Would it be a bad idea to purchase a longer shock with the same travel to raise my bb. Im always banging my pedals on rocks climbing technical trials and it kills your momentum. I do not not want to increase my rear travel since the shock has hte same travel i just would like to lower the bb a bit. My bike has 1 inch clearance for a longer shock.
If not is there another way to reduce banging the pedals on rocks. I think my cranks are already 170 and not 175mm. When i set the preload high i hit the rocks a lot less but then its basicly inactive. It barely sags when i sit on it.
Thanks for your help.
