question for fixed folder owners/riders
recently saw some photos of fixed gear folding bikes, and i am intrigued. some of the builds look really simple and clean. just a question, though: since the bb is lower on a folder (smaller wheels), do you encounter problems with pedal strike? i ride my bianchi san jose fixed with 172.5 cranks and i occasionally strike my pedal during corners (they were during moderate but not aggressive corners at maybe 10mph). thinking about doing a conversion with a folder but this was my first concern.
