Profile mini chromoly female axle with pegs

Wondering how the 3/8th chromoly axle holds up to peg and peg bolts. I understand why would wouldn’t use the aluminum female.

I've run pegs on an Odyssey Hazard v3 with a chromoly female axle for years without any issues. 15mm axle with 3/8" bolts. Guessing the Profile axle is a similar diameter, but their bolts might be a little weaker if they're still using coarse thread. But hey I'd rather damage the bolt than the axle itself. If you're smooth it should be fine, if you smash pegs off stuff as aggressively as I did when I was a teenager you're going to have problems. Just make sure you have hubguards - Profiles are the only hubs I ever see with broken flanges. I had one that was missing 2 spoke holes without ever seeing a grind.

I put my nuts on that axle before it shipped, FYI

I did it for a while with the Profile shouldered peg 3/8ths bolts and bent 3-4 bolts in probably about a year period while not riding my 20 a whole lot. 

I'm super sketchy though and eat shit on handrails and clip uprights...

Is Profile still using 3/8-16? The coarse thread bolts are weaker than the fine 3/8-24 Odyssey uses...way deeper roots on the threads.

Yeh, they are 3/8 16 thread.  Funny thing is, I haven't broken any of the bolts.  I've just bent a couple near where the thread meets the bolt head.

Bikeguide is dead because of you. Sheep should stop saying server fees.

Pretty sure Kurt from BMX Union has been footing the bill for many years, bu tyour point is valid. Sheepdog has been gone for a long while, but I'd love to know what he's up to these days!

I was just joking but this used to be really great for reviews and advice on parts. I have came in and out over the years but I wish there were more resources out there

Since this place and BMX-Forum died I haven't had a lot of luck buying and selling used parts. FB Marketplace is full of morons who don't know what the top tube size means let alone how to measure it. I used to buy used bikes off of CL and sell/trade what I didn't need on here back in the day. FB groups are half full of scammers and super disogranized...

Facebook groups are insane, during and after COVID people were buying and selling each others stuff with insane inflated prices. Everyday it seems like someone complains about being scammed and every time they sent money friends and family.

So what I am saying is if someone here wants to sell me a clean 21 inch S&M made T1 Barcode with Mid bottom, I will pay an inflated price.
