First Ride: Salsa Deadwood SUS 29+
If this bike doesn't make sense to you, you're clearly not the target audience. Different strokes for different folks, yo.

Pivot Releases New Mach 4 Carbon and LES 27.5 Models
Hmm, zero mention of a XL frame, so no one over 6 feet tall need apply. Big people like snappy rides and cool stuff too, y'know.

Yeti and Norco Factory Racing EWS Rotorua Team Bike Checks
@grandmastere: Speaking as a big guy (I'm 6'4") I'm so tired of most manufacturer's decision to make their largest bikes with overly short head tubes, like Norco. Yeti at least uses a proper-sized head tube length of 165 mm in their XL frame. When you're tall, you often have to keep adding more and more headset spacers to bring your bars up to a reasonable height, negating the benefits of a lower front-end.

Connor Fearon and the Kona Hei Hei Trail: Out of the Box
The XL is weirdly reserved for the 29er version only.

Connor Fearon and the Kona Hei Hei Trail: Out of the Box
I bought a XL Hei Hei (the 29er version) last summer and it's a great bike. Maybe it's just not all what the marketers think, but other conditions as well... For example, I'd looked at a Process but despite their apparent awesomeness, Kona makes the XL seat tube length ridiculously short, so I had to go with the Hei Hei. At 6'4" and a 37" inseam, I can't ride a 19" seat tube even with a gigantically long seatpost jammed in there. Given this and many other factors, it's likely Kona is in a quiet period with the Process and will release an updated version (hopefully with a more reasonably sized seat tube) in the near future. They're not a big company and don't have a ton of extra resources like a Trek, Giant or Specialized.
