For an extreme long crank argument, check out this 1969 Bicycling article posted in the C&V forum:

For what itís worth, Iím in the short crank camp because my hips arenít very flexible. With 170s I have a hard time getting over the top of the pedal stroke when Iím on the drops because my hip canít close far enough. The natural tendency is to compensate by rolling the pelvis pack and bending with the spine rather than hip, which isnít good for the lower back.
