Video: Ben Cathro on a Bike that Actually Fits Him - DH Savagery
I’m 7 feet, and agree with Cathro...you can make most bikes work...as long as you are young. Back, neck and knees feel it when you get older. I’ve been running an XL Kona Process for years (got an XXL Coilair back in the day and broke it several times so they switched me to a Process with the lifetime frame replacement) which works ok with a 3 inch riser bar. Seems like stack is more important than reach for me. My Waltworks 29+ 160mm has 720 stack and 530 reach...feels pretty perfect. Same for my XXL aluminum Guerrilla Gravity smash with 680 stack and 530 reach. Rented an XXL 2018 V10 in Whistler last summer...felt terrible until I swapped on the 3 inch bars...pretty sweet after that

@WasatchEnduro: I have a Smash in XXL...fork at 160mm. Incredibly versatile and capable. Ridiculously fun on every trail I’ve tried it on...

Also up for sale is my Kona Process 153. The frame is a warranty replacement, new to me as a demo model from Sellwood Cycle as of fall, 2017. I just discovered that it is a 2017 and not 2016 frame as originally posted. Small dent in drive side seatstay, shop says likely not a structural issue. Scratch in front top of top tube. Heel rub areas in paint on chain stays from my giant feet. Frame is otherwise in good shape. Had extensive tuneup/inspection at Fat Tire Farm, Portland OR in August 2018. Suntour Durolux 160mm fork rebuilt August 2018. Fox DPX2 rear shock, 150mm travel, bought new August 2018. SRAM Guide brakes bled August 2018. SRAM GX rear derailleur, bought new in fall of 2017. Set up 1 x 10 with wide range Sun Race cassette 11-46t. Hadley hubs front and rear (bombproof) built with Velocity Blunt 36h rims. Rear has new rim, rebuilt August 2018. Brand new VP Harrier flat pedals. Thin, grippy, nice big platform for big feet. 9Point8 200mm dropper seatpost, good working condition. Currently has 3 inch rise, 810mm wide Answer ProTaper bars, great for taller guys and/or those seeking higher stack. This bike is quite versatile and incredibly fun to ride. It was designed as a mini DH bike that you can pedal. I have found it to do quite a good job on uphills and still be very responsive and fun on flatter, more sedate trails. I made it work for me at 7 feet with the really high riser bars and really long 9point8 seatpost, but it would probably be better served for someone in the 6’1” or so to 6’9” range, depending on proportions. Asking $2400 plus shipping. Bike is in Redlands, CA and could be picked up by a local buyer or shipped at buyer expense.
