They steepen the seat tube to fit fatter tires and suspension travel with the bigger wheels and the same wheelbase compared to a 26. That puts more weight on the front end which can be a good thing...

Yeah definitely try it.

Chemical toe warmers are always a good last resort.

You might be able to find another 1 1/8" threaded headset...
