    I always ran profile cranks when I was younger. Then as I started getting older and bigger they didn't hold up.

    I love the look and feel of them though. I've been riding primo powerbites for a few years and love them.

    Only dreamed of having them. I was too poor. I saved up for a Trick Star frame and fork & bar set and the other parts was from a mongoose dirk bike. that was my dream bike. I'm a old fart now but I still have a GT that is in the boiler room.

    How old school you talking about? I'm from the woody itson gold bike days lol.

    i used to have a couple "P.K. Rippers" back in the day. they had SR tubular chromo (hollow) cranks that were the lightest ever made.

    but my dh rig i have now has a set of profiles on it. bought those after i bent a set of xtr cranks.

    I got my hands on a old PK ripper once, I wen't to change out frames and learned that I needed a very thin seat post lol.. I guess the reason I got it cheap is that someone tried to jam a standard post in the frame and cracked it. Traded to a guy who worked out them issues. Great looking frame.

    nice ride. gotta love those se racing looptails.

    but why do you have the seatpost backwards? is it an advantage that way?
