Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

If they have a euro BB conversion kit, you can totally do it. It's been done with Profiles plenty o' times.

On Amazon, of all places.

I know someone here is running Profiles on their fixed. I remember they're using a Profile chainring for that extra burly effect as well.

yo, just get any euro bmx crank, and you're golden, especially if you're putting it on an iro or something.

Just watch your chainline.

dnas comp has the euro bb kit for around 40 bucks for the splined style spindle then you just use spacers to make the chainline like you would as if they were on a bmx...... the euro kit = english 68mm bb there is no italian or french in the bmx world
