Shoutout to Profile not giving a shit anymore. I'd look elsewhere. The last few times I've contact them for support it's been like calling a phone company to cut the cable.

They are not the company they use to be.

I9, however, is bloody solid good. Have the Hydra hubs personally and they are sublime.
did they charge you any import fees coming across the border??

Yep, they do. They also don't have a Canadian distro set up, and have no intention on doing so in the future.

More or less a "we don't care for your business" style response when I asked.

I think you're unfortunately out of luck at that price point.

Gold is a super hard colour to find.

Sorry I forgot to put the usd as yes lots of hubs are out of the 200 cad price rand

Ah that sucks dude. My lbs sorted me elites on my old bike. But I genuinely never had a single issue with them with 3 years of ownership, hell I didn't even service them once. Kind of why I'm so interested in purchasing a set for the new bike.

Trust me when I say you wont be disappointed by a 101 or hydra hub. The pickup on the hydra is absolutely nuts.

Don't feel like you're missing out, 100% of all my profile hubs (2 of them) both skip all the time, and my I9 torch hub has been flawless.

You've definitely got me thinking about it now.

The plus side is i'd much rather buy a wheel set that's already built up.

which of the rims would you suggest to opt for on their configurator?

Just built up a Hydra front and rear hub set for $650, what makes their rims and spokes so special!?

Might get the hubs and lace them up to Flow mk3's!

Hello guys. I did a dj/street build a month ago in a almost free old bike, and I wanted to upgrade to a better suspension.
The fork on the bike is a 50cm Chinese type fork.(the bike is wheel24)
Can you guys that know more than I , say good 80-100mm forks to put on my bike, maybe I’ll have to get a 26 wheel fork right? The price was like 50-200€ but if you guys think that there’s something much better and good I could get little more money. (The fork has to be new)
Cheers (you can see my bike in the profile)

Enduro 305 rims are the go to for DJ/Slope. These wheels are pricey because they are high quality. All the spokes are made from aluminum. Makes for a very strong and relatively light wheel. Very rare to break spokes aswell
