I can only say they were good hubs, it's up to you. I haven't rode BSDs but heard they're good.

what dont you like about profiles?

Profiles are well known to have wobble straight out of the box.
Un even flanges are fucking stupid.
Overly expensive for no good reason
I killed mine in a very short period of time
They are only still counted as great hubs due to fan boys and kids that think expensive shit means its the best

I prefer profiles. I love them. can't say anything bad about the BSD hubs cause I have never rode them. but from what people have said, the BSD hubs are good. So either hubs are good Imo. I would just prefer profiles.

ive had two sets and never had this wobble problem you speak of, having a smaller flange of the non drive side is a good idea, theres no point having a big flange of that side, its a waste and looks fucking ugly, you must of done some serious shit to kill yours lol.

Although plenty of people do, i will NEVER trust pegs with my Profile minis. If you run pegless & they will never ever touch a rail or coping then Profiles the engagement is second to none. If you ride Street then the BSDs however if you have the money for Profiles i would Suggest getting G-Sport Marmoset & Ratchet hubs OR if you can wait get the Simian hubs. OR..... (Again lol) Get the Odyssey Antigram hubs. The Front will be out in a few weeks time. They're lighter than the G-Sports feature the same style axle set up just scaled down, same drive system. I would recommend them in a heartbeat!

6/20/2013 4:33 PM

Oh & i meant to say Check out Eclat wheels. Very, Very, Veeeeery High Quality! The Dynamic Cassette Features on of those million point engagement systems & you can get slip on Non & DSG guards for them too! The Front one is awesome too, features narrower flange spacing for better grind clearance also, you can get guards for it too for ultimate Grindage!

Different flange sizes can "dish" (Or whatever the technical term is) your wheel out a lot more. I don't care if it's extra weight or doesn't look as good, if it's a stronger wheel, I don't care. Not a good idea at all. I wouldn't get Profile personally because there's much better parts for less money, and I've heard way too many stories about parts fucking up and customer care being shitty.

why would it "dish" your wheel out? you just have longer spokes on one side. ive had no problems with any profile parts ive run and i would recommend them to anyone after a set of good hubs

6/20/2013 7:09 PM

BSD for sure out of those two. Only way I'd ever ride Profile hubs is if they were given to me for free.

You answered your own question. You have longer spokes on one side. I'm always horrible at explaining things so I'll let someone else get further into that so I don't confuse anyone more than they already are, haha.

I would strongly suggest profile because tons of people I know ride them around where I live they all didn't have any problems and from personal experience they ride great but if you don't got the cash bsd wouldn't be bad either I know only two people that ride them and love bsd personally I would get profile if you had the cash but either way they're both great hubs

so why is having a longer spoke length on one side a problem? tonnes of hubs are like that

I hate to say this, but its true. I have 3 others sets of profile hubs, totems, minis and elites...just picked up another set of minis, put a tire on, mounted them to the bike...it has a slight play/wobble in the front hub. Im awaiting shims to fix it. As long as the shims correct the issue and I can ride as I do with no limits, I dont care...

BSD hubs are nice as well, if you want a serious street hub that can take anything, get the BSD. Ive rode numerous amounts of hubs, the BSD have rolled the longest when cruising around. They are smooth and reliable plus the price of their hubs are great!!

I personally wouldn't get Profiles because I don't see why they cost so much, and whats so special about them, other than they look good and they're quite light.

Profiles have 6061 Shells.
BSDs have 7075 Shells I believe.
I'm pretty sure they both have 4 Pawl Drivers.
And IMO the Allen Key only Bolts on Female Profiles are stupid, obviously they can be replaced but that makes it cost even more.
