OK, not sure if I get it correctly...

Extra 20-25rpm per 10mm shorter crankarm? This is A LOT. That would mean that between 165 and 170mm crankarms length would be about 10-12rpm difference?

This is where I am confused. You increased in cadence AND gear ratio simultaneously? Or that your absolute speed stays the same with lower ratio, shorter crankarms and higher cadence? I believe the second, just want to be sure.

What is a reason for this? Higher cadence makes more vibrations than smashing?
