Getting ready to buy a trail bike, and my first choice is a Bronson. I'm 6'4.5" with pretty long legs and arms (road seat height is 86.5 cm from BB to top of saddle). I am pretty fit and flexible (175 lbs, ride a 14 cm bar drop on my road bike). I don't have a current mountain bike to replicate position off.
I won't be able to test ride my exact size, and I'm troubled by the fact that a search here revealed several complaints that the XL Bronson doesn't fit tall riders well and that we'd be much better served with the XXL Tallboy LTc. Candidly, I'm not sure why that would be. While the XXL TB has 1.4" higher stack and 0.25" longer reach, it'd be awfully easy to get a nearly equivalent bar position with 10 mm more stem and switching from a flat bar to a 1.25" riser.
Anyone my height compared the two directly? Thanks!
