Im about 6 foot tall currently, but I am still growing and I expect to be about 6 foot 4. I am in the market for a new 29er enduro bike ,last years specialized enduro 29 for example, and I would like to buy an xl so that I could ride it for a few years. I like a pretty lengthy bike, but I am worried that the bike may be too tall for me to ride comfortably. Would I be able to comfortably ride an xl at my current height?

Santa Cruz frames are on the smaller side

Yup, the XL Hightower has a decent 475mm reach but the seat tube is only 490mm so it's not a gate like. The Enduro 29 is shorter and also has a longer 520mm seat tube so you might feel a bit perched on top. I did anyway (I'm just under 6ft 2").
