Review: Trek's All-New 2020 Fuel EX Trail Bike
@freeridejerk888: I am 6'05" which pretty much narrows it down to Trek, Santa Cruz or Rocky (only the Element) since they are the only manufacturers I am aware of that carry XXLs. OK I think YT does as well. I found a shop I really like and decided to patronize them and they carry Trek. But now I see a SC in the horizon especially after attending a demo day here in Phoenix. And I also made the mistake of looking at the components you get per dollar. The Fuel EX 8 comes with GX and a similar price SC NX. Word of advice to anyone out there, don't focus on components unless everything else is equal. Fit and how it rides are all that matters.

Banshee Overhauls Rune & Releases New Titan Enduro Bike
@Primoz: I agree about the reach. I think 6'03 or 04 would be max for a rider height unless you were all legs. That's too bad. I am 6'05" and owned a XL Prime. Fabulous frame but sold it because it didn't have enough reach.

Review: Trek's All-New 2020 Fuel EX Trail Bike
Funny you should say this. I am on vacation right now and rented an XL SJ and have to say I am blown away. It rides way better than my new Trek and that really pisses me off especially since it's a lot less expensive. It's a lot of bike for the dollar and yes, a threaded BB. Being tall I never get to test ride a bike since shops seldom stock XLs let alone XXLs. So I bought the 2020 Fuel EX 8 sight unseen and....it's just OK so far. Not really impressed with it's climbing or descending ability but to be fair, it's early and I need to sort the bugs out. But so far I would have to give it a big Meh. Wished I would have seen this review first. It seems like a lot of glowing Fuel owner reviews always start out with "this is my first full suspension mountain bike".....

I am not a Specialized owner, but surprised they aren't represented here considering how big they are. They don't sponsor this kind of rider or their bikes can't handle rampage? Just wondering.
