Salsa Las Cruces Geometry (Crankarms length)
Dear All, need your help and comments here.....
I'm interested into cyclocross and manage to bring home Salsa Las Cruces. I guess it's nice paintjob made me choose this one over others
And I'm 5' 7" and choose 52cm frame size.
I've just installed longer crankarms (175mm from previously 170mm) on it and surprised that my shoes hit frontwheel when turning left/rightl. Pls see photos. I try to install 172,5mm just on right side, see if this still happened. Yup, my shoes still hit frontwheel.
Here's my questions:
- Anybody has the same experience? On Salsa or other brands?
- Should I limited myself with shorter crankarms on cyclocross bike. I guess should be no limitation to choose crankarms length. No?
- I'm coming from mtb world, then I compare my mtb with more than 110cm wheelbase, while this CX much shorter with 100cm.
Thanks a bunch
