    Hope Pro 2 hub dimensions

    Does anyone have dimensions for Hope Pro 2 hubs, both front and rear. I'm trying to calculate some spoke lengths and can't find this info anywhere. Hope's website is unhelpful and my other go-to source, the DT Swiss calculator, doesn't seem to list other manufacturer's hubs anymore.

    The Wheelpro Spoke Calculator has info on a number of hubs, including Hope hubs:
    http://www.wheelpro.co.uk/spokecalc/ You'll first need to click on the "Hubs" button, and then select your hub(s) from the list.

    Front:
    Flange Diameter - 56(L) 54(R)
    Offset (center-to-flange) - 19.5(L) 34(R)
    spoke hole diameter - 2.6
    Rear:
    Flange Diameter - 56(L) 54(R)
    Offset (center-to-flange) - 31.5(L) 20.5(R)
    spoke hole diameter - 2.6

    These dimensions were accurate for Pro IIs bought from CRC in the summer of '09.

    Just purchased a Hope Pro 2 rear hub 135mm QR and trying to calculate spoke length.

    any have the current specs on Hope Pro 2 rear hub? Especially, the spoke hole diameter?

    Hope websites does not list it. Thanks.

    Yup... those dimensions are still good... and they're good for the new Evo hubs too.

    I got those figures form the DT Swiss spoke calculator and confirmed with RogerM's calculator in 2008.

    So the pro 2 and pro 2 EVOs are essentially the same except for the 'upgrade' in the bearings? And the various conversion kits available for the Pro 2 are also usable on the EVOs?

    No, evo conversion involves just changing the end caps. No axle removal.

    I have a new QR Hope Pro 2 EVO rear hub conversion kit if anyone wants ($12+ shipping).

    I also found this on the Hope website:

    hopetech.com/database/2010%20HUB%20offset%20and%20pcd.pdf

    Sorry it's not a link but I don't have enough posts yet to post those ... I'm working on it!

    Right.

    Front hub is identical save for uprated bearings, you can even use the old axle converter end caps.

    Rear hub is different to the old Pro 2, it has bigger bearings and a thicker rear axle. Now axle fittings are just changed by swapping end caps like the front hub, but you can't use the conversion kits from old Pro 2s as they don't fit.

    Freehub body, pawls and outer dimensions are the same as before.
