This is a what crank length for a lady question?
My lady is 5'4" and I'm going to build up a 14" 456 frame for her....it made sense because I have a Revelation fork from another 456 going spare. I know the On One website had a section giving different sized customers' set ups so I'll give that a look first but I don't remember seeing anything there on crank lengths. A search on the web has failed to give me any clues as to appropriate crank sizes for given sizes of person.
She is currently riding a Scott £500/600 WSD hardtail. I was surprised to find the cranks on that are an ordinary 175. There again I seem to remember reading that women have proportionately longer legs. If 175 is going to be correct I'll gladly go with that because I have a spare XT Hollowtech crank I can use.
Can anyone give informed input...... or point me at a useful source of info on the subject.
Any input on best riser bars for women....best saddles for women... would also be appreciated.
