Different crank length changes the knee angle. Make sure you adjust the fit accordingly.


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
