Do Campagnolo make their latest (10 speed) cranksets in size 165? If not,
what are my options if I choose to use 165 cranks for an otherwise 10speed
Campy drivetrain?

Thanks,
Chuck

No, TA makes a really nice road double and triple in 165mm...call me.

It pains me to say it, but that S company makes its 10 speed double and
triple cranksets in its two highest priced groups in 165 mm length.

Astute of them to provide children's sizes, since child riders are
unlikely to overtax their cranks structurally. They should offer their
cranks at a price that would be more attractive to the kid's bike
market, though.

If I choose to run the 10 speed Shimano 165 cranks, what chain should I use?
Campy or Shimano?

Fortunately, you can use absolutely any crank with otherwise Campy
components.

Heh. I'm over 6' tall, definitely not a kid, and I *like* 165 mm cranks.

I like them too, in applications where longer cranks hit the ground.

Any 10s chain, with a 10s cogset-shimano, Campag(now 5.9mm) or
Wipperman, all will be fine.
