Is the bottom bracket on a 03 Hardrock lower than other bikes? I’m constantly clipping my pedals on rocks, roots and stuff on the sides of the trail while my riding buddies all clear the obstacles that I hit. Is there a way to get better pedal clearance, by perhaps fitting shorter cranks?
Cheers

Shorter cranks will give you less leverage, it's probably not a good idea unless you're real short. Maybe you should learn to pedal in rhythm with your obstacles so your pedal is up when you pass over something. Or learn to ratchet-pedal over obstacles. FWIW, I smack the pedals of my epic all the time, but I think that's because of suspension sag.
