Profile Alternatives

hi all,

Ive been searching around for maybe a cheaper option than a profile, As i would like a rear freehub instead of running a freewheel. In searching i have found many cassette hubs but no website says how many engagement points they have(possibly because its a bmx site :lol: )

Any knowlege shared would be great!

Cheers in advance,

Jay ^_^

hey the hazzard hub u just mentions will do the job has the same amount of engagment points as the profile i think. they r nice and string a few of my bmxer mates run them but they r quite abit heavier it all depends on weather you want to save money but add weight.

hope that helps cheers Glynn

sorry dude the hazzard wont work on a mod its got 14mm solid axles (mod dropouts are 10mm), if you wait a week or so ill have a chris king bmx rear hub on ronnie rim for sale (£200) with brand new bearings installed

I think you can get in in a 10mm axle as well.

thanks anyways mate, but 200 is a bit pricey, would u take a t-pro frame and monty xlite back wheel for it though mate? if i hear good things about the hazard hub then i wont mind grinding out my dropouts if VERY nessescary.

cheers all,

Jay :)

My mate had no money for a profile but wanted a rear freehub, so he got a front fixed cog(echo) and then got a 13tooth oddessy free wheel. which works just as good really but not as many ingagment points.(derrr) he puts it trough so much shit and its as god as the day he got it! all in all t cost him £34.

hope ive helped

BMX hubs arn't designed for trials. The only reason profile works sooo well with trials is becuase it's a very very good hub. Designed for racing, so really it shouldn't be strong enough for trials, as trials produces alot for more forse than racing. No one else has ever really tried other hubs, they would do the job i supose, but you never know when it could give up on you.

Try other hubs at your own risk.

You can, its the called the oddessy hazzard lite, its a lovely hub, but! is comes with a 16 tooth cog, iam not sure that you can get a suitable size.

Its worth having a look on ebay, You can buy a PAIR for 140, new, which is great!. still would say get it from tarty if you get one new.

cheers

good luck
