About 9 months ago I built a fixed gear conversion. For more cornering clearance, I put 165s on even though my "nice bike" has 170s. I thought it was going to be a compromise and I was going to have to live with it, but wouldn't like it. I have a 30" inseam.
Now I've found that I like the short cranks. I like the feeling of spinning with them. Part of that might be the differences in pedaling a fixed gear, but even when I flip my hub to the ss side, spinning feels great. In fact, when my two bikes are at approximately the same gear ratio, it seems easier to cruise with the shorter cranks.
So now I'm considering swapping out my cranks on my other bike to 165s and I'm just curious, anyone go to shorter cranks and then realize they prefer them?
