Would you have pedal strike issues if you put 150mm cranks on your current setup? If so then switching to a 29" wheel won't help much in that regard. Where it would help is you end up with a lighter, faster rolling, and more responsive wheel. A faster rolling tire can make a difference (my crank length change for winter has more to do with tire choice rather than riding through snow.)

Is there any way to simply swap out the sprockets for a lower gear?
Actually I'm riding a Vee tire Speedster at 15-20 PSI... a fast rolling choice. I could try to go tubeless!
