All the tires you listed above should fit fine. I'm not 100% on the Eclat tires, but they should be good too.

Added reply in a thread profile elite opinions 5/19/2016 1:13 PM

The Centre Axle in the 3/8" female Profile Elite hub is Aluminum. It is not suggested for peg use. You'll definitely want the 14mm male Axle for any peg use as it is Chromoly if you go with the Elite hub. With the Profile Mini hubs, you can get a Chromoly ... more »

One of my favourite frames for riding street! I was riding one before I swapped to an S&M Bonesaw! Since you're in Canada we can ship you one for free if you don't have a good local.

They exist and work great. Tons of people in Canada run them.

You can build any rims and hubs up for the most part, our mechanic just always comments how cinema hubs and rims build together very nicely.

Verde makes one too. They call it a neo-integrated headset.

Added reply in a thread Some questions! 5/14/2016 8:49 PM

Folding tires got more expensive and started going the way of the dodo bird. Your BTM must be a bit older if it can barley fit your tire, they have made the back ends wider on newer BTMs as well as most new frames. Good tires that come in smaller sizes... ... more »

They have some basic OEM type stuff and also some high end stuff. The VX2 hubs and 777 rims are quite nice. The FX is a nicely made KHE style freecoaster.

It's loud and has a nice click to it. Different than other hubs, definitely different sounding than Profile but still nice and loud.

Yeah Cymbals are expensive, but will last forever. Hopefully one day the Canadian $$ gets a little stronger and these prices will easy off a bit.

Added reply in a thread Thoughts on Cinema Rear Hubs? 5/14/2016 11:47 AM

Cinema hubs are really nice. The VX2 is super well made, parts are easily replaceable in Canada (not sure about availability across the pond), drive side is easily switchable and driver is bearing less to avoid any problems there. If you're building ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bike Shop Rant 5/6/2016 1:00 PM

I think in a lot of general bike shops, they just aren't comfortable working on BMX bikes. They aren't experienced with them, and it makes them a little more hesitant to work on them. Did you check and actually see if your rim was cracked on the inside? ... more »

If you are the original owner of that frame you can apply for warranty. Fit offers lifetime crash replacement on any of their complete bikes or hardgoods like frames. Frames also have a 1 year replacement warranty. More info here:

Added reply in a thread Look what my friend did 5/3/2016 3:52 PM

These will get straight up replaced if they are less than a year old. If they are over it will be crash replacement and the new forks will be super cheap. Just tell him to contact the shop he bought them at.

It should be duty free since its USA made. If you're actually interested shoot me an email chris (at) I have sent one out to a customer in Washington so I can ask him if he had to pay any extra border fees.

Well you can always check out the distributor's website: If they have it on there it's most likely in stock. Their inventory isn't live but they take stuff down as it sells outhe. I can always order any of that stuff for you. It would be free ... more »
