Hi, Am picking up a pair of Hope XC hubs up later in the week and wondered if anyone has the Hope tools needed to change the bearings?

Thanks, James.

I just use a hammer and punch to extract, and a vice to press the new ones in then tap then into final resting place with the punch. Are there even tools available for the XC hub, I know there are for the pro2

Hi,
Thanks for the info. I have found there are genuine Hope drifts to help with fitting the bearings for the older XC models (Hope Bearing support bush 6001 bearing (pair) ) and these are what I am after. Though I would try on here to see if anyone had any old ones kicking around after upgrading their old hubs.I may end up using punches and a vice if I have no luck though.

Thanks, James
