Profile Report

I had a Profile crank arm break tonight. Second attempt at a 5’ drop onto
concrete-- Luckily, we got it on film.

As for the rest of the enchilada, the axle has held up well in the six months I
have been riding it. It does have a little wear on the teeth-- as in there is a
small degree of slop in the crank arms if you wiggle the pedal end.

Anyway, gotta’ love Profile’s lifetime warranty.

Is there a possibility that the film could be posted on the internet? I would
like to see that one.

Me to!

Re: Profile Report

Sure. Give me a couple weeks, though. I’m going on spring break. (More
importantly, my brother with the video capture card is on spring break.)

Wow cool video. Is profile going to replace the crank for you?

Re: Profile Report

They already did, in a way. John Drummond hasebeen great at sending out a new
pair, even before I send him the old pair. So while my crank is in the mail
headed to Marietta, Georgia, I’m already riding Profile’s new Dirt Jumper
cranks, which have a tube diameter about 15% bigger than what I broke.

I’ve got video footage of a profile crank being broken on my (new) website.
