    XS EMD Crank Length?

    Building up an xtra small EMD for my wife - super beginner - about 5'3". taking part off of my AIR and guessing my 180mm cranks are going to be an issue. looks like chain reaction has both 170 and 165mm - should i go with the really short ones? my gut says the 170 are plenty short...

    Yeah Buddy. Your gut is not lying to you. 170 are perfect for mtb at her height. I'm 5'6 and my wife is 5'3 and we both roll on 170 cranks.
