    Torque Caps for Hope Hubs

    For those with Hope hubs and wondering when/if Hope will be making Torque Caps compatible with Rockshox Lyrik - the answer (via an email today) is that they will be available from next month!

    Oh cool, cheers for the info dude. This is especially good news for those wanting to go boost on either the Lyrik or the Pike, as they both use them. Not sure about the non-boost Pike though...

    I think that a lot of the RS forks for 2016 are Torque.

    Has anyone gotten their hands on these? I've been asking around the LBS and they don't know what I'm talking about yet, and then I emailed Hope and they basically told me to go talk to my LBS to order them. Nowhere to be found online either.

    Have also been trying to find these. Sent the same email to Hope, got the same reply. Fitting a front wheel with regular ends into a torque cap fork is as much of a pain as the internet said it would be.

    I tried Chain Reaction and their response was
    "As these are only new from Hope, they have not been released by Hope and unfortunately we are not given any advanced information on what will be coming to the website, but as we do list a range of Hope products, this could come to the website."

    I am also waiting on these. How much of a pain are we talking? Does it work properly without torque caps?

    It works normally once installed, but getting the wheel into the fork is a 3/7 pain in the ass, where before it was 0/7.

    Sweet, thank you.

    I found out you can order them through Hope USA at 832-663-9708. I also have a few more emails to other companies and will update when I hear back.

    Has anyone gotten their hands on these? Tried talking to the local Hope distributor here and they don't have it on their pricelist yet. Gah...

    I tried a couple of local bike shops without any luck so I will have to try the hope USA number.
