Problem is it's hard to adjust pedal stroke when climbing a hill. You need to keep pedaling to keep moving. When I do get the occasional pedal strike, it's when climbing a rocky or rooty section of trail, not when it's level, semi level, downhill or machine built smooth uphill.

The specialized FSR 6fattie has 331 mm BB height unloaded. Now decrease that by the amount the shock sags and how much the tires compress and POOF...the FSR 6F is one of the bikes that suffers badly from pedal strikes. It's been well documented on MTBR.com
