Was just wondering got a set of FC-M730 cranks with a length of 180 mm. Is there so much difference in riding with longer or shorter cranks? Personally i don't know the difference. And how many lengths are there (i know 170-175-180)?

you can get 165s for shortarses

road stuff tends to come in more lengths because smooth spinning is more important there. you get 172.5 and 177.5 infill lengths.

Re:

As a 6'+ ex roadie, I tend to go for longer cranks. Dont seem to ground out on my mtb's. I have three sets of 180s
Try it out, see what happens. But lower you saddle 5mm to compensate.
