Nice! I hope Shimano follows along with various lengths. 160mm would be the one I'm most interested in.

I got 160mm Miranda Delta cranks last year for my Trek Powerfly (Bosch). Direct from Miranda (Europe) in less than a week & less than $100 total.

Their Delta SH cranks are for Shimano E8000.



My short legs & new knee really like the shorter cranks. Definitely less pedal strikes too. YEA!

I bought the 165’s and don’t dare going shorter. I have long legs and have been on 175’s forever. The 165’s feel about perfect for me. My Focus came with 170’s.

When you're just pedaling for show anyways, who cares how long your crankarms are?

Since pedaling is the switch/throttle to turn the motor on, it's awkward to try to stutter through tech stuff like you can on a bike. So, pedal strikes galore. One area where a throttle is better IMO.

Maybe manufacturers will add in a "boost" button to let you do just that at some point?

Video from someone who I believe posts here on occasion but anyways he has installed 152mm cranks on his Levo and gives his thoughts.
