    XXL Clothing in the Yeti Store?

    Why isn't Yeti stocking anything in XXL in their store? I'd love to get my hands on a Performance Hoody and a jersey or two but I've never seen them in stock. Considering that Yeti is one of the only brands with bikes that fit tall riders you'd think that it would be good to stock the XXL stuff. John P, this might be the time to rethink the stock strategy considering the wild popularity of the SB series bikes. I'm sure your rider base has grown substantially!

    25.5+" top tubes. Very hard to find these days without something else being weird (like slack seat angles or short seat tubes). My XL SB66 has a 25.9" top tube ---- perrrfffeccctttt!

    That's true I suppose. I'm 6'5" and find that a 25" ETT is enough for me, but I usually also run a 130mm stem... But I'm a bit old fashioned...

    That's definitely old school XC around my neck of the woods. Even on my XC bike (XXL SC Tallboy carbon) I'm running what is considered a long stem ... and it is 100mm. 120mm on my road bike though!

    Since my 29er broke, I've been riding my old Salsa Ala Carte (26" wheels) which is rigid and has thumbshifters! I call it my neo-retro bike. Rough ride, but I tell you what, definitely hones your handling skills. Takes me back to the days when that was the only option...

    I have a xxl t and they had a performance hoodie for a while in the store. JP told me around x-mas that they had stuff comIng about now, so dibs on the next xxl Colorado hoodie.

    Oh and I went down from a 140 on my old hardtail to a 110 on my 5 and I felt like I was desecrating the Yeti putting on such a long stem.

    What is the largest Yeti Frame? I have a friend who is 6'-8" and looking for a bike. My XL 575 is too small for him.
