    6'5 270 LBS will a 134 process in XL be alright?

    After my Mahuna got stolen this winter I'm in the neighborhood for a new bike and I'm loving what Kona is doing with the new process. I've only rode 29 before though in an XL frame on my Mahuna. My question is how will the XL frame process suit me? I'm 6'5 and weight about 270. Would love to hear from someone my size who could attest to its suitability. Thanks guys.

    I have a 34 inseam. Don't really know my reach.

    Geo aside,
    It is going to be flexy.
    I ride with a guy who is 260. He breaks everything. The answer for him was a custom built frame, and stout hand chosen components to build it.

    If I was your size (height and weight) I would look into a custom steel or ti hardtail
