Posted a while back.. haven't decided on 160 or 165s.. but I have some money so I am hoping to give some shorter cranks a try. I have never had a very good pair of cranks.. what do you guys recommend? I have money but I certainly want the best deal I can get too.. profiles.. Odyssey.. fit?

Does it say when they'll be getting them in? if you dont want to wait look at odyssey, tibias, or the stranger cranks.

I have the 165 mm profiles and i like them. The 24mm indents look badass too, only reason i didnt get those was i had just bought a 19mm SD sprocket and i didnt want to buy another. WTP royals are also a good option and they're priced well.

Yeah I think I'm gonna go with the Indents. I just bought this rear rim off a guy from here because I was running a 14 tooth sprocket. And the price was right. Doesn't really match my bike.. I was kicking around the idea of getting some red cranks and maybe a stem.. idk if I wanna start that whole process though.. what do you guys think.. red cranks or stick to black.. maybe run a red sprocket if anything in the future. Or just say f it and run it like it is..

I'd say stick with black, get a silver sprocket, and get red spokes front and rear.

Just ordered the 24mm Indents. Went with 170mm. Will pretty much any sprocket work and do they come with everything you need to install them?

These are my first set of good cranks. I have unsealed Poverties now.. should be a step up..

How short is your chainstay? 160 is so short - less torque when pedaling. I have 13 inch cs 4 pegs and 180 cranks. I love the long cranks maybe it's all in my head but it's easier to balance mannies. Although I have rode 175 and 170s personally I'm digging my 180s but I personally wouldn't go lower that 170
