J.
At 6'2 you are not "very" tall (sorry)...you will fit almost every medium and large frame especially for the purposes of fr and dh where you want a shorter bike anyways (you still want it long)

When people refer to too tall for a bike, its usually bordering on 6'5 to 6'7 and taller. Thats when you run into really long legs or arms.

do you have a preference as to cost? Your bikes in that list range from 2000cdn to 6000cdn. If you range is really that flexible you will have lots of options
