Profile Hub Shell For Nankai
« on: October 23, 2005, 11:04:29 PM »
Profile aluminum hub shells for use with the Nankai will be available in about a month. The standard Nankai shell is made of steel so if you don´t want to get one of the new lighter freecoasters ( KHE or Ares ) this is a good way to make your Nankai lighter. The shells will be available in many colors. They are going to be available at flatlandfuel in a couple of weeks.



Nice to see that profile is supporting flatland, too!

Update: Seems like some people haven´t already heard of the Arestic Boo freecoaster. Here are some information:

Weight:  approx. 500g
Holes:  36/48
Driver:  9T

So what exactly is that hub shell for? Is it just to make your F/C lighter thats all? Or is there more to it? About how much is it going to cost?

What does Quamen have to do with a hub shell?

I'm more interested in this Ares Freecoaster since it has 9t driver option, that's really sick.

Arestic Boo Freecoaster is available in both 9t and 11t... so the 11t one is well suited for a 24t sprocket.
