I've just been offered a sweet deal on a 2014 stumpjumper comp ht and I am not really sure what size I should order. I'm 6'3" and have been told I need an XL but I have some pretty long legs and I don't know if that would change the size I need. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Long legs do make a difference, but your torso will make more of a difference. You can raise the seat post, but you can't shorten a top tube. Make sure the Top tube length is right, because if you aren't in the right position there, it can make your experience very painful.
I would get your LBS to fit you and ride both sizes and that should help you decide.
An XL, without seeing you in person, is exactly what i would recommend. But I would ride them and let the fit specialist at your shop help out too.

Thanks for the advice. The bike shop sized me at an XL as well. I just ordered the bike, I can't wait to ride it.

Congrats!
I was going to say that I'm 5'10" and ride a Medium (17"), which can accomodate up to 6', I believe. Using Spesh's sizing, I would have guessed XL as well.. Glad you got fitted and ordered up!
