Norco Optic XL for tall riders?

I am looking at buying a Norco Optic. Norco's website recommended height for an XL frame is 6'3". I am a taller rider (6'5") and very interested in this bike. I initially thought this bike was a no-go but looking at the measurements (reach of 510 MM and a 1275 MM wheelbase) I think it might be a good fit. Other XL bikes I fit on have smaller wheelbases and reach so I am guessing this bike would work.

Any tall riders out there riding an XL Optic? If so what are your thoughts?

I'm 6' 2". I think at 6' 5" it will be boarderline too small. Yes, its long, but with the steeper actual+effective STA it really doesn't feel any longer than anything else that is pretty modern.

Thanks for the feedback!
