Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

I don't think it runs large in the largest size for your height. I am 6'5 and a local shop had the largest size in stock- it was a good fit, but not quite the stack height or reach I wanted.

I would assume your cycling inseam is more than what you list, if you are 6'4. If that is your cycling inseam, then perhaps the bike is wonky for you as you have short legs and a long torso for that height.
I'm probably wrong. I'm speaking of my pant inseam. I'll have to ask my fitter what my cycling inseam is when I go back which is what I should be doing rather than posting here . Yeah it's an XL.
