    Rear wheel newbie...

    Hello all, I have a '13 Anthem X 29er 2 with a stock drive train (SRAM PG 1030 11x36, 10-Speed) and am looking at a new rear wheel. I decided (as long as it's compatible) to get the Hope Hoops Pro2 Evo SP 29er Rear Wheel ZTR Flow EX, mainly because it's within my budget.

    So my question is, will this be a direct replacement or do I need a new cassette to go with it?

    The Hope Pro2 hub is compatible with a Sram or Shimano 9/10 speed cassette and in your case you have a Sram 10 speed cassette so you could swap it to the new wheel.

    Flow is a heavy rim, I would rather go with something lighter such as crest or arch ex for an xc bike.

    Hope hub is convertible so you are safe, but make sure it is delivered with 135x9mm end caps.

    Thanks guys. MarinCRO, being 215lbs I'd rather go heavy and strong than light and weak, plus I already have the same front wheel so a match is a bonus lol.
