I just bought a used '89 Serotta w/ a Campy Record C crank set.I am 6' and the crank arms are 170's.Do people my height ride w/ 170mm crank arms?The cranks are beautiful and I would like to use them.

usually people of your size opt for 172.5 or 175mm, however there's nothing wrong with using shorter cranks. I ride 170 and 175, and diff is hardly noticable. Track riders historically use shorter 165mm cranks to clear high banks, and many of them're over 6'.
