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 [email protected] MAKE SURE THE WORD “CONTEST” IS IN YOUR SUBJECT LINE.
We will choose a winner by Friday 12/13.
Thanks for the support.
