    XL Czar demo in the midwest?

    I'm dangerously close to throwing down a deposit on a Czar for when the next batch of XL frames arrive, but if at all possible would like to demo beforehand to confirm sizing/geometry and that the lust factor remains. Anyone know of a dealer that may have them available? Or anyone willing to trade bikes for a couple hours while I try their own? I'm near Chicago, but willing to make a day trip if an opportunity arises.

    been riding a large scandium Niner Air 9 for the last few years. On that bike I'm toward the upper limit of comfortable for the Large, but an XL would likely be too big for my taste. In the past I had a setback seatpost which was better, but have been riding comfortably on a zero setback since last season.
    Inseam measured at 35" by the book to crotch method. The vtt length is equal between my current bike and the XL Czar, and the increased slack of the Czar seat tube may buy me a slightly roomier cockpit, which would be welcome. Riding style is XC, thanks to the midwest topography.
