    Hope pro 2 evo front hub any good?

    when I squeeze the end caps with my thumb and finger and rotate the hub with the other hand, there's a metal on metal grinding feeling as the retaining clips and caps rub along the bearings and hub body, instead of the silky smooth feel of bearings.

    I have another 20mm hub I could use. Its 100g heavier and (I thought) lower quality) but the bearings roll smooth as silk. I'm tempted to return the Hope and live with the extra weight.

    In your experience is the Hope front hub a smooth, top quality item once its installed?
