Product Spotlight – Profile Fixed Gear Hubs: September 10, 2007

For those unfamiliar with fixed hubs, the rear hub doesn’t coast or freewheel, the gear or cog is fixed to the hub.Profile’s design features a fixed cog on one side and a freewheel on the other. The rider can switch from fixed gear riding to a freewheel just by turning the wheel over.

Cogs are sold separately, Profile is manufacturing 13-14-15-16 tooth cogs for 3/32 and 1/8 chains. We will have larger cogs (17-18-19-20) available soon.

The rear hub is offered with either 120mm or 130mm spacing, for true Track frames, or converted road bike frames, respectively. If the demand is strong enough, we will make 110mm spaced rear hubs for NJS frames. To complete the track hubset Profile’s front hub is available in standard 100mm spacing. Axle ends are available with Allen headed Cr Mo bolts, Quick Release or, Titanium Allen-headed bolts as an upgrade. They will be sold only in pairs.

Of course, the new dimension that Profile adds to the track hub is anodized colors. The Profile Track Hub is available in 6 color options, with matching hubshell and axle ends.

MSRP for the CrMo or QR set is $250, or $300 with Ti bolts
