensive bike.

    You need to look at the actual geometry numbers instead of the manufacturer's arbitrary sizing, for example a medium GT Fury is actually longer than an XL Santa Cruz V10, as is a large Norco Aurum. An XL Devinci Wilson on the on the other hand is about the same size as the XL V10. Every brand does their sizing in their own wonky way, the only way to compare them is to look at the numbers on the frame geometry tables.
