As above, Shimano M760 Hollowtech chainset with 170mm crank arms. There is cosmetic scratching and wear to both the arms and middle/outer ring but functionally they are fine.

£40 posted.

Hope stainless steel external bottom bracket in silver, only six months old and as smooth as the day it was new,

£40 posted.

Paypal as gift please.

Trevor.

I've always used 175mm crank arms, but have shortish legs and I'm wondering if I would notice any difference running 170mm? Does that 5mm make a huge difference?

Down here in tropical Cumbria we run thin socks, unlike our 'north of the border' brethren, with your wool clad pinkies. :wink:

Well worth a try if you're shortish of leg- 10mm difference between top & bottom of the stroke could stop you having to either bend your knee past 90' at the top (very bad) or over-stretch at the bottom (ditto!). Can smooth out your peddling and reduce toe-overlap on the front wheel too 8)

Commission by PP GIFT please... :lol:
