Is it possible for a 6'1 rider with a 34" inseam and long arms to properly fit on an 08 XL Turner Sultan 29er?

Waiting on parts to get here, then i will build it up and see how it fits.

I wanted to see if anyone on these forums knows anyone or is this type of rider and what size frame you ride on?

I would say yes, I'm 6'2" w/34" inseam long torso/arms and ride an XL 08, the fit is perfect.

no problem

I'm 6'1.5" on a 09 DW which fits great. I run a Thomson 0 offset seatpost and a 90mm x 0 stem.
Enjoy....................

Might as well try it yourself if you have everything in hand (or on the way), but the '07/'08 Sultans run bigger than the DW versions. I'm 6' and like a long top tube (riding a XL DW Spot for this reason), but wouldn't dream of owning a bike with a 25.5" top tube like the '08 XL Sultan had. Not to say it won't work for you (especially if you like a high front end & short stem), but I think you could comfortably fit on a large too, perhaps more so.
