why did you just get profiles if you have tibias already?

|

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

hot, you should just stach the profiles until you either build up a freestyle fixie (lol) or break the tibias (also lol)

that would 100% work because spline drive sprocket can go on either side.just switch the spacers and put the drive side on the left side and the big fat non drive side on the right,cuz maderas have bosses on both arms and they can use spline drive sprocket and they made a spline drive sprocket.

Your a fucking retard. Profiles are actually shitty race cranks. Talk to the people who actually ride in your town and I bet you will meet a lot of people who have bent profiles. I've snapped a set and got them replaced only to have bent the fuck out of them again. There's was a huge trend in state college when I went to school to have profiles.....which lasted about three months because everyone bent the shit out of them. Profiles are the most overrated crank ever

Hahaha wow you know people better than me....impressive. I will post pics of my bent profiles later tonight, they are profiles trust me I bought them right from profile. I never throw my bike because that it was homo 16 year old park rats who can't get their foot jams to look right do.

i've gotta dig around on my hard drive and i will show you them off the bike because im sure you will just say i had them a spline off. They bent so bad that the metal crinkled on the bottom of both arms....thats not even mentioning the set which i broke 3 months priar to these bending. This set bent by launching like a 7 foot or so start ramp at a park backwards to flat. I will love to have the video posted to show you that the cranks bent right there because everyone at the park kept asking if they are real profiles. I even called profile because i thought it was the spindle and they said that the arms bending is pretty common for street riders.

I know like three people who I watched personally break a pair of profiles, they are race cranks not street cranks, cry about it.

The hubs are a little overrated too....

and for everyone else

The cranks are great. For what they were designed for- racing. Why do you think you can get them in so many different lengths?

Eclats are stronger and better for street/ park. Ask Sean Burns.

I agree. They design parts for racing, hence why the company is called "Profile Racing". You can't expect them to hold up to everything you throw at them. That's why I would chose Eclats.

they may have been designed for racing but they are and have been strong enough for street/trails/park usage...
