    Question for Devinci Troy owners

    I'm loving this bike but feel the BB is a bit low and find my pedals smashing into things. That said I'm riding with the lower BB setting but don't want the fork to be less slack by changing the setting.

    So if I raise the BB could I use an angleset to keep the fork angled as is? Or would I just lower the BB doing this.

    Probably a stupid question but have to ask.

    Could lengthen the fork to get back some head tube angle

    I have ridden hi pos and low and have found the bike handles very good in both so i left it in the hi pos less pedal strikes.

    Get Shorter cranks? I too was striking my pedals and enjoy the low setting... But these bikes come with much longer cranks than I usually buy for myself... And... Finesse that stuff and learn to not hit your pedals as much. If I can do it you can too!

    I ride in the high position and the bike rides great. You could try high position to see how it goes. Then if you don't like it try the other options mentioned above.

    I just switched to the high position to see the effect on pedal strikes. I get fewer strikes and I can't tell the difference in head tube angle. Turning feels maybe very slightly different but not worse. Give it a try. Or get shorter cranks. But changing to high position is free.

    Yeah, the high position and a switch to low profile pedals made a big difference for me.

    high setting worked for me, I usually run 170 cranks but it has been fine with 175
    I've been inside too long.
