The black hubbed Hope wheels I bought for my Merlin project appear to have a 130mm rear spacing...but why on a disc 26" wheel?
I am confused

Yeah is the seller going to refund you some as he didnt specify this?

At least you will then give it a good check over.

WEell seems like agreeing to refund and receiving refund are two completely seperate things with this seller.
No refund. no comms and now I find the wheel needs redishing too!
Thank you very much garibaldireject :evil:

They were a good price for sure but they are being a pain in the arse to get right...I would have rather paid £50 more and have a set ready to go...like the red ones I sold :wink:
