With the long weekend after Thanksgiving, my lady and I took a little trip to the Florida Keys. I brought my bike along on the mini vacation just in case I found cool stuff to ride, and I definitely did find some cool spots!
My plan was to throw the bars through all the keys, but I didn’t get to do all of them so I ended up just finding cool spots to do some on Big Pine Key, Key West, Bahia Honda Key and a few more. Besides just doing bar spins, I found a cool palm tree to ride, A little roof to hop off at the start of the 7 mile bridge and hung out with Key deer.
I think the coolest move of them all was doing the southern most bar spin in the USA! The riding was super fun, but the best parts of the trip were the relaxing with the lady, Camping at Bahia Honda state park and Key west and kayaking through the keys!
If you’ve never been to the Florida Keys, I’d recommend a visit.

The Profile Mini Hubs were originally released in 2001.
Built originally for race application, the mini hubs were soon modified to accept a 14mm axle in the rear.
However, the front, with an aluminum 3/8 inner axle, has not changed much since its inception.
By 2002, the Mini Hubs became our primary freestyle ramp/street hub which can be used with pegs.
By 2008, we released the Profile Totem and Madera Pilot front hubs. All of which take the same exact Mini aluminum axle with 3/8 chromo bolts. These two additional front hubs can be ridden with pegs as well.
Last Wednesday at the skatepark I was answering some questions from the locals. Within the questions, most of them were based around the ability to ride pegs on a front Profile Mini Hub. At that point, I realized that it might not be common knowledge.
To better show the varieties of peg use, here is a photo selection of our riders’ front wheels.
If you can identify each riders wheel, you will be entered to win a selection of the three newest Profile logo shirts.
Write in the rider’s names next to the photo number associated with the front wheel and submit your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. MAKE SURE THE WORD “CONTEST” IS IN YOUR SUBJECT LINE.
We will choose a winner by Friday 12/13.
Thanks for the support.
These are the riders’ featured front wheel photos in random order:
Grant Castelluzzo, Jared Eberwein, Mark Mulville, Chad DeGroot, Rob Diquattro, Dillon Leeper, Mike Meister, Matt Coplon and Ricky Moseley.
