Anybody taken the 27.5 x 2.8's down to 2.6 width? Which did you prefer? The bike is set up well with stock 2.8 my concern is with the 175 crank arms and the NE chunk that I'm riding the smaller tire and subsequent height loss will be problematic.

The BB height of the Genius is precisely average. Combine the slightly long cranks with the smaller tires and it's getting a bit low. Not unreasonably low, but low.

Three things will greatly increase your ground clearance:

1. Use your shock's climb mode frequently.
2. Increase your shock's low-speed compression damping.
3. Remove volume reducers from your shock and increase the pressure.
