The end spacers are for XC/mono/bulb so are all the one size. They sell them as drive side and non drive side @135mm

and

As you see in the descript' the end spacers list as all fitting on all models. Same part number

Out of interest can you measure them for me ?.

That’s weird I could have sworn when I was trying them they where different sizes, unfortunately I won’t be able measure anything as I’m away for another 10 days. But I will also try and measure the “135mm” to see if it’s right. Any idea what the tolerance is for the 135mm?

So thought I would update this as I have just been in contact with hope. So after exchanging a couple of emails and me sending them some measurements it looks like the axle is way out compared to what they have there so I asked where I could buy a new axle? Bearing I mind I was up front and said it was second hand and the hub is 14 years old. They said give us your address and we will pop one in the post foc.

Once again hope customer service rocks. So will update once I have installed new axle.

Thanks

Tim
