175mm cranks on Swift Folder

I looked at the Swift Folder spec sheet and saw that all sizes of the Swift comes with 170mm crank arms.
I have always run 175mm crank arms on all of my bikes. Is there any reason that a longer crank arm cannot be used on the Swift? Is there a problem with ground clearance or clearance at the seat stays or the chain stays? Please enlighten me!

I have 175 mm crank arms on my Xootr (Campagnolo Centaur, double chainring but no front derailleur).
No problem.
