Buying a 17" Jamis Coda Sport and ordering it with mountain gears. http://www.jamisbikes.com/usa/thebik...codasport.html
I have a 29" inseam. According to most sites I consulted, it seems like I would do better with a 165 mm crank. Current crank is FSA Dyna Drive Triple, 48/36/26T. I will be changing that to 22/32/44. The bottom bracket is an FSA sealed cartridge 68 x 110mm. Cassette will be 11-34.
1. A 170mm crank is standard on this bike. How important is it that I change it to 165mm?
2. Is anyone able to find a 22/32/44 crank that would work with this bike? I did some research but I don't understand all the specs well enough. Quality should be equivalent to the FSA Dyna Drive. Hopefully discounted---the LBS is willing to do an even swap, but not if they incur a loss.
Thanks very much for your help!
