New to Trike Recumbents and I'm a long time Roadie/Cross/MTB'r with TONs of parts. My first question is:

Crank Arm Length-??? I ride 175mm and my Catrike comes with 165s. I'd like to transfer my Dura Ace over.

Thoughts???

Spinning on a recumbent is more difficult than a df(diamond frame). If you prefer to spin, but find it difficult, use the 165s. If you like the rpm you get with the 175, have fun with them.
