    Raceface Aeffect Cranks - 170mm

    Does anyone know if the new version of the Raceface Aeffect cranks in 170mm length are true 170mm arms? To clarify, are there separate crank arms for each lendth, and not just one arm length with the pedal hole drilling dictating the length. Make sense?

    As far as I know nobody makes crank arms that way. One arm with the pedal hole drilled at different lengths. Personally, I own RF Aeffect 170s, and 165s. They are those lengths. I've also owned 175s, and they are 175.

    My question stemmed from the fact that some older (cheap Truvativ) cranks we’re drilled like that. And I thought that i read somewhere that the 170mm length of Aeffects were not compatible with Raceface Cranks Boots, leading me to be suspicious...

    There are two sizes of boots, IIRC. The small size fits the Aeffect cranks. I have them on the 170s and 165s.
