Found an old hope Pro but its 385g so not much better.


Which one is that? I never could keep up with the hope models, the new ones or the old


Actually its an old XC, I just checked on the Hope website, Its used and probably wants bearings.

Hi Sorry to butt in on your post, but if that hope hub is going to be left in a box neglected and unappreciated, i could possibly give it a loving home. I think it would be happy and content laced to one of the rims im having off you.


If Rick docent fancy it I will be selling it, I might have a matching front.

Ah, I Know the one now. Not super super light but decent enough hubs and lighter than my current xt benchmark. 386 rear and 206 front according to the Web.

They would be good if they are in nice tidy condition, and especially if there's a pair. any chance of some piccies?

hubs arrived from Biffa today, many thanks I reckon they will do nicely :D

Original criteria:
:arrow: disc ready, ideally 6-bolt but others might work =Yep!
:arrow: standard mtb 135mm OLD =Yep!
:arrow: lightweight =Yep! , well not bad!
:arrow: in good condition, used is fine but must look tidy and work properly =Yep!

ideally:
:arrow: standard cassette fitting but not essential. =Yep!
:arrow: black, maybe silver. other colours are not off the table but would take some thinking about. =Yep!
