For use with the new XX1 one-piece cassette on your Profile Elite MTB hub.
CNC precision machined AL alloy.
Profile’s XX1 cassette-to-driver component lets the owner of Profile’s Elite 9/11 speed hubs convert them to the new XX1 standard. This makes your Profile Elite now compatible with the XX1 drivetrain. The new Elite XX1 driver can be easily installed on Profile’s Elite 9/11 speed MTB hubs. Springs and Pawls not included.

Heres a brief rundown of whats up.
Most people who know me know I do a ton of shows. I was able to travel so much this year and it was really a phenomenal year! I did shows in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana. We also did more International trips than any year in the past. I was able to go to Mexico, Peru, Nicaragua twice and the Philippines for 18 days! We spent a whole week in Cebu which is one of the areas affected by the Typhoon they just had… Luckily, I believe everyone we made relationships with is alright. What most don’t know is that the shows I do are with a ministry. We witnessed a lot of lives changed with the message of hope and love! If you want to know more about what we do I would love to chat! Email me @ email@example.com.
I do shows with a guy on a motorcycle. He jumps humans. This one is from Los Mochis, Mexico. He has hit people but never landed on them.
When we were in Nicaragua, we were able to do a show for girls stuck in the sex trade. We worked with a ministry that gets them out of the brothels and helps them understand their worth! This was a girl with us that was able to use her story to inspire them to want more out of life!
Found this red wall in Nicaragua with a bike tagged on it and snapped a pic of my trials bike next to it. This bike is a blast!
Anyone who follows me on Instagram also knows I am very involved with coffee. I have an awesome job that I would never have imagined possible. I developed the passion for coffee about four years ago starting a business with a friend. Fast forward those four years and I do all the training and roast all the coffee for a shop that is very close to multiple locations. We have sold franchise rights in India, Pakistan and Dubai! I will most likely be traveling to all those places in the next six months to install roasters and teach others how to roast coffee. Follow my travels @iamjoewest!
Our skatepark just got a facelift as well and it so refreshing. Jimmy Smith and I have been riding as much as possible there or street and having a blast. Filming little Instagram edits and getting some clips for a project we are working on…
Here is the skatepark before it was finished. We went from a 4′ tall box to a 6′ tall box. Kids are literally confused on how to clear it.
Did shows at Christian camp in Texas a couple weeks this year. They had a mini ramp and it was very fun but small as it gets.
My bike is still stacked with Profile parts. Actually I even have a 24″ thats got Profile Elite Disc hubs and no boss cranks with spline drive.
I shot this photo of Andy Seehausen in Saint Louis. He likes to roll out fakie so this worked perfect. Been really getting into photography in the last couple of years.
Last words would be: Life is short, bicycles are fun even as you get older and always maintain caffeination!

Click on Mr. B’s head to go to see the gallery, links, what is good, and everything related the Mr. B’s 4 year bash. Thanks.
With over 350 people attending Mr. B’s 4 year anniversary I would say it was incredible for everyone who hung out to ride, relax, eat, drink, film, take pics, and support the local scene here. Even Longwood’s finest stopped by due to a complaint call, they didn’t want to shut it down and they had to stop by and see what was going on, so thanks for being understanding that we are doing cool things and people are taking notice. With no indoor places to ride its up to us to make what we have better and DIY events and get everyone to help out and keep the scene going strong. Couldn’t have been done without these sponsors: Deco BMX, GGSB, Red Bull, Shadow, Subrosa, PowerBar, Profile Racing, Markit Skateboards, Duvin Design, Vendetta grip tape, Space Station, Fit, S&M, Kink, Animal, Hurricane Wings. Thank you so much each and everyone that helped out, drove here, flew in, picked up trash, pushed some to do a trick, smiled, laughed, cooked, and gave a sh*t about what we do and our scene. -Chad D

“I recently just experienced a first for myself last week, I had the opportunity to do an NFL halftime show for the Oakland Raiders through the show company that I normally do shows for, BMX Pros Trick Team. I’ve been doing shows for Woody Itson for years, I believe my first show ever I was 16, long time ago. I’ve been able to experience a lot of different places and travels because of these shows that I do for Woody. Also very different an unique shows that I would have never imagined doing, for instance a halftime show for the Oakland Raiders. I could kind of guess what the situation was going to be like after dealing with so many different setups and conditions. Grass, big field, halftime, which usually means not that much time. Quickly setting up and getting right to it is usually the plan. We arrived at about 9AM the game wasn’t until 1PM but they had tons of fans filling the parking lot up with tailgating and just getting lose before the game. There was a little section in the middle of everything where people can get together for some drinks, food, and fun activities. We were setup amongst the mix of things also, scheduled to do a show at 10:30 AM. Then after that figure out a plan for the halftime performance setup. Ran through a little trial setup and figured everything out. Once all of that was set, we were taken to a little box suite they setup for us to watch the first quarter of the game. I had never been to a live NFL game, it was quite the experience, and for it to be a Raider game too, it was pretty intense. The fans were SO die hard and gungho for their team, I was a little intimidated, after our first show they gave us Raider hats to wear, I felt safer wearing the hat, because it was kind of like protection. Showing that I was on the Raiders fans side, making me feel more comfortable haha. We had to go down to the field at the beginning of the 2nd quarter just to be ready and get things lined up. Once it hit halftime, we rush on to the field withw a crew of dudes to help setup. The workers drove a golf cart stacked with a lot of plywood because everything was on grass. They laid out the base for use to set the ramp up on, we started working on that as they started laying out our 40 yard runway. Everything was ready to go, we rush back to the start of the runway and wait for our introductions. Once they ran through all 4 of us, it was showtime. The plan was, once the person in front of you takes off of the lip thats when its time to go. We had 4 riders we thought it was going to be a pretty good easy quick show, turned out to be sooo tiring. Our pedal back was in grass, our runway to the ramp was 40 yards, it pretty much turned into a non stop loop of laps. All I wanted was a little break to catch my breath, just had to get through it. We all did about 6 jumps non stop back to back, which usually ins’t that much and fairly easy, but it must have been the grass that was the killer part of the whole performance. Once we we’re done, we handed our bikes off and quickly disassembled the ramp and rolled it off the field with the help of all of the crew, and that was a wrap. The most amount of people that I’ve ever done any kind of performance for by far in my life, sold out stadium in the Oakland Raider’s hometown. Not sure on the figure, but close to 53,000. I had a blast and was such a rush!”
