Profile Horeshoe Pedals.

Made from 356 Aluminum, and came with chrome-moly shafts. Titanium spindles were an option. They also made a smaller version's, with titanium shafts, for mini's, and or smaller, lighter riders. The horseshoe shape was designed to reduce the chance of digging your pedal into the turn

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

sounds like a 90's Profile spider.  Did anyone else notice that the frame in the last test shown had brazed on cable guides?  Boy would I like to have THAT bike!

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

This post will concentrate on the famous Profile cranks. This thread will be covering the 1st gen , 2nd gen, and 3rd gen cranks extensively, with the 4th, 5th, 6th making their appearance.

I may have put this post together in this thread, but non of the credit for all of the info thats about to be unleashed here comes to me. The majority (97%) of the info was put together by area211 from osbmx. It was his hardwork, dedication, and attention to detail, that has provided this invaluable information regarding one of the industries best built cranks. All praise should go to him. (Thanks Bro)


I have also used pictures, in this post, from other users who have provided them. Some are from Profile, and magazines (unknown dates)

1ST-Generation BOX Cranks ( 1979 / 80 / 81? ):
Fabricated from sheet metal which was folded, welded, then chromed. Right angle sides with harsh edges along length of arms. Fully-splined gold-colored axles. Smooth faces (NO indent for decals). Also "private label manufactured" for Odyssey and Hutch (pre-aerospeed). Serial numbers engraved near pedal bosses: XXX-XXX (first 3 digits appear to be arm length followed by a manufacturing number... [need to confirm serial nomenclature].)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/profile_1st_gen_box.jpg
Profile's website. Same oblong decal we see in later versions - albeit ill applied probably due to lack of a marker. (Note the lack of weep holes on back side).

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/profilecrank.jpg
BMX Action. Note the rubdown type on the arm: "Odyssey 180 Profile" applied by Odyssey

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/post-1659-1222753093.jpg
BMX Action 1981 Hutch Crank Review. Decals applied by Hutch.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/cranksassembled.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------
2ND-Generation BOX Cranks (1981? / 82 ):
Same folded & welded metal as 1st-gen; however, these utilized thicker sheet metal. Also: added weep holes on inner arms and very slight sticker indents on outer arms. Same "squarish" edges along length of arms. Black axles splined only at ends. Serial numbers engraved near pedal bosses: XXX-XXX however, first 3 digits are NO longer designate arm length... [Need to confirm... but I've seen some with higher than possible length numbers in the first three digits].) Peel-n-stick 3-color oblong decals "Profile Racing Products" as well as 1-color "Odyssey Profile USA".

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

(401cranks says.,.,,,.)If people want to get technical, there appears to be a couple of variations with second gen cranks (see below).

First gen (1980-1981). Marketed as Hutch Hi-Performance cranks, Odyssey cranks, and Profile cranks.
*Tapered box design
*Known lengths - 175MM and 180MM (engraved by hand on each arm)
*Known Profile spiders sizes - 110 and 130
*Arms have no sticker indentations on their faces
*Fully splined, gold-ish colored spindle
*Fit 9/16" pedals and some fit 1/2" pedals (Hutch marketed ones only?)
*Profile spiders are different (recessed) when compared to the standard Profile spiders in order to fit the extra lip on the drive side arm.
*No weep holes on the backsides of the crank arms.

Second gen (1982-1983, 1984)??? Marketed as Profile or Odyssey cranks.
*Tapered box design.
*Known lengths 165MM, 170MM, 175MM, 177MM, 180MM, 185MM, and 203MM (built for rider, Kevin McNeal).
*Length engraved by hand on each arm.
*Known Profile spider sizes - 110 and 130.
*Slight indentations for stickers (not as profound as third gen Profile cranks).
*Black or grey colored spindles that are NOT spined from end to end.
*Some second gens have the recessed spider that fits onto the extra lip on the drive arm. Some second gen cranks do not have this lip and feature a regular Profile spider.
*Some of these cranks have weep holes on the backsides of the crank arms, and some do not have weep holes.
*Changed to a larger diameter sprocket-drive boss on the cranks that do not have the extra lip on the drive arm and recessed Profile spider.



----------------------------------------------------------
3RD-Generation TUBULAR (1983+)
Completely re-engineered computer-designed tubular arms. THESE ARE CONSISTENTLY AND ERRONEOUSLY REFERRED TO AS 2ND-GEN BOX CRANKS. They still have a "squarish" look to them at the pedal bosses; however, they do have decidedly rounder edges along the length of the arm, heavy sticker indents on outer arms. Weep holes present on inner arms. Early ones have arm length engraved near pedal boss. Later ones have the arm length stamped in middle of inner faces. [Differences between the early and later variations can be seen in comparison images above]

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/BMX/DSC00018.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/BMX/DSC00299.jpg

(area211 says.,.,.,.)...I have compiled two image charts comparing Profile's 3rd-gen (decal indents) crank arms to the 4th- and 5th-gen (blank-face) crank arms that are out there. Further below is a "generational" re-cap of the Profile crank arms.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/area211_profiles_faces.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/area211_profiles_ends.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------
4TH-Generation (BLANK) arms
Same design as 3rd gens except no sticker indent, no weep holes, added USA stamp.
From Chris (mr.coasterbrake): "The only thing different between Profile and Hutchins was how they were labeled. This is also true for several other companies who were supplied cranks by Profile in the early/mid '90s. mongoose, DB, haro/fusion...etc all used a stock "plain" Profile arm with different decals/screens." Example seen in my comparison image above. [ Chris also has several GT stamped arms in this generation. ]

----------------------------------------------------------
5th-Generation (BLANK) arms: wider and rounder:
Appear to be same as the later stamped-logo versions. Not sure if these are actually predecessors to the stamped-logo Profiles OR made consecutively for "private label manufacturing". Example seen in my comparison image above. [ As mentioned by Chris, Profile logo-stamped arms are believed be even rounder than these.] [I've seen some stamped logo versions with "GT USA" and "Powerlite" on eBay which "appear" to be of this 5th generation.]

And check the spiders. The one on the right are for 1 piece cranks

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

Gyrolite hubs. Solid, smooth, beautiful. There's a set of these on Shane's Champ Pro 24 that's displayed here in the shop. We made these for a few years, in 1982-83 or thereabouts.

http://www.profileracing.com/media/user/vintage_gyrolite_650.jpg


Featherlite hubs. These have the same axles as the Gyrolites, and were made in both aluminum as well as magnesium. A lot of the magnesium stuff was used by our team only, but a few sets were sold to the public. I'm not sure if any ever caught on fire, but that would be cool if they did.

http://www.profileracing.com/media/user/vintage_microlitehub_650.jpg

1985 profile racing team ..
Speaking of the team, here's a shot of the crew from about 1985. That's company founder Jim Alley in the driver's seat of the monster truck. I'm pretty sure he didn't own the monster truck, so don't ask if we use it to run down to the circle k for afternoon Red Bulls...

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

Lets just be clear. The low flange hubs above called featherlites, were called gyrolite hubs, as described in the tests above, and by the advertisment at the top of the page.

The high Flange Gyrolite hubs above, where called Gyrolite II in one of the tests above.

Some clear verifications would be nice. Which are they ? Gyrolights or Gyrolite II's. Are they called featherlites, or gyrolights.

More hub action

This pic was taken at the 85 NBL WOS in Orlando.  Aside from the fact that this was the day I got my white Champ Pro, all I recall vividly about this day was not making my main and this pic being set up between motos.  BTW, that's Shelby James standing on the front tire, holding onto his bike.

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

Profile Decals.

This post , and contrabution all goes to Scott Schmedes JS-44SDS (Museum) 2blader (OSBMX). He had more time then me to put this together. Props to you man.

In the comparisons the decals are numbered on back: NOS=1, JAPANBMX=2, DEEBO-1969=3, UNKNOWN=4.  The unknown is a repop I bought for $68 but a friend paid $146...ouch.  However, overall #4 is the best repop.

In pic 1 and 2 the NOS one is on top-4 on bottom

In pic 3 and 4 the NOS one is on the left-4 on the right.

The flash pix on an angle pick up the most differences regarding color transparency.  However, I will leave the color explanation right up til the end.

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

Your quote is wrong"And check the spiders. The one on the right are for 1 piece cranks"
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/Pro2.jpg

These are my spiders and first gen hutch cranks The one on the right is not for a one piece crank this spider goes with the Profile Pre Aerospeed First Gen Hutch Cranks. Take a look at the Drive Crank Arm there is a nub that fits perfect to the profile spider.

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

Thanks Jesse.,.,.,that looked like a 1 Piece spider per their ad shown here.,.,..,

http://www.profileracing.com/media/user/vintage_excellencead_500.jpg.

I can tell you that the spider on the left , in the picture you showed, does NOT fit 1 piece cranks.

So maybe the spider on the right is/was for the 1 piecers, and the cranks you shown.

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

Ok, here are a couple of Lockjaw Stems.

In talking with Profile, I really couldnt get a definate awnser onto why these stems came in 2 versions, but are the same size. Pro and Mini versions are what were advertised in the early Profile adds, but one would have to think the Mini models where smaller then the Pro models. From what I was told, it was thought that they dug out the bottom of the later stems for weight savings. I don't know.

Re: "81-86 Profile Competition Racing Products Info".

Here's what the bottoms of my Lockjaws look like.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/DSC02099.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/DSC02098.jpg

And to continue on Profile Decals, here are examples of Real , NOT Repop decals. (NO, these are not for sale)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/DSC02095.jpg

First up are the decals used for the seat post, seatpost frame tube, and handle bars. Notice the thick blue outline.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/DSC02093.jpg

Next up are the Headtube decals. Again, look at the thick blue outline, and how uneven they are.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/DSC02092.jpg

Next are the crank decals, and the handlebars decals. The crank decals come with the blue outline surronding the actuall decal. You can see one with the blue boarder removed. The 2 bigger decals you see on the left are what go on the cross bar of the handle bars. They are wraped around the bars, then cut to size.These are smaller then you repop ones you will find on ebay.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/DSC02094.jpg

And these two are Real decal packs. You got a headtube, forks, frame downtube, and handlebar decals. Why you didnt get the smaller seatpost/ seatpost tube/ handlebar decals is a mystery.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/ … e037-1.jpg

After doing more research, I have better clairification on the spiders. The spider on the right was, yes, for the 1st gen, but they also came on the 2nd gen box cranks, as shown in the ad below. Profile ran this color ad up too Oct 82 in BMXA. This ad shows the 2nd gen cranks, with the 130mm spider.
http://www.profileracing.com/media/user/vintage_excellencead_500.jpg

Now, starting in Dec 82, Profile started running the below ad for their 3rd gen cranks in BMXA. Notice the spider, its the same 130mm. This ad was ran from Dec 82, thru sometime in 86 or 87.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v733/AlcohollicA/DSC01801.jpg

So its clear to say 3rd gen crank set came out in Dec 82/Jan 83
