Profile + Krull + Stout Jul 8, 2009

Tomorrow I’ll hopefully be putting on my Profile race cranks with the Volume Krull and a Milwaukee Bicycle Co. Stout (130bcd / pcd)

We’ll see how I like it. Profile was kind enough to send me a new axle that’s shorter than their standard BMX axle. This should bring my Q-factor closer to the track numbers. I’ll still ride the sprocket bolt, to ensure that the splines won’t strip out too fast.

Even though I’m switching I can’t say nicer things about the SRAM Omniums. They’ve lasted me much longer than I thought they would have. While riding them, I’ve gapped a 9 set, hit multiple drops and long gaps. I thought for certain the external BB would pit out, but they’re bulletproof. I’m 220 lbs and like to go as big as I am able to. Somehow they’re still alive and kicking. In fact, I may be putting them on my girlfriend’s track bike. Cheers to you SRAM! Now make them in BLACK!
