Dang. I was really looking forward to this review, as I'm 6'5" and have extra appreciation for your perspectives in that regard. Also, I've been riding a Norco Range for a couple of years now, and while I love it I would also love if it fit a bit better as an aggressive trail bike. The big man's any-ride-short-of-Rampage bike. I guess I'll have to keep riding this bike, and keep an eye out for the next gen Range.
Or spring for a Geometron with full EXT.
