    It will be fine. I was running 172.5 cranks on my Crosscheck. They have higher bottom brackets than road bikes. You will need to either need a shorter spindled bottom bracket or you may try to put...

    It's actually a type 3 viscount aluminum fork which most Viscount enthusiasts say are pretty safe. I'll be keeping an eye on it, but it shouldn't be worse than a lot of carbon forks.

    Looks like they would work. Make sure the axle runs smooth and there aren't any broken spokes. You may need to true them, but that's not a big deal.

    Increase the gearing. You'll get more of a workout in less time. The cheapest way to do it is to change the rear cog. I don't know if you would feel much of a difference at 16, so you may want to try...
