    Smuggler spec---cranks/boost

    From the web site it looks like all sizes have 170 cranks-----many of us taller folks may be on 175's------wonder the affect

    The web site shows boost in the rear but no data on the fork---I hope this is not boost only on one end like the YT Jeffsey-----makes future wheel changes an issue

    Frame and fork are boost. 170mm cranks are specced I think because of the low BB. You can do 175, but might have a few more pedal strikes. I've ridden most of their last few models with both crank lengths and can't really tell a difference in pedaling. (and I'm 6' 2" plus)
