quick poll: What is your inseam and crank length??(27 posts)

quick poll: What is your inseam and crank length??reklar
Jun 19, 2003 4:03 AM
My inseam is 33.5", I'm running 175s, but fit kit is claiming I ought to be running 172.5s...I know this is sort of a religious issue, but just wanted to get a feel for what folks are riding...

I have a 35.25 inseam and run 175mm cranks on two of my bikes and 172.5 on the other two.

I don't know if I can really tell the difference...

I tried 170 for almost a year. While I like the 170mm and can spin at higher RPMs more smoothly, I prefer the 172.5mm simply because I feel like I can apply more power when working hills. Completely subjective, non-scientific, personal preference.

My Pubic bone height, NOT inseam, is 94cm and my crank length is 175mm. And I'm a Libra.

maybe I'm obtuse or insenstive, but I have yet to be able to perceive ANY difference between the two. I mean, it is a whopping (!) 0.098" length variance, how much difference could it make?!? YMMV.
kind of personal question...33. 175 on all bikes.wspokes
