Selling my Hope hoops that were on my retro-mod Saracen Kili Comp (frame for which you can find for sale in my up to 1997 sale thread, link in my sig).

Anyway, these are black Pro2 evo hubs, with sapim spokes and 26 inch Mavic XM719 rims. Both run strong, straight, true, and are compatible with both rim and disc brake bikes. Front was used with a disc brake and the rear was a rim brake as the Saracen doesn't have disc tabs, which is why the rim colour is darker on the rear wheel in the pictures. Wheels were built at Nirvana Cycles in Westcott in the Surrey Hills. These were built quite some time before tubeless was a thing so as far as I know cannot be converted to tubeless, however a little bit of Google-Fu suggests that it isn't impossible to convert them to tubeless with the right rim tape and tyres. That said, you would do that at your own risk! Pictures can be found here:

I am looking for £150 + postage for these. Which brings me nicely onto said postage....

Boxed up they weigh in at 4.5kg with dimensions of (W)30x(H)63x(L)62 and the best deal I could find was using Parcel2Go who quoted £8.82 (incl. VAT) to collect from me (using Parcel Force) and deliver to UK mainland which included "£20 Protection". Total cost including post would be £158.82 if I were to use that service. I am however, prepared to let you organise your own courier to collect from me if you can get this cheaper or with a firm that you would prefer to use. No international postage, sorry.

Any questions, please ask!


Sold Items

One set of LX v brake arms. No mounting hardware or blocks. Cost? Send me a wedge of bike stickers or something to start stickering up my park work stand 8) Swapped for some cool stickers!

Shimano XT M750 rear mech. Used, but very clean and in excellent working order, medium cage. £15

Race Face Ride XC cranks. Used for several hundred miles but plenty of life in them, not the most glamorous chainset but damn reliable, never missed a beat with me and includes BB to go with it, compatible with 68 and 72 BB shells. Tiny little heel rub marks but nothing major. £30

Let me see what stickers you have and maybe we can just do a straight swap for the brake arms. You have first dibs on them my friend :wink:
