I am 6'2" and Santa Cruz is the only company that makes bikes that I would actually use an XL instead of the Large. It just seems much more cramped "to me" than most other manufacturers. I would be very surprised if a Large would be appropriate but I suppose it depends on your inseam vs torso lenght vs arm length. My inseam is 34.75"

I am 5'10".5 and rode a large and it was comfortable for riding aggressively. At 6'4" you should be on the XL Heckler. You will find the large to be cramped regardless of what stem you use. I used a 55 or 65mm stem on my large.

Keep in mind that SC size their frames small. At least the Heckler anyways.

I am 6'4 I ride a XL VP Free, fits me perfect, more perfect than my Ellsworth Dare. Best fit in fact since I was young and riding a fully speced, Marin Indian Fire Trail, man that was long while ago........

Go with the XL
