Gear Talk / Tandem crankarm length
« on: February 29, 2004, 05:27:55 pm »
You would probably be fine with the 175/170 set up depending on how tall your daughter is.  I think the difference between 175's and 172.5's wouldn't be noticeable.  I've heard that one reason tandems run shorter rear cranks (other than for shorter stokers) is it balances out a captain who may have a faster spin than the stoker.  I changed from 175/170 to 165/165 (we're both short).  I noticed a pretty big difference going from 175-165.  Unfortunately, my wife feels like I'm spinning her too fast now that we have the same size cranks.

I've noticed these sections are pretty mountainous.  Can anyone tell me if they consist of repeated up and down climbing or a long climb that more less plateaus at the upper elevations.
