    142mm Pro 2 Evo rear hub with 142+ dropouts?

    Will a wheelset with a 142mm Hope Pro 2 rear hub work on a Specy bike with 142+ dropouts?

    Yes. You will need to adjust brake cable and the rear derailleur limit screws. I have been using a wheelset with Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs on my 2012 Stumpy since December, without any problems.

    Please tell me why you'd need to adjust the brake cable? The derailleur cable and limit screws=YES, the brake caliper position=YES, but the brake cable=NO.

    Right. Sorry. You'll possibly need to adjust the cable on the rear derailleur. Shifter cable, not brake.

    I have Hope Pro 2 as rear hub. If fit my 2013 Stumpy FSR 29 without issues. I haven't needed to make any RD changes. It was a perfect swap!
