    Manufacturer that makes 172.5cm crank arms

    Hi Everyone
    Does anyone know of a company that manufactures 172.5cm crank arms?
    In case you're wondering what the requirement is, it's to fix a leg length discrepancy.

    You're right, but only in the XTR, which is out of my price range.
    Sorry, I should have been more specific, I'm looking for something in the Deore LX range.
    I also checked out Truvativ and they also have it but only in the high-end products.

    My FSA Gossamer crank arms are 172.5mm. Not a MTB crank, but maybe they have other offerings in that size. EDIT - I checked their site and didn't see any in the MTB range.

    My guess is they are easy to find on Road cranks, but not MTB.

    Yeah, I'm thinking the same.

    Lots of road cranksets come with 172.5 as a standard option..... maybe look for something with relatively small gears (for a road bike) and look for a CX style crank for more durability?

    Another option would be to get the spider/crankarms for a road set with an external BB (more stiffness) and use mountain sized rings on it.....

    CX style crank? I'm not familiar, what manufacturer makes that style?
