    Profile Elite SS Hubs?

    Not sure if these are available yet, but does anyone have any experience with these? Big money, but nice options available.

    I can't seem to figure out whether they make a standard shimano compatible freehub on that hub or it's still their proprietary freehub.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    when i rode freestyle bmx i had a profile hub with a ti spindle and it went through a pro rider/ a semi pro rider and my self then relaced to a 3rd rim and my friend is still riding it and i sold it to him......5 years ago, never had an issue. so if its anything like my old hub i would have a problem paying for it cause it'll last for years

    I agree. I had them in bmx wheels for years. A total of 3 different sets to be exact (all on different bikes). Worth the money if you want something that is going to last and doesn require propietary tools to service them. You can also get a ti driver for them as well to help shed a little weight I believe. Top that off with the fact that they don't sound bad either (this coming from someone who likes the sound of Hopes mind you)

    The design is supposedly completely different from the tried and true Profile system. Word around here was that the early BMX ones had some issues, enough that the local guru talked me out of using them for a cruiser build last year*, but I'm sure that the bugs have been worked out by now. Keep in mind I am a little partial to Profile since they're a local company for us.

    *I used Profile Totem Race hubs instead
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.
