Tallest rider for 6.6?

Currently I ride a XC hardtail w/ 24.9 TT and 130 mm stem and I'm looking on 6.6 Large frame. According to specifications on Intense site, my height with a bit less than 6' 4" doesn't seem appropriate. The 6.6 seems quite short, only 23.8" of TT. For ex., Spec Enduro's TT is 25.7" (XL size). Type of riding: most of the time trail and longer tours. My hardtail fits perfectly so I'm a bit concerned w/ short cockpit of 6.6.

So, are there any riders of 6' 3" / 6' 4" who ride 6.6? Impressions?

I am 6'3 and will be riding a 6.6 (when I get back from Michigan this weekend). if you are concerned with the short cockpit, then why not get a longer stem and a setback post?

Well, the setback seatpost is no-go due to long seat tube of 6.6.
What? I don't understand why the set back seat post won't work with the long seat tube.

I would think you'd need to stretch the cockpit out a fair amount in order for a large to fit you. I'm a bit under 6 feet and the Large fits me well with a straight post and 90 mm stem. I could even go with a longer stem if I wanted a more XC feeling bike.
