Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

210 mm crank?

so i'm in the process of converting my hybrid into a single speed. i was measuring my crank and realized it is a 210 mm crank. that's pretty ridiculously long isn't it? what do i do? i was planning on just buying another crank aroun the 165-170mm range.

You measure it properly.
