Are you referring to a 3-speed hub or one of their hubs with 3-piece axles?

3 speed cassette hub i guess you'd call it. this one:



also, whether i got this or just a single speed profile hub; are profile hubs considered to be one of the best out there?

do riders often switch their cog for different tracks? are they easier to change than a MTB (not that they're hard) or is it the same?

thanks

The song in your sig is, Running up that hill. By Unknown Artist. I'm gonna go with Kate Bush, Because she also has some others by her, and they sound similar.

It also depends on whether you have a freewheel or a casset. The casset is (I find) A bit easier to change on a bmx them mtb because your only putting on 1 ring, not three and a big group of them.

Profile is known for quality products. I don't imagine that the range on that is worth the hassle though, especially if your frame has short stays.

It plummets even further down when a forum moderater uses "it's" in palce of what should be "its". What a sad sad day.

Too bad you misspelled "place" and "moderator", in addition to forgetting to place a comma between "sad" and "sad".
