Entire bike or F&F will do..............
Anytime you have that specific of a target, I think you are best off with ebay. XXL size makes it harder.

When I find deals, I am both agnostic on size and agnostic on model and brand. I do avoid the dept store stuff, along with hybrids and mtbs. Last bikes picked up: a Specialized Cross bike, a Centurion, a Takara, a Schwinn, a Fuji, and a Nishiki. None were my size.

When I wanted something specific, like the Paramount Series 70 mtb, in a 15 inch size that I recently picked up for my wife, I reverted to ebay (I wanted either a 1992 series 70 or a 1992 series 90). Ditto the 1992 Series 7, in a 56cm size that I picked up for myself. Of course, I paid more than I usually do. But the bikes that don't fit fund the bikes that do fit.
