Hi There,

I'm looking to put together a fun bike for doing some messing around on, the odd enduro dh race, bit of freeriding etc. im 6'5", 244lbs.

i just wanted to know what experiences you guys have had with certain kit and if it worked out for you. what would you recommend?
what manufacturers make coiled suspended 6"+ travel frames/bikes in large (19"+) sizes with some decent top tube length?

Thanks in advance for any help.
Do you have a budget? There are quite a few setups out there and a price range would be very helpful in narrowing things down a bit..
Hi There, yes, in USD's i would say between 1000 and 3000 dollars. i also have no problem in buying second hand. im leaning towards an old santa cruz vp free XL. i guess what i really want to know is what are the minimum seat tube and top tube lengths that i should be looking at? Thanks.
