    200mm crank ?s 38inch inseam am I really a candidate

    I also found that a 122,5 spindle gives a good chainline on the 200mm IRD cranks.
    Running 1x10 with the middle chainring only.

    I haven't done any tests as such, but the new cranks feel "right".
    With a 42" inseam, they should..

    I can certainly notice a difference going up - climbs where I used to drop onto the inner I can now make on the middle chainring. Along the flats I would say that there is less of a noticeable difference - hard to tell.

    Is it worth going to 200's? I would say yes if you do a lot of climbing and can afford the decreased ground clearance... although you do get an equivalent increase in bar height.

    The IRD's are nicely polished but the casting is a bit rough in places. I also had to bend the chainring bolt tabs to get the rings to run flat. They're the cheapest way to try extra long cranks - if you already have chainrings to fit.

    Thanks for all the help, all the problems went away after I went to high quality 180mm cranks. My stride got all straightend out and my speed went up and I spin more. The stock cranks were flexing and messing me up.

    I need another bike for Mountain biking on the trail. I built this for a around town do it all beater and it is great but I need something in a 29 or 650 to take off road.

    I should by the 200mm, they would work great on my 26 XXl with 29's and 40 CM tires. It turned out real good and worth building.
