170 on commutin bike, 170 on fixie, 175 on fixed road bike 2, 180 on road bike, 180 on SS mountain bike. No problems switching (I'm 1m97)
Whow! That's a pretty damn nice garage door!

When going from 172.5 to 175, then I would have to lower my saddle with 2,5mm? Is this correct?

Do you lower or adjust front-back distance?

Technically you need to slide the saddle forward and down when increasing the length of your cranks
