There are certain states in the US that allow an "Idaho stop" for cyclists. I think its a happy medium for safety and efficiency.

The crank arm lengths on my bikes vary from 165 to 180mm. I notice the difference for the first couple of miles, then forget about it. I wouldn’t bother changing them out, not that big of deal. Tim

I bought this frame on eBay along with some of the original parts. I installed some mt60/m730 parts on a set of bosco bullmoose bars. I really enjoy the way this thing rides. Thanks for looking 👍
