It sounds like a Widespread Panic setlist but it's not. Yesterday, Will and I set off in kayaks in pursuit of the WyCo headwaters. We found it and a whole lot more. Did you know that when ducks take off they run across the water?
Problem solved. The Curtlo MTB and I have only one disagreement: BB height.
The Curtlo is about 3/4" lower than the Chester was and I've been chucking, chipping, and catching rocks and roots with my pedals. I've been attentive about pedal position but I was still catching a few. Before I rode yesterday I swapped out my 175mm cranks w/ some 170's. Voila. It was just enough extra clearance to give me the clearance I needed. It's not much, but apparently it's enough. I haven't noticed the decreased leverage b/c I'm still nursing a broken toe. So yeah, add 170mm cranks to the list of freakshow items on this thing. I don't care. I'm just doing what works.
