i usually ride 170mm, but i recently saw a 175mm set that was cheaper: What are the advantages and disadvantages of longer cranks?

Shorter cranks help with spins, and also allow foot clearance for people who run 4 pegs with short / tech chainstays.


Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

You won't notice 5 mm a ton. If you run 4 pegs though it might give you a little less clearance on your back foot.

Its like taking a tooth off the sprocket. You might have to relearn some things a little differently, like half cabs and fakie stuff, you have to backpedal faster and bends you knees more basically.
