I'm ordering parts for a new cycloss build. I'm 5'5'' tall and use a 172.5 crank on my road bikes.
What length cranks should I use on a cycloss build?

I'm 5'7" with short legs. I use 170mm on the mountain bikes and road racer but I like the better ground and front tire clearance offered by the 167.5mm cranks on my cross and touring bikes. When I switch to the other bikes, I find I notice when my cadence has dropped sooner too.
