Well, the smaller ones tend to be slightly smaller. The larger ones, on the other hand, are larger.

Longer cranks give you more leverage but you can smack them on stuff easier.

i suppose the confusion comes from those freaky 2-piece ones that all the roadies and mtbers have, but still.

you should point at their wheels and go "why are your pedals so big?"
