Check out this bike build (need 170 cranks)

Postby kuan » Sun Jul 26, 2009 8:33 am

New "cross" bike for Matt Liebsch. Got a frame off a bikelove friend. Built entirely out of parts from my garage. It has 175mm crankarms though so if anyone has a 170mm crankset and doesn't need it please consider donating it to this bike. I can use square taper or GXP style 2 piece crankset.

"Cross" term used loosely I take it.

heh yeah... it has flat bars on it right now. Running an Ultegra 12-25 rear cassette with a Deore LX RD and Deore shifters. V-brakes up front and cantilevers in the back, but I couldn't find a linear pull brake lever so it's all business in the front party in the rear now.

Yeah, looks like it's a "cross" of about 5 different bikes, sort of a Frankenbike. 8)

170mm? Even Stubby Legged Lance rolls 175's at high cadence!

Proportionate cranks, worth getting used to ;-)

What about 172.5? Matt's only like 5' 9" and rides a 54cm.
