I have a full Hope C2 disc setup for sale

I think they are number 3 calipers, and have the pro levers

Rotors are in decent condition, and the pads are not very old at all

They need a full bleed, as currently they have very little fluid in them, I tried to bleed them, but didnt do it properly, so currently they dont function, but worked very well before I had a play (not to self, leave things alone)

Pictures will be up tonight or tomorrow


Im asking £70 plud postage for them

Do the pistons fully withdraw? , i.e. lie flush with the body of the caliper.
What is the condition like on the inside behind the pads?


Bit of a C2 lover :oops: Im looking for a good set that is actually working

Have to say - one of the the best things I ever did was put C2s on my RC200 instead of the Enduros that were on it before.

ok, here is the deal with them

I bough them for my Marin, they worked fine when I bought them only a couple of months ago, but I couldnt get them to work properly on my bike due to clearance problems.
I stupidly decided that it may be an idea to let a little fluid out incase I could open them up a bit more. All this did was mean that when I pulled the lever, nothing happened.
Must need a bleed, my brother tried to do this, but it hasnt made any difference, but then again, neither of us were aware of the long winded bleeding system for these Hopes.
So, I assume that all they need is bleeding properly to be fully functional again like they were last week!

Does this make sense?

They have some superficial scratches, but they are by no means in bad condition.
Here are some pics:

I will do them for £75 posted

I am open to offers on these chaps, as I appreciate that they need a good bleed and a bit of fluid afterwards
