Curious, the guys 6'2 plus guys how is the XL on the steep tech trails? Does it feel to large? Also jumping and throwing the bike around? Whips and jibbing. I'm in the market for a firebird but the shop only had a large at a great price. Rode it around during the streets but nothing to crazy. Felt okay but wanted to at least peddle a XL around ..kinda lost on which size..any feedback helps, cheers!

I'm 6'2" on an XL, 50mm stem. Yeah it's a bit of a bus on the really steep tight stuff. It starts to feel too big on tight switchbacks where the trail low speed cuts back on itself. Jumps are very stable. I think the bike is nice to move around in the air, has a reassuring weight to it. I had a shorter stem for a while and preferred that. I've not been tempted on a large, the XL works for me in 95% scenarios.
