    Hope ProII - rear hub conversion

    I'm contemplating switching from a 2010 to a 2012/13 Endorphin and trying to work out what parts I could swap over.

    I know the new frame requires a 142x12 hub and my current Hope PROII is 135/QR but

    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=68578 shows two different product IDs for "12mm Bolt Thro" v "X12 Thro"

    I'm not anticipating using a Maxle rear end, in case this is relevant so which one would I need to order?

    Thanks

    you want x12 that is for 142mm rear ends. there is a standard 12mmx135mm axle too.

    Here is the one you need:

    BTI | Hope Pro2 R hub convert kit, 12x142mm T-A

    The conversion is pretty easy and you might look at replacing bearings while you have the hub apart.

    yes, it is called the x12 conversion in that description from bti as well. same part from crc

    the "x12" designation refers to syntace's name for the 142mm system.

    I been into the same questions before,
    ProII will takes a lot of things to change not only the axle if you wish to convert it into 142x12
    Only the ProII Evo is convertible with a simple axle or adaptor change,
    When trails gets tougher, Just stand up and deliver.

    If it is a Pro II EVO than this is what you need:

    https://www.bti-usa.com/public/item/HT5863

    at least that is how I understand it from reading this thread:

    Hope Pro 2 Evo conversion 12mm

    at least that is how I understand it from reading this thread:
    That link above is only the adaptor for 12x135 converting to 142,
    The link of Qbert below is the axle conversion from 9/10x135QR into 12x142

    at least that is how I understand it too
