Checked out a 20in. wheel for the front today, BIG problem - i only get about 1 inch of pedal clearance of dropping that low - but the bike's geometry is correct! With a 20in. wheel, i can use one of the pedals as a kickstand,
So anyway, i'm thinking of going from 165mm to 150mm cranks to get me 1/2 inch more pedal clearance, ...
No, don't do it. Wear your pedal strike as a badge of nuttiness.
Free kickstand , keeps unskilled newbs off, etc.

Works fine on the street/light off-road..
On a side note.
When you get a chance, can you grab me overall axle length?
I'll be using Dogman clamping dropouts. So no nuts or torque arms to worry about.
But I still need 190mm ish to make it work on "Strong".
