Hello everyone,

I am now the proud owner of a NOS Hope Ti-Glide to match the Suspension Front on my Bontrager (yey!), I'm running black X517 rims at the moment and would like to find todays equivalent so they look like a matching pair, after browsing the CRC website the XC717 looks the same....can anyone confirm this for me?

This hub now forms the basis of my next project, gearing the Race :D

Cheers
Stu

I may be wrong but I think the 717 is the new 517...

717 is the new 517. But two versions one for rim brakes and one for discs.
