6'4", 215#. Last two frames I really liked were a Yeti 4x and Cove Stiffe SL. I still had to use a 75mm stem on the Yeti because it was a little short, but that rode perfect. I'm looking for something to replace it, cheap, but strong enough to handle heavy rider load. I prefer gears, but not married to them. I'm assuming my size means at least 26" but maybe 27.5" wheels?

I've got a long DJ I was likely going to shift this summer. Need to trim our herd down from 14 bikes.

GT, single speed, I'll look up the model and details and send to you.

I might want to head up your way when we're allowed to see people again, just to ride it around the driveway to see if it's long enough.

I'm looking for a much cheaper bike, so old isn't an issue. Building up a new bike would be close to $2k; that's not what I'm looking to do by any means.
