    Hope's are for sure. I am running them on my new Podium, and so is Dusty.

    Kings should be available soon.
    If jackasses could fly this place would be an airport.

    I'm out if the loop, what's the purpose of a 157mm rear end?

    Word. Cause 3mm will make a noticeable difference. What a waste of resources... Fahn

    Well it does prevent 'I'm cold it's dark and I can't get the f#!%*ng axle to go in' syndrome. That's got be worth a new set of end caps right?

    how the hell is it a "standard" if there are 12 different sizes?

    I'd much prefer to see axle diametre size go up, ie 20mm
    I'm stuck with a 20mm proprietary hub.

    DT Swiss.
    The 12x142 adapters used with a 150 hub = 157.

    Same way Hope Pro Evo2's are converted, FWIW.

    So pretty much to make it easier to remove your backs wheel and put back on.
    Should just leave it at 135 and 150mm.

    "They" say the increased length makes it stiffer than standard. I don't buy into that arguement, because of front hubs. To make it stiffer, you would increase the diametre, not the length.
    To me, it screams "fad".

    IH used a 160mm in '03 with a 100mm bb. The idea was to get rid of the dish of the rear wheel by spreading the flanges further apart. In recent years though, I've seen hub companies move the flanges inward(ala150 hubs) to line up the spokes angle to eliminate dish. But with the spokes so straight, I think it isn't as stiff laterally and it only leaves wasted space between the disc and the flange. If they adopt this new idea, it better be for spreading the flanges and not just to make more schitt to market. Ttyl, Fahn

    even to a history major with only a rudimentary understanding of physics this makes no sense. the longer something is the more torque you can apply, the more torque the easier it is to bend.

    Larger diametre means more stiffness, same applies to fork stanchions.
    Maybe learn a bit more physics.
    ummm, i just agreed with your previous post, read much?
