A lot of downhillers, 4x and slalom racers run shorter cranks to have more height clearence. I wouldn't recommend going to a shorter crank length unless you are going to get into some form of racing.
For general riding, 175's are recommended. Unless you are REALLY tall or REALLY short. At 6'0" I'd stick with 175's.
