Hi
i have a hope "BigUn" hub, i am using it for my kona manomano,
but i'd like to keep my 9 speed setup but the cassette body just wont take it.
so i am wondering if there is a cassette body i can purchase anywhere?
or if anybody knows if its possible to get a 9 speed cassette on the BigUns?
i believe these are the older versions.
i have contacted hope and i await a reply but i want to know if anybody here can help

do you know whether you have an old hub or a newer one?

As far as I am aware all biguns should cater for a 8/9 speed. If I recall correctly they came in in 1997 by which time 7 speed setups were all but faded out amongst the upper end stuff..

It would surprise me if they made one with a 7 speed cassette body.

My Chameleon build has Big Un's.....no issues with a 9 speed block, although it did look like it was going to struggle until I did the cassette lock ring up...then perfect.
