    Jet 9 Carbon XL for 6'6/240?

    I've been searching for a FS 29er that will fit me at 6'6/240. I can't find a single XL or XXL of anything in my area (or state) that I can sit on.

    From some research I've done, it appears that Niner frames run large, and their website suggests the XL for 6'3-6'7.

    Any clydes out there riding one of these? It will be my first FS as I now ride a Surly Karate Monkey single speed rigid/hard tail in XL.

    Thanks!

    I'm 6'9" and 240 with gear and rode an older model WFO for 4 years. It fit well and rode great. I did break 3 swingarms and 1 main triangle, all warrantied. The WFO is the burliest frame in the Niner lineup so I am not sure if the Jet carbon will hold up over time with your size as it is intended. This is pure speculation on my part and if anyone who weights the same has time on one should correct me if I am wrong. The bike will fit you with a 90mm stem just fine as Niners tend to run big.
