Recently switched the 175 cranks for 165 cranks. Much better. Now I can ride the Cruzbike hands free much easier. 165 is the shortest Tiagra crank I could find.

Just put on 175 mm Shimano Tiagra cranks on the QX100. Though I don't have a long X-seam (54 cm road bike I would ride), I think I am going to stick with the longer size based on my experience today.
