This is probably really obvious and I should know the answer (especially as I've done the job before :facepalm: )
I'm trying to remplace the bearings on my hope ti-glide and can't get the drive side one out.
Am I right in thinking it comes out the on the drive side as you'd expect, ie knocked from the inside out?
It seems a stupid question as I type but I've been "drifting" it quite enthusiastically and it's not budging so thought I'd check :oops: :oops: :oops:

You're doing it right by the sounds of it - but they can be stubborn - particularly if the person who put it there didn't grease it first.

Just so you can double check.

and the slightly new version of the hub

and probably the best version (will put in the archive at some point)
viewtopic.php?p=1861806#p1861806
with extra pictures and detail.

Try leaving it on a radiator with wd40 etc on it.

I had to really welly one of mine to get the buggers out.
It's hard to give it such a hit when you know the tendency for the flanges to crack.. but it didn't
