Just want to change my crank size down to 165 to better fit my leg size, 175 feels wrong, and everybody i talk to and have read says changing the drive to 165mm/25/9 will end up feeling the same as 175mm/27/9 So I saw these on Dan's lighter then my current cranks and in the chrome finish at 165mm so I was just wondering if anybody has ever used these before.

Take a look at the Stolen cranks... They might be a better crank for you. My Salt plus were sweet for the price.

didnt see any stolen cranks at 165mm, 170s might be okay, But never tried it before, 165's felt really good when I rode one it before.

I wouldn't get 8 Spline cranks. They're not that good. I would get some nice fit indents later on.

Mine are great. So they're not 48, whatever. My redline flights rule. No wobble either.

I dont know, 175 cranks just feel so strange for my legs, and theirs not many options in the size i really need. I'm thinking ill just get the rants or sakers as a temp option.

There are other cranks that come in 165, and also chrome.

Honestly don't skimp out on something like cranks, you get what you pay for in this case. You pay $60 for a set of cheap cranks now, you're gonna end up paying more later on once they break. Get something stronger that's gonna last instead of wasting money on a pair of cranks now, then another pair later on.
