Work great,but only with a 48 spline spindle.

Mostly peaceful posting on vital.

As blogs said only 48 spline spindles. Mostly 19mm but united and profile make a 22mm spline drive sprocket. And then odyssey has the socket drive system which is like spli e drive but instead of splines it's like an octagon but it has 9 sides Instead of 8.

Have a Tree OG spline drive and i love it. I have noticed though some spindles are harder to install them on than others. It was a bitch to get it on my ezra cranks, it slid on my profiles pretty easily though.

it depends. they look better on paper because theres a full force of the spindle driving it instead of just a spot with a bolt. and they do feel better too. i rode a tree 4130 sd and it was nice. but ive heard stories of spindles or the spline inserts twisting. that has never happened to me though and i doubt it would happen under a normal load

I feel like it's gonna take a lot to actually twist a spindle, seeing as how they're relatively strong. But I guess the right fat kid in the right conditions could do it. Or I guess it's very possible with a Ti spindle.
But still, I wouldn't worry about it.

To install, just use the method on the Profile website. I just figured it out experimenting, no need for others, lol. And use LOTS of grease on the splines or you will go through hell not just with installing, but if you ever want to remove it. My sprocket is kinda thin like the Tree SD sprockets and it doesn't use an insert so it looks pretty nice. I think the splines either stretched just a teeny bit like my crank arms or the grease just broke in super well cause my sprocket slides on and off so easily.

titanium will snap before it bends or twists.

By far the worst thing ever. I've seen sooo many seize. But fuck it if you wanna save 2 grams and make your bike feel 1% better go for it.


If you do a lot of taking your bike apart for cars and such it's a really bad idea

I seek progression, not perfection.

Why would you pulla sprocket off for a car trip? I just pull my wheel(s) off.

5 bikes in an 86 corolla with 5 dudes. Need all the room you can't get especially since my friends like to ride sketchy at best bikes, 90% of the time when they take them apart in anyway it doesn't go back on the same.....
