This year I finally had to say goodbye to my Stache because I realized I'm never going to solve my heel clearance issues with that bike. It's never going to be rideable comfortable at mach chicken on fast stuff because of my heel/ankle slamming in to the bike over stuff. I have huge feet which is why my ankles end up coming in contact with bike back there sometimes. The problem was compounded with an injury which made me adjust my foot position slightly this spring, and I fought it all year, but even before it was never awesome. Certain bikes I jump on due to chainstay shape, it's always going to be a problem. Now, the main problem with the Stache was the elevated chainstay and the part where it clears 29x3 tires, but it's happened on other rides too.  I can only think more boost is going to make things worse on bikes. When my cranks are level, my back foot is always going to make it way closer to the back of the bike than most riders.
