Profile Fixed Cranks, Spider and Ring

interbike_2009_day2_08 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. They’ve also changed up their fixed gear hubs to offer both 48h versions and a true 3/8″ axle for people going big and bending smaller diameter versions.
