This IS the #1 place in LA to go if you want to build up a Trick bike. They also build up some pretty sweet wheels and know their shit..

"I am running a set on my track bike and have been running the same bolts (3/8-16") on my bmx bike for eight months. The large head (22mm) fits perfect with the insurance tabs on forks and gives plenty of surface area to grab your frame ends tight. The broach is 6mm for convenience (hence the 6 in Bluesix) and helps reduce the amount of tools needed to work on your bike. Speaking of this, we are also working on similar bolts that fit most square taper cranks. They will be the same material and also feature a 6mm broach. With these bolts in your wheels and cranks you can remove that 8mm from your carry bag and work on your bike with less tools.
As with all Bluesix Bikes these will be under the same warranty offered on all of their components."

- I've heard of the cones breaking on the Profile fixed hubs, but these are the most detailed photos I've seen of the occurrence. It seems Profile has come up with a solution to this problem by offering a 3/8 axle conversion kit (found here) priced at $55 per axle; not including titanium bolts (+ $33 per pair). That is quite a bit of dough to throw down! According to my source, this hub was only 2 months old when it failed.

Oh my gawd! I don't what these guys have got planned but it better some Marty Mcfly shit! Here's the deets.......
The Hundreds to release a collection in a cross-industry collaboration with automotive company DeLorean Motor Co. The iconic gull-wing car produced by DeLorean is known mostly as a one-trick pony with their DMC-12 model firmly cementing its place in pop culture history thanks to its appearance in the Back to the Future franchise. Bobby Hundreds offers us a look into the backend aspect of the DeLorean Motor Co. which is currently situated in Humble, Texas. Events are planned for both The Hundreds Los Angeles and The Hundreds San Francisco locations.
