Profile Hotness.

September 28, 2009

interbike_2009_day2_08

These profiles look like they could signal the end of the loose chainring bolt… I am sure all those out there who run profiles with a BMX ring will know exactly what I am talking about.

Profile Racing has fully embraced fixed city riding, and is listening to the people out there using and abusing their products. They’re recently created their first 144mm chainrings, and more importantly the spider to allow riders to use their tubular cromoly BMX cranks on a fixed drivetrain. The usual single bolt on BMX cranks that attaches the ring to the arm tend to work loose and develop play on a fixed drivetrain, but not this splined spider that fits directly on the bottom bracket axle. Cranks are also now available in a 165mm length but such things dont come cheap—expect to pay about $275 for the full crank/bb/spider/ring combination.

Leader Trick Steez.

July 30, 2009

As far as trick specific frames go these Leaders look pretty good, however I would love to see one with a set of wheels in.

My favourite element on these has to be the heavy ass gusseting on the head cluster… Reminds me a lot of my old downhill bike after I cracked it and had a pal weld some sh*t on!
