  2. For MUni, I would recommend what I was sold - 170mm cranks.
    This will help you with climbing and rolling over obsticles.

    Using shorter cranks may give you some speed and may even be
    more durable - but your off-road ability will suffer (unless
    your are just riding flat hardpack indefinately).

    where are you riding? Are they really tough trials, or just
    so-so? If really technical, get 170s. If just so-so, get
    145s or 150s. Steep inclines require 170s, as does hopping
    on inclines. 150s, which I use, since trails in DC suck, are
    good because I can make up for the lack of technical trails
    with speed.
