    What year do you have? I'm pretty sure the stock crank arms are 165.

    It's 170 on an '01 Pista. I wish it was 165.

    Whoops. I didn't check my writing before I pressed enter. I'm thinking of buying a new crankset and bb for my pista. Would it best if I just stayed with the stock size lengths?
    My other question what is the Bottom Bracket size on the 09 pista.

    My bike came with 165's and I swaped them out for 170 Omnium's, and my toe's touch my tyres.

    Is there a disadvantage of getting 165mm arms? or higher than 170mm?
