Pedal strike, yes.
it is not an off road machine, but it handles lots of trail conditions and the like fine. fire roads, most definetly.
LHT out of the box, complete, in 2007, for a 1000 bucks from QBP. it does ride like a tank, but it also lets you take both hands off the handlebars downhill fully loaded doing 45 MPH. even hands free on packed gravel doing 30. LHT for everything but the rough stuff.
