Hadnt pulled out the camera lately but got the bug today.
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.
Back when I used to do ABA racing a couple of the guys I raced against would ride with them. THey were definitely some of the best you could get.
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.
GT eh? Haven't heard about those for a long time. Always envied the few racers that had them. :er:
I wont be photographing these Profiles anymore. I just installed them on my new SE Quadangle Cruiser. Sweet bike.
Take a picture of the bike then.
nice ride. gotta love those se racing looptails.
but why do you have the seatpost backwards? is it an advantage that way?
I think the seat post is how it's supposed to be if i remember correctly.
