Damned if we do, damned if we don't, I guess. Where "do" = "women complaining about toe overlap". Haha. But more seriously, this is the first thread that's made me want to try shorter cranks; I'm 5'5.5" and short-legged (29" inseam men's jeans are about an inch too long), and have been fine on 170-175mm cranks, but am a poor climber and if I could get a few percent of speed from different cranks I'd take it. Perhaps I'll pick up a cheap set of shorter ones and give them a spin on a ride I don't need for PBP.
