|Why? I make more power with them. My trainer measures watts and All Things Being Equal, I make more power with 175s. My pedaling style can be described as "pushing big gears", but if I could pedal like Lance, I might be better with 170s.|
|is the difference important??||el_pato|

|I mean really, it's only a difference in length of about this - dash mark. I've ridden both and can't notice a difference. I see more 172.5 cause my friends are shorter than me.
Why do they make them in such small increments anyway?
