170mm or 175mm cranks-does it matter
Right i've just found a bargain crankset which has 175mm cranks which is what i've always had as they come as standard...  but now i've found an even better bargain on a set of 170mm cranks...

Does the 5mm make a difference?  I guess it must do..

Any thoughts...

Potentially spin a bit quicker with the 170's but less leverage so less power, also I would stick to 175 if you are a taller person
Yeah i think for MTB i'll go for the 175mm... its just that the others were this years with ceramic bearings...   ummm   decision made before i miss the deal...
