I'm after a blue hope front hub or wheel to match my rear (QR). Initially I thought it was a ti-glide - but its a solid blue colour and had a removable disc mount (currently on a Rhyno lite rim). I'm happy if its not a 100% match as long as it sits well with it. Let me know what you've got.

Have a blue one but as it’s my only bulb front it wouldn’t be cheap

Dyna-ti thanks for letting me know what I’m looking for it’ll be a big help. If you could post a photo of the front that’d be great.

Boxxer - dare I ask what not cheap is? Thanks.

Are you using discs?, if not this could be an option

If not I have a pair of blue bulbs built up with matching rims

Bhill22 - no I’m running rim brakes, so yes that could work.

How much are you asking for the hub? Also, out of curiosity more than anything, what are you asking for the wheels?

shame it's a front you're after. I've got a really nice blue rear Mono, similar to your but rim brake specific
