great bike! how come you use 165mm long cranks?
Short torso, long legs. I wanted to have a longer saddle height. When I'm tucked in an aero position on flats or descends, my knees hit my chest on 172.5mm cranks.
How do you feel about accelerations? i assume you are a more of a spinner than a grinder?
I honestly didn't look at the data to see if my cadence averages went up. I'm definitely in between. In a 3 hour race or hard ride my cadence ends up being 88-90. I have friends who go 100rpm. I'll have a heart attack if I attempt that.

They do feel easier to spin but the differences aren't that huge. I do remember it taking couple of days to get used to. After all it IS harder to turn the pedals because you have less leverage. Essentially it's like changing a cassette. Your lowest gear feels harder for the same exact setup.

But like I mentioned. My motivation was bike fit and it definitely sold that problem.
thanks for the reply :beerchug:
