    Crank length on Rush 1000?

    Hi,

    A car ran over my Rush 1000 and bent the right crank arm (amongst other things). When looking for a replacement set for the original FSA Afterburner I found that it comes in two lengths (170 and 175 mm). Does anyone one know which length came OEM with this bike (2006 model)? Cannondale does not specify that in their website...

    Adittionally, does anyone have a recommendation for either length? With the original cranks I often hit rocks etc. but I think more due to the low BB height on the Rush frame.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    should be written on the arms, check the backs and bottoms
    or you could measure them 170mm = 6.69" 175= 6.89 roughly

    The Rush has a low bb height, so maybe try the 170mm cranks. The c-dale rep left one at my bubbies bike store, the full carbon model.....Wow what a badass bike. Insane on nice single track, but because of the bb height i had problems in the rough stuff and log jumbs.
    Keep in mind though, this is why the bike handles so good...A little give and take.

    Thank you for the replies. I found the length (175mm). I think I'll stay w/ this length.
