Profile flush mount washers
« on: June 12, 2017, 12:06:30 PM »
Hi,

I somehow lost one of the aluminum washers during my spring cleaning/rebuild
Does anyone know off-hand if these are standard washers, and if I could just buy 1 from a hardware site?

I know this sounds incredibly cheap but I don't want to put any more money into the bike than I have to because my body's so old I feel any moment could be my last (I tweaked my hamstring for a couple months getting out of my chair in the office haha)

I don't think you'll be able to find these at a hardware store.  You're probably going to have to bite the bullet and buy some from Profile.

Yeah I'm going to do that, especially after I remembered how cool they were replacing my cranks when they developed a wobble a while back, I'll just buy a case of busch instead of guiness and there's the cash right there haha

I replaced mine with KHE ones when my broke.
In bmx they are quite standard I would say. Talk to your lbs and they might be able to sort you out with something that works for less than 19 dollars.

you can make one out of jb weld. you just liberally apply it before the bolt. when it hardens it retains the flushmount shape. ive been doing this to 19 mm cranks for a while.
