    Same with the argyles, 302 (ford 5.0) 318 (chrysler smallblock) or 409 (ford bigblock, chevy had a short lived 409 also but the fords was more well known.)

    Haven't had any problems with my profile slipping, but just looking at the driver, I can see how if you packed it with too much grease that may effect pawl spring return... or it could be just weak springs or worn pawls... Simple design, those are the only probs I could think of that reasonably could occur.


    ETBA, for how many blkmrkts there are out there today that one is spec'ed out very nicely, I like it.

    Not an issue with the grease being too thick. It is almost like the pawls wore down the teeth on the inside of the shell. It has happened to 3 profile different hubs. One 6 speed and 2 nine speed. I might have had a grease that was too thin? I tried everything I could after it started but then it was too late. They didn't have an easy life. Another one broke inside at the aluminum axle where the axle studs thread into. I still like Profile though. I might try and make one out of all the parts.

    That is rough man.
    I've never run any of the multi-speed Profile stuff so I'm not sure if the internals are much different. If they weren't modified or beefed up any over the SS stuff, the extra width on the cassette body might be tweaking the teeth/engagement in hub body.... but that's a lame excuse.
    I would think Profile might help you out on this, but being over the atlantic there, might be hard to get much done with them in florida.
    Also, I've heard a lot about avoiding their 3pc axle designs... weakspot in the design. You could go full chromoly internals, even the 3pc chromo might be stronger. But, not sure of availability for 135mm spaced hubs. I know you could probably get their 3/8" outer chromo axle studs to fit a 10mm mtb dropout with little modification. Which part of the axle did you break?
    Good luck with that.

    Yeah, he always has the most dialed bikes, I'm going to East Texas to ride with him next week. I'm gonna be putting all my new stuff on my bike then too, so I'll try to get some more updated pics for you guys.

    Hey Bike Satori
    I ripped the hub almost in half. I drifted into a berm and then slingshotted out the other side and the tire started rubbing on the frame. I thought it was the rim or spoke tension but the hub split in 2 and the cassette fell off with the body and half of the alu axle and the axle stud still inside. The aluminum axle broke at the end of the threads for the axle studs or between the cassette and hub shell if you will. This hub didn't have any slippage yet and I want to salvage the body because the teeth are still good but the axle is so mangled inside there that, that project is on hold for a very rainy day. I have moved on and have been having other problems with other hubs but I still haven't given up hope on the Profile hubs. The fronts are still running strong though. I would try and get parts from profile but I don't want to pay to find other problems. It is more how, how much and where I ride that is the problem not theirs. The DT Swiss hubs with their ratchet ring is working ok for now. If you want to see pics I have to upload them so just ask othwise I don't like to post broken stuff. Thinking about the single speed stuff....you might be right about the length of the cassette body on the multi geared hubs flexing the aluminum axle leading to shell tooth wear. They worked well for a long time so I am not disappointed.
    Sorry for the derail. Back to the topic at hand.

    Jackals have never been my thing.. But if you lost the front brake, got a "taco" style bash, and a pivital seat/post, that thing would be so dialed. It looks like she rides well on the DJ's... Street may be another story. Nice ride.

    27 lbs




    Notable changes from before:

    1. I re-laced/built the Halo SAS up front with alloy nips and DT Supercomps to save a little weight. (I know, I have too much time/patience.)
    2. plastic pedals (probably the best 12 bucks I've spent on my bike in recent memory)
    3. Panaracer 2.1 UST XCPro in the rear
    4. XT 4-piston rear with 140mm rotor

    I can shave even more weight in the future with a different front wheel (the rebuilt SAS front still weighs 2 lbs and change), tubeless front, and a new fork (somebody buy my 4x). But none of that will probably happen because a) I don't care enough and b) money is tight.

    But all in all, this thing hauls ass.

    It's a smallblock 8.

    Yes, we do have a store.

    Drop by sometime and I'll give you da tour. Because of the way our business works (EVERY bike is a custom one-of), we keep a constantly-rotating stock and there isn't always necessarily *cool* stuff to look at. (don't expect a bunch of 303s hangin' on the wall...) But if you drop by when the riding season starts to ramp up, I can promise you'll never see so much X.0, XTR, Dura-Ace, and Red under one roof again.

    yeah, looks fast man. Original build, that's for sure. I kinda like the tractor tire out back, just for roost points, haha, not my thing though.
    I see you are moto too...
    Never seen the twisty pc's on a 4X style bike either... most racer heads are out there droppin' benji's on the high dollar plats. Loved the old XT m755 brakes too... one of the only mineral fluid brakes that I actually wish I didn't sell off.

    by the way, your shop has got the mojo! most I've ever seen in one room together, haha.

    Thought somebody would say something about my seemingly 'off' rear tire choice... I needed something cheap, tubeless, and narrow, with bite for the dirt around here.

    Ody plastic pedals are the real deal. I can't see myself buying an expensive pair of boutique pedals when these work just as well, if not better, paired with just about ANY shoe.

    We sold nearly 100 Mojo's last year. Seems everybody wants to get their hands on one -- including myself. Should've seen the 13 Mojo SL's we had here last week....

    haha, I thought that chainstay yoke was the best part on the whole frame! I just like that style... reminds me of my molly just a hair. But this one here looks like a big wrap-around, almost like you have to deflate the tire just to put it on if you run a fatty out back...

    But yeah, bb does look low, that's what I was questioning in the other thread on this bike...

    The simple color looks pretty cool, clean, but you should have shaved the forks disc tabs before you painted. Rat-can it?
    Looks like a lightweight build, like the twisty pc's.

    Brad @ Nempro - Why would you lower the old 66's? That fork is like 8 pounds, its heavier than your frame >.>

    XSL_WiLL, STP frames can't clear 203mm rotors.

    Wow... that question was asked like 2 years ago when I was thinking about buying one. And it actually does clear a 203mm rotor.

    Not exactly sure what you are replying too here..... but,
    ...Brad slammed 66's before you were probably even pondering riding a big bike in the park. He was pretty ahead of his time on what he was doing back then. I'm pretty sure he must have realized how overkill that fork was, even at that time of bomb-proof trends, but it gets attention, no doubt about it... it spread some word.

    People wanted more and more and more travel at that time, putting dual-crown forks on hardtails while he was busy slamming forks for shorter A-C lengths and steeper head-angles, more bmx like, where most other huckers were aiming at choppers. And look where we are now. slamming your Fox XC fork to keep the weight down and make it handle more like a bmx...

    yes i bought it as a complete...transition gives u many options and i chose their freeride single ring kit, rp23, and pike 454 air u-turn....transition sent all the parts and the shop had to assemble it....they could have just sent me everything and i could have assembled it myself but they decided they would assemble it and ship it like all complete bikes are sent (handlebars off, front wheel off, front caliper off, pedals off, etc...) so i will just have a quick 5 min setup and i'm good to go

    This is my new urban/ss/dj bike, This setup weighs 34.59 lbs. (150mm spacing) With some further light weight modifications, (SLR saddle, Ti spring, wellgo pedals, mono mini pro brakes, xtr cranks) She could easily get down to 31-&-change

    Thank god you're getting lighter cranks. I was scrolling down and I saw the top of your bike then the middle and was like shitttttttttttttt thats ****ing nice.... and then I saw the cranks. Buzzkill. Amazing build though, specially when you get the new parts

    Haha, thanks. I built it up for DH riding first, and it originally weighed in at 40lbs So all this new stuff will be the light side of the spectrum, for AM, urban, and DJ type riding. I already ordered the spring and the pedals, the next upgrade will be the cranks for sure.

    I don't know why those cranks would be a "buzzkill", they are a staple item in this area of biking, unlike this bike as a whole, haha.

    The only buzzkill I would find is the fact that it has a few too many gears to make it an "ss", haha... maybe you mistyped?
    edit: I'm an idiot... been in this forum too long. Didn't realize you meant SS = slopestyle, I was thinking SingleSpeed, my bad. In that case, you're right on point with that one, no doubt about it.
    ...a bit too much squish for "urban" riding too IMO. ...urban, man I dislike that word, almost as useful here as it is in referring to "urban" music.

    Intense bike though, that's for sure.

    You know the name of the bike is SS (as in slopestyle) right? My bad, I must've forgotten this isn't the Intense forum, where SS refers to the slopestyle, instead of single speed

    "Urban" does suck as a term, but its the only way to be broad enough to cover all the types of riding people do in an urban setting. I prefer the ability to do more free-riding whilst riding on an "URBAN ASSAULT!!!!" (inside joke I guess), where as a lot of you guys posting here seem to enjoy the bmx style more. Its all personal preference, and how you use the (lame-ish) word 'urban'.

    I'll be honest, I haven't paid much attention to the Intense offerings since the days of the mighty M1. They have always been out of my pocketbooks reach, and a bit too "racerboy" for me anyway. Always great products I'm sure though.
    And while it sho' ain't no SS SuperSport with a Bigblock LS6, it does look fun as hell.

    Mmmm... LS6. My new whip was supposed to be a LS1 powered TransAm. Same basic block architecture as the LS6, was going to do long tube headers and LS6 intake manifold... Then I decided to run it by my insurance agent... Well... it's now out of the question. I might have to get an import... Can't find a clean s14 240sx... might have to settle for a Teggy or a Lude... I would love another Celica All-Trac... but they're not easy to find. And I'm not a fan of the Subaru... some of the stuff isn't thought out too well... I guess I could get an LT powered Camaro or TA... Insurance is about what I'm paying on the daily driver right now... But I prefer the newer styling.

    The LS is small block design though... The Camaro SS is the only SS that got an LS motor. Well... the 06+ Monte Carlo and Impala SS got the LS4... but it's still a transvserse FWD.

    The Impala SS had an LT1 motor. And the LT is still a small block.

    Both motors are brilliant, I love them.

    you're thinking too recent my friend.

    69/70 Chevelle SS had option for the legendary LS6 454. My father had one as a crate engine, re-built it in his bath-tub and put it in his 69' vette (after blowing the stock 427) and ran mid 10's on street tires, and this was in the early 70's mind you. Would torque the whole frame over and lift the front off the ground, he called it the leapin' frog since it was dark green.

    I also had a '96 Impala SS, all black with blue ghost flames... fun car, but it was a boat, actually glad I got rid of that when I did.

    My brother had one of the last TransAm WS6's ever built.... sold it off for some cash for another investment... he now has a pristine '01 Z06. I think he regrets selling the TA though.

    Yeah definitely should've held on the WS6, especially since it was one of last ones. Much less 'racerboy' than a vette too... jk

    haha, agreed... but then again, this Z06 is from the first model year of it's new return. this is the only reason it still remains stock, no exhaust or cam, etc...
    I've still got some unused brand new full leather seats from that WS6 sitting in my barn too. My bro worked for Lear, so he had extra seating for just about every vehicle we've ever owned just because it was free... gonna hit ebay soon... got some for an 02 z71 sierra too if anybody's interested.

    ...neither car is really my style, but hey, I don't complain about the vette being "racerboy", even if I did agree, it's currently parked in my garage and I can take it out any time I want! only problem is, it doesn't do well in snow here. haha, but seriously, everytime I drive the vette, I just get all these ridiculous nasty looks from people, looks of either hatred for burning extra fossil fuels, or looks of pure jealousy (not to mention cop magnet)... but either way, it just makes me feel like an as$hole even if I'm not driving like one... I don't dig it. Low-key sleeper is more my style.

    Ha... yeah... I am thinking a little too recent. You're right.

    I loved those Impala SS. My buddy's ran 13 seconds with all of his audio gear loading down the back.

    I'm not a big fan of the C5 Corvette. The C6 is a different story though...

    standard practice. Assemble it, test it so everything works, disconnect the bars, pedals, seatpost and front wheel and ship.

    Lenosky STP!!

    Finally finished up my build! Comes in at a hefty 25.6lbs. This will also be my dedicated SS, so don't mind the front brake and the Candy's they will come off when DJing.

    A "hefty" 25.6, haha!

    Last I time I weighed my Molly she was around that with a rigid front fork and no front brake.

    Ya your right Will, I have SB8's but very muddy around here right now so the MotoRaptors will due. The pedals will come off on the days when I go DJing. Can you imagine the weight if I were to put my Float 100rl and Crossmax's on this thing. Please don't flame me on the Mavics, it's the only QR wheels I have sitting around.

    Yeah I know it's light, but this is also my SS for xc/am. I am running a 23/13 ratio because I am going to be riding on the trails around here (Fort Ord) and I wanted a micro drive and this was the closest that i could find to a 32/18 which I normally run. I should'nt be posting this in this forum but.......I know I could drop another pound or two without sacrificing durability.

    Booo on the zero tolerance sign! Slightly ironic that you're riding a BlkMrkt and there's a zero tolerance sign in the background.
