I rode with Doug Tuesday night in Lyons. He was on his fat Turner and just attacking everything in the Rock Garden at Hall Ranch. The new rear end is very clean, looks factory. I did not get any bike specific pics. Will add a few action shots later.dirtydoug said:

You can get chainwheels (spiderless) down to 23T. I have a 25T on one bike.dirtydoug said:Their website although pretty good doesn't have all the details. Might be worth calling them but they are bmxers at heart so be aware of that when you call.
The sultan has a 73mm bb. I opted for the 94/58 bcd spider.
I am running a 30 chain ring (pro of 94 bcd) and added on a 9 spd HG61, heavy but gets you a 36 cog. 30 x 36 seems to be good gear in steeper grade snow. Noticeably better than 32 X34.
There is also a spiderless option although cool, it seems they only make chainrings as small as 36T. When talking to profile on the phone they gave me the impression that if I wanted to dial in my chainline this is the one to get.
I am glad I went with the spider option as it is also very easy to dial in the chainline any where from (48-70mm IIRC) just need 3/4" spacers.
quality, stiff, and smooth. got the upgraded bb with enduro seals and spins nicely. It has taken some abuse because it takes some getting use to having cranks way out there.shiggy said:I.
Doug did use my suggestion from the megathread about Profile cranks. The long spindle and spacers works great and he said it is noticeable stiffer than any other crank he has used.
cool didn't know that but suspected it cause they had trials stuff.shiggy said:You can get chainwheels (spiderless) down to 23T. I have a 25T on one bike.
Doug forgot to mention the spindle he has is for a 100mm BB shell, with the extra spacers.
