    Hub Upgrade for Spesh Enduro

    I have a 2010 Spesh Enduro Comp. I would like a faster engagement than the stock Shimano M525 SL Hub. I wanna say its about 20 degrees right now before it catches. I know I9 and CK will no doubt offer a faster engagement, but they are more than I want to spend. I was looking at the Hope Pro 2 hubs. Would the Hope hubs provide a faster engagement than my current stock hub?

    I was thinking since I am upgrading the hubs, might as well just build a whole new wheel. So I looking at the Hope Pro 2 hubs, with Stans Flow rims. I know CRC has Hope Hoops but I'm thinking of getting white Flows and red hubs, so I would need to do custom. Would it be worth it to upgrade to this wheel set over my stock, or not enough and save my money for something else.

    I am 170 geared, ride aggressive AM.

    My Hope Pro2 has only 24pt engagement. Hadley 72pt would be the way to go for 3x the engagement points and less money than CK.

    The newer XT hubs are cheap and are 36pt, I think....
