Profile Racing: Spline Drive Spider for Outboard Bottom Bracket Feb 25, 2010

Everyone knows the better your chainline, the more efficiently your fixed gear operates. Knowing this, Profile developed a new Spline Drive Spider for their new Outboard Bottom Bracket. The spider sits over the cup on the drive-side, allowing you to slam the ring and giving you a more efficient chainline. Not bad!

Here’s what Profile has to say:

The Spline Drive Spider for Outboard BB’s is designed to improve your chainline. It places the chainring over the bearing and cup itself, so that the chainline is closer to the centerline of the bicycle.

Machined from a thick plate of aluminum, the Spiders have a Heat Treated CrMo Steel insert pressed into them to mate with the splines on your Profile BB Spindle.

Four Arm (104bcd) versions are available now in many of our colors, and 5 arm (110bcd) will be available very soon.
