Sizing Crank and Frame for Cyclocrosspsyclocrossed
Apr 14, 2001 4:08 AM

I am in the market for a cyclocross bike, I intend to race this season. I raced once last season on a mountain bike. I am 5-9 1\2 witha 32in inseam. The cyclocross frame sizes best suited for me appear to be either 52, 54, 55 cm. However, I need to determine the appropriate crank size that would be a good fit, based upon the size of the frame,and my measurements. Any suggestions?

use the same size. why change the crank size because it's a CX bike? I ride 175's on all my bikes. I like the consistency and see no reason to go smaller or larger for any of them.
