big cheap cranks
My bike came with short cranks and I need some 185-190s. What would be a good source for some cheap cranks in this size range?
Used...like most big and tall rider stuff, it comes with a price
Surly Mr. Whirly is probably your cheapest 185mm new option
Or bmx cranks.
Once you crest over the standard 175mm cranks there is minimal chance of keeping things "cheap" Basically 175 and 180mm are the industry standard. Anything outside of that is small volume or even custom.
Profile makes some pretty rediculous long crank arms. Zinn (follow the banner add at the top of the page) also goes out on a limb. There are others.
Out of curiosity, why do you feel compelled to run that long of cranks? I am 6'3" and have dabbled in cranks up to 185mm, but always come back to 175mm to stay standard.
