Salsa Fargo - Different Length Crank-arms (Options)

I have a current model Salsa Fargo, size large, and it comes with a Truvativ Stylo 6K DUB, 32t in 175mm.

I'm used to shorter cranks and want to get 165mm crank-arms.

Can I just replace the crank-arms? Or with this style on crankset is it fixed to the chain ring?

Iím not sure how to shop online for a replacement, in terms of specs. Also, I want to pay under $200 Canadian.

My shop is sold out for at least a month if not longer, so I thought I would see whatís available online.

I don't think you are going to save much money just getting cranks alone. But if they are the same crank model and they don't come with a ring, then you probably can swap the ring.

If you don't get the same cranks you are going to have to know if they will work with that BB or whether they have a BB that will fit your bike's BB shell.

Yep, the entire crankset is only $113 list so don't waste time looking for arms only. SRAM shows a 165 option for that crank but it may be hard to find. 170 seems readily available. Save the stock crank. If you decide to sell the bike in the future, the chances of someone else wanting a size L with 165mm cranks will be slim to none.
