I am pretty short (5' 4") with short legs and am currently using a crankset with 175mm crankarm which i found a little too long for me. ie. knee bending a bit too much.
The Decore MTB crankset on my hybrid with 48-36-26T gives me the good gear ratio for me for now, I am looking to upgrade to a different crankset with shorter arms, ideally with similar gear ratio.
My first question is, most budget crankset only offer 170mm as the shortest crankarm. Is the 5mm going to make a noticeable difference to me?
My second option might be to go for a 165mm road crank. My second question for that is can I replace a MTB crankset with Road triple crankset? it's hard to find MTB crank in the taller 48T gearing
