    Does anybody here use cranks < than 165mm?

    I notice that Bulletproof make cranks as short as 140mm Wonder what that's like?

    There is some track racer on Youtube that uses 155mm. What would be the benefit?

    initially i switched to 165s to avoid pedal strikes. but a quick google search lead me to these, which may help you make your decision:
