    need recommendation 2m (6.7) tall rider, dually 130mm+ travel

    Hi guys,

    I know there are some posts about bikes for tall guys. It is strange that 6.3 is considered tall since most of the manufacturers accommodate those riders.

    The better question is 2m tall rider, looking for dually with at least 130mm travel back and front
    All mountain so need be able to pedal up as well as going down.

    seat height (pedal to top of the seat) 41.5". yes its not a mistake.
    Got 2018 Giant TCR Adv 1 and it barely fits.

    Ideally would like carbon, price range 3500-5000

    thanks a lot for help

    23" Trek Fuel Ex w/ custom 140mm fork ^^

    If they (Fuel Ex) came stock w/ 140mm Revelation/Pike (or the like) up front, a 50mm stem/780mm handle bar combo & a more aggressive front tyre....

    I'd be all over it!!
