Ive bought a set of Hope brakes, advertised as Mono Minis. They are gunmetal in colour with added carbon levers and union jack resovior covers. Ive bought some mono mini bore caps but they are bigger than the ones on mine! So, which would I buy to fit these brakes?

Ps, want them in red!

That is an odd set, old(er) 2007 levers but with newer X2/V2 calipers, I can't find em listed anywhere.

You deffo need either X2 or V2, probably X2 ones.

Thanks for the replys, Ive sorted some X2 bore caps out, they are green to match the new green union jack resovior caps Ive bought, should look good.

No the ones linked have the x2 calipers. The mono mini pro didnt that i know of? A mate had one and that was standard mini caliper as far as im aware - albeit gunsmoke.

Not sure what I have, Hope the X2 caps fit as the mono mini ones are too big. :(
