Breezer bikes

I'm around the clydesdale weight range but mostly because of height, I'm 6'4. I'm looking at picking up an XL Breezer Uptown for commuting purposes. It seems to be one of the few bikes built with an internal hub that is ready for commuting out of the box. Are there any clydesdales who ride Breezers out there that can tell me how it has been for them?

How About Jamis?

I own a couple Uptown 8's, but I'm only 5'-10" and think the 26" wheels are just barely tall enough for myself. If I were you, I'd seriously consider the 700x32c Jamis Commuter 3.
