Hi all
I was thinking about changing the cranks for a bigger one. (More speed.) Has any one attempted this? I have noticed the length of the crank arms are shorter than normal. And there is not much distance between the chainring and body.
Thanks Andy

Hi Andy, I think you have already noticed the 2 main problems - short crank arms and lack of room for larger crank - also the Sinclair crack is dished as well - I fitted a 3 speed sturmey archer hub to increase speed and a 24v conversion, but I found the same probs as you with a larger crank so have not fitted one,
