The tendency to pedal strike also depends on the suspension. A Tall Boy with a 330mm BB height and 110mm travel is different from a FSR 6 Fattie with 135mm travel and 330mm BB height and a well deserved reputation for pedal strikes. The FSR sits lower in it's travel by 1-1.5cm compared to the lower travel VPP design of the Tall Boy. They both suffer from the additional sad of plus tires, but the Tall Boy is not out-of-bounds for most types of riding.
