Got this Hope front hub, but don't know what model it is.
Would like to know the spec for the dtswiss spoke calculator.
It has a larger flange diameter than a ti~glide and strangley has only 6 teeth for the disc rotor interface rather than the 15 on the ti~glide.
Anyone know?
cheers al.

its the first gen hope bulb, big uns little brother. just use a steel rule or vernier to measure the flanges and offsets. thats the whole point of the spo-calc type websites, you can just type in the measurements.

with the added oddness that it has the disc adapter on it so most of the measurements will bear little relation to the common hubs held on the DT calculator. As Kanerdog says, your going to have to measure this one.

was originally purchased in '96, but resigned to a parts box in the garage until this spring :shock:
needed a bike to ride at mm09, that encompassed the retro brief, but still had decent reliable brakes (i'm a little short on bottle on the fast downhills :lol: ), so i dug these out.
a patient wait on ebay, could dig one out, but Hope don't make them anymore, probably since '97 (judging by the rate of change in kit them days :D )
cheers al.
