Let stalk about 29er bikes for very tall people

I'm in the market for a 29er MTB and I'm 6'6". Not necessarily heavy (185lbs). What is out there? I ride a 70cm custom road bike. What is the biggest frame size available for a mountain bike? 23"? who makes a frame this big?

Specialized makes XXL 29er frames. There are probably a few others that I'm not aware of. Tons of custom builders out there too.
