    Cranks on boosted nimble

    Ok so Iím putting together a parts list for my new nimble. Building it with 27.5 2.8 tires. And single speed. So Iím leaning towards another set of the bros cranks. I have them on my epo balance and riot and have been very happy. But this one being single speed Iím thinking of going to 175 arms but concerned with pedal strikes so looking for feed back on those that have 175mm cranks on the new nimble with plus tires

    I'm on a Boost N9, B+ with 2.8's. Running SS with a DVO fork at 130mm. No problems with pedal strikes.

    I did some rough measuring comparing my previous 29" wheels and 100mm fork and it seems the BB height would be the same if not a tad higher. If you're running a 130-140mm fork minimum you should be fine.
