Crankarms 160mm (or less)

I am looking for crankarms or crank that has crankarms size 160mm. I found one at rotor but these are expensive (400euros+ for crank). Anyone has suggestions? Crankarms have to fit my shimano 6700 crankset.

    Wut? The 6700 chainset doesn't have a removable spider? Or are you talking about the bottom bracket? Rotor 3D cranks can be had for way less than €400. Shop around.

    There are places that can shorten your existing crank. Here's one in the US but I would guess there are others in the UK as well. This can't be accomplished with all cranks of course but worth a look.

    Hollow cranks can't be shortened easily. Ta specialities make 155mm cranks but they are square taper. You won't get a 155mm crank arm for Ultegra 60 so you can stop looking nd start saving for rotor or switch to a lovely square taper design. -wheel building and other stuff.

    Highpath Engineering offer a crank shortening service otherwise you'll need to replace the entire chainset and possibly BB. Spa Cycles do some junior cranks - 155mm - the shortest from the mainstream brands is typically 165mm.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Mich Young cranks are in really short lengths , not expensive too.
    Square taper only, a bit odd BCD 116 mm...

    Here's another option for 160mm. Not super cheap but takes the old 5 arm standard Shimano bolt circle chainrings for Compact 110mm or Standard 130mm and looks like it includes a Shimano sized outboard BB.

    Fsa do 160mm and you can get an Ultegra 160mm if you look around.
