It’s not light yet. There’s a breeze stirring the trees above Furnace Creek and a couple of sleepy crows are cawing halfheartedly about the coming day. They’d be wearing black again, a bad choice in one of the hottest places on earth. Much to my delight the Specialized peloton would be back in pink.

A real nice write up this, well worth a read and the photography is absolutely on point.

Profile Hotness.

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.
