i don't believe this. unless the bottom brackets are different. shorter arm would be stronger

A good healthy weight for a 6 foot male is 140 to 180lb.
Don’t think they were designed for heavy riders. If your racing you should have a healthy lifestyle if you want to be competitive anyways.

but how is a shorter crank not as strong? there is more to it than simply the length of the arm because that just isn't possible

Does strength not increase with a shorter length? I'm not an engineer or anything...oh wait...

Maybe there was an anorexia outbreak at the time when they wrote the manual.

I’m sure this has something to do with it.

I do believe it was determined the O.P. was a P.O.S.


Just because I'm to big to ride it doesn't mean I'm not going to build it or buy it.

Lol I do believe there are different spindle lengths for PMC bmx and mtb. Good knowledge to keep going. Either way use spacers as needed.  Nothing really different than new cranks out the box.


It's yours. Do what you want with it smile
