if you have a BMX style press in bb shell, why not go for the age old, classic, classy and sexy Profile crank with matching Profile Imperial ring

truly a classic, and will suit the bake better than any of the cranks you have listed above

Actually funny you should mention Profile, I was looking at those as well, they would be in my top 4.

The young bloke at the bike shop told me me about Profile and it seems that they are excellent quality. I do like the look of them a lot but not sure about the imperial ring but there was another ring I liked on the Profile site, so it is also an option.

My decision isn’t made by any means but thanks for the reminder about Profile
