I have the S6, so low BB is an even bigger problem than on shorter frames. At the same time, with that long front center, there is no way I would ever run it in high/short chainstay setting. I finally got fed up with smacking the bashguard (not just the pedals. Those too, and at 6’5” with long legs, 170 is pretty short already). Easy fix: Install mullet link (but keep 29er rear wheel in there) Install crown racer spacer: [](°-angle-spacer-tapered-forks For USD 75.00 and an hour of easy home mechanics, I raised the bb about 12 mm from the low setting it was at before. Rode a rocky, techy flat/climbing trail and it worked great. The bike always climbed great, but I just couldn’t pedal any where that wasn’t smooth, and the bashguard was getting hammered, making me gun shy of rocks that stick up.
