Okay, i have almost decided on getting the demolition rig cranks.
I have done heaps of research but would like your opinions.

They have a 24mm spindle which means when i run my sprocket it will have no tophat spacer as the bore is 24mm almost. Will this create any problems or is it fine?

Also someone on one of my last posts said to use only the bottom bracket that comes with 24mm cranks? once these wear out couldn't i just swap them out to say eclat as they have 24mm bottom bracket.

The main one is that they are 175mm, i am almost 6'2 and i have tried really short cranks which i believe were 152mm on someones bike and it felt horrible. I may have tried other sized cranks without knowing as i ride my friends bike's sometimes. My style of riding is street/techy and i have a coaster, at the same time i ride alot of park and jump boxes, hips, airs, ect and i use my bike for transportation. Should i go for the 175's because of all this? In Australia which is where i live i can only see maybe 3 or so different cranks that come in 170mm and i would have to spend an extra 80 dollars or so for the 5mm reduction.

The demolition rigs have a lifetime warranty on cracking the arms and spindle but not with twisting them.

Sorry for the long post!
Cheers smile

running no spacer is fine just make sure your sprocket is a 24mm or 15/16th bore.

You can run any 24mm BB with any 24mm Cranks, ive had the 24mm Fit cranks since they came out and im currently running the Kink 24mm BB.

175mm is a normal crank size and thats what id recommend to a newer rider. if you run 4 pegs or plan to maybe invest in some 170mm's

Cheers for the reply. I have always had 175's and im not new i just tend to overthink everything hahah.
I dont plan on running 4 pegs, i have put them on before and tried to like but i don't think its for me.

Well I'm 6' and wouldn't run cranks that short. I wouldn't ride a frame shorter than 21". It's personal preference, but height of a rider will have a massive affect on their preference.
The bike of someone 5' will feel like arse to someone 6'

I want to try running 165 mm cranks but I run a 30-9 ratio and pedaling would become way harder, especially on hills (I currently run 175's).
