Hi all, I have a hope bulb hub with a strange disc caliper (no3 i think.) the caliper doesnt bolt to the frame rather it fist over the axle and has a stablising arm that goes to the canti stud.
anyway there is a small amount of play in the bearings. I have never taken a hope hub apart before so any advice on what I need or what I need to do?
any links to replacement bearings? (the hope site just gave me a headache as I dont know if mine is the qr or 12mm)
also if I wanted to revert back to standard qr not the disc brake thing what would I need?
any tips greatly appreciated

Stick up a picture and I'll be able to tell you

Do you have normal mounts on your frame?

hi chute55uk

u have the hope no2 caliper and the according bits to fit the frame

these include
130mm rear axle and spacer for the hope bulb
hope no 2 caliper for non disc frames

if u wanted to change back from this set up to normal vbrake/std disc fitment u would need the following

hope bulb 135mm axle
hope bulb axle cover (this on urs atm disc side should look tiny )

hope that helps

any questions u can reply here or pm me for my mobile number and can talk u through it
