  • Doubt the cadence gain will be linear like that. Perhaps a better conclusion might be: the closer the optimal crank length, the higher peak cadence.
  • Shorter cranks, less leverage. That makes the gearing effectively taller.
  • Ever serrated chainring bolts won't stay put in the Power2Max spider (a known issue) and they keep spinning. J-B Weld holds the best but needs to be reapplied every few weeks (3-5 ring swaps per week on average).
