I'd really like to get a 26+ bike and it seems Jamis may be the only option? Although, after having a 27.5+... I'd like to get something with a decently high BB.... 13" or so and I think to keep the pedals from striking too much over obstacles...

BB drop is listed on their site, dunno what the actual BB height is.

The Dragonslayer 26+ would probably be my preference b/c it's got a taller stack height for some reason on paper.

I measured the BB height on my 2017 Komodo Sport 26plus at about 11.75 with a tape measure.

yeah, that seems pretty low... are you getting a lot of pedal strikes?

It's probably not an accurate measurment, The bike is a 15" frame. No issues with strikes at all. Probably just the way i measured it. I'll have to get it out on some pavement and get another measurment. My Dragon Slayer 27.5 plus set up with 29ers is only 12" so it might not be too far off.
