    29er Crank length question

    I have 3 26" bikes around the house and all 3 came stock with 170mm crank arms. My 29er came stock with 175mm. I was just wondering if 170 is the standard for 26" and 175 for 29"?

    How old are the 26" bikes?
    I seem to think 170 used to be the standard and then 175 became the standard.
    I like 180's on my 29ers.

    Crank size is more dependent on frame size, just like stem length.

    Pick any model, then read the specs for a small vs a large.
