OCP, just happened upon this, although I'm sure/hope you get a cheaper alternative

I think I'm going to take the jump and go with discs on my Rock Lobster.

Any idea if there would be interest here or elsewhere in swaps so I can get up and running with minimal or no expense?

Going to go with mechanical preferably Avid BB7s as I can keep my XTR M950 levers which I love.

I'd be looking for a trade of my M960 V's which are in very good condition with only one small scratch on one of the V's and the original shoes in the same pretty shiny finish, and a pair of Bontrager Superstock wheels with black rims, 24 radial front and 28 traditional rear, light fast spinning wheels. They have Bontrager hubs but I'm not sure who made them for them though. I know Chris King built some hubs for them but these aren't those ones.

I'd also need an A2Z adapter for the rear.

I would try selling but with my luck I'd end up with a lengthy period trying to find the replacement parts.

What are the things to look out for when buying used Hope hubs?
For instance does this look OK? :?
