    170mm vs 175mm cranks for instinct

    Hey my current 2019 instinct came with 170mm cranks. My 2 previous bikes had 175mm cranks so I feel more used to that. Anyone here riding 175mm on their 2018-2020 instincts? If so, any issues with pedal strikes?

    I personally wouldn't bother changing either way. I noticed the instinct (non-BC) DOES run a rather low BB in stock configuration. IMO there are few advantages to longer cranks for 90% of riding anyway, and the rather low BB would make me want to stick to 170 personally.

    What frame size are you running.

    I've switched all of my bikes to 170mm cranks. I see no drawbacks to them.

    On a medium I don't know why you'd want 175's. I dont think they'd help you at all.
