Profile Racing has some love for Flatland. They’ve just released their new flatland cranks which feature nano drive for those tiny gear ratios. These cranks come in 160mm only, right or left hand drive compatible, use a 19mm, 48 spline GDH chromoly or titanium spindle, come with hollow 6mm GDH bolts and come in black at the moment with chrome and some limited edition colors to follow. These are going for $162.95 so hit up your local shop, favorite mail-order or pick them up direct from the Profile Online Store!
Cult‘s new American made Deathrow cranks are OUT NOW. These cranks have 4130 tubular arms that are fully heat-treated and swaged with wrap around gussets on the spindle and pedal bosses, a hollow 22mm, 48-spline 4130 heat-treated chromoly spindle and hollow flushmount bolts. The Deathrow cranks are right and left hand drive compatible and weigh in at 30.4 oz. Note: These cranks do NOT come with a 22mm bottom bracket.
You can pick a set of these cranks up by having your local shop hit up the Cult Distributor in your country. If you are in the U.S you can have your local shop hit up Tip Plus (West Coast), Greenhouse (Midwest) or Animal (East Coast). These should also be hitting Dan’s Comp in the next few days as well.
The annual Frostbike tradeshow that QBP has been putting on the past few years has continued to grow and get even better. I was fortunate enough to make it up to check out the show again this year after a year hiatus. The event is one that I look forward to every year, so I made sure to have my ducks in a row this year to make sure I could get in. Walking into the show, I knew exactly where I was going and figured my first stop would have to be at the Profile Racing booth to say what’s up to Matt Coplon and get a look at what they had on display. Let’s take a look!
I know there’s a few of you out there that have been waiting for this one. Odyssey‘s Socket Drive Thunderbolt cranks and Killington Sprocket is available now. Check out more info below then hit up your favorite shop or mail-order to get some ordered up.
“Our Socket Drive interface system has been in use on our FLATWARE CRANKS since their inception, and it was only a matter of time before the system was adapted into our THUNDERBOLT cranks. The time has come.
In a nutshell, the Socket Drive™ system is a 9 sided interface which eliminates the need for a sprocket bolt. The sprocket itself is machined so there is no need for a sprocket insert of any kind. The two work great together. The interface is solid and reliable, so we are now offer the KILLINGTON sprocket to match.
