Will I have a ground clearance problem running 180mm length cranks on a 'cross bike?
Yes, depending on BB heightskateparks

Of course this is just my opinion, but my 180's are collecting dust and the 170's are on the bike. My BB is 11.6" with 700x30's.

It also depends on the course. Our NE courses have been very technical.
