    Wiggle deal on Hope pro 2 evo wheels

    I just thought I would post what I think is a great deal on Hope Pro 2 evo wheels from Wiggle. I purchased the set for $332.40 as they are 21% off right now and use code 10-off for an extra 10% off.

    Thanks for the heads up. Just picked up some Fulcrum Red Power 29XL for $244 shipped. Lowest price found by FAR.

    Next time you order from across the pond check with your bank or credit union about paying in their currency . My credit union charges 1% of the sale but saves me an extra 7-9% depending on the bike shop.

    Great wheels. Handmade in Italy. I got them two weeks ago.However I regret getting Hope Pro 2 Evo wheels. I did not expect the freehub to be so weak.

    How do you like them? I've only had Alu spokes on my road bike but these seem beefy enough.

    Can you define 'weak' please?

    I don't see many reliability issues on Hope hubs, if you're blowing up freehubs it might be worth contacting Hope about it.

    I ordered one of the flow front wheels. They come with QR and 20mm adapters, and I need 15mm. So, if anyone's in the same boat and ordered one of the lighter rims, but needs 20mm then pm me and let's trade.

    Hi Fix,

    I was referring to the durability of a freehub body. It is very weak/fragile. After 100 miles on asphalt with Sram PG-990 it looks bad. I am 6'1" and weigh 164 pounds.The wheels roll smooth and bearings seem to be good but there are some other minor issues. Firstly, the rim tape is of poor quality. Secondly, the wheels came with no skewers. Thirdly, a piece of metal came loose inside the rim. It is used during the assembly and was not secured properly. I contacted Hope and they said to use some super glue. I understand it can be fixed but I paid almost $400 for these wheels so I would expect a better quality. I will see how they hold up after 1000 miles and pass judgement.

    Thank you.

    +1 on the freehub body. Any T6 freehub with 15 degrees of engagement is going to have this problem, not just hopes. Mine got chewed up because I was stupid, my cassette had a steel carrier but I know the pg-990 has an alloy carrier so I am suprised yours got chewed already.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I ordered on Wednesday and received them today. Now that's what I call expedited shipping!!

    Let me guess, Mavic EX721 rims?

    I had the same thing happen on my Hope Pro 2/EX721 wheel combo that I bought from wiggle last year. Quick search online yielded the same result, took the tape off and applied some Crazy Glue, and it was fixed. Never rattled again, with lots of abusive riding.
    And it turns out it's a common thing with at least Mavic rims.

    As for the quality, this season I'm on Sun-Ringle Charger Expert 29er wheelset that I paid $300 for, came with skewers, complete Stan's kit to go tubeless, tape already applied and I'm loving them. For my riding, I see no difference in quality between the two to be honest with you and I paid $400+ for my Hopes. And the Sun-Ringle freehub is almost as loud as the Hope, one thing I didn't want to give up lol.

    No, Stan's Crest. I heard good things about those Charger wheels.

    Wow, ordered on the 25th, delivered in Canada on the 30th. And I didn't pay the expedited fee.
    I'll order again from them.

    Got my wheels yesterday, all is good. I ordered the wheels from Wiggle, and a floor pump from Performance on the same day. Still haven't got the pump. Not complaining about Performance, but what service from Wiggle! Great price and crazy fast shipping from UK all the way to Chicago.

    Thanks for the tip, O.P.!

    Snagging some wheels built with Crest rims for $368 with free shipping after bending an axle on my rear XT hub.

    How long does it usually take to receive stuff from them here in the US? I'm in Ohio.

    I received my wheels in 4 business days. I live in GA and found their shipping time to be extremely fast!

    Did you any of you US boys get hit with duty fees? I ordered once from On One in the UK and had to pay. I'll never do that again since it washes out any savings and is a plain rip-off to pay for friggin nothing.

    ^ Never from wiggle.co.uk or CRC. Ordered a wheelset from wiggle, and a few bits and pieces from CRC over the years.

    But did get hit with fees from ordering an On-One frame.

    Thats exacty what I ordered. A frame + crazy duty fee. Not worth it!! Strange why Wiggle and CRC didn't get duties. Or is it because of it being a frame, much larger/oversized?

    The wheelset from wiggle was quite big as well.

    On-One used a different shipment courier and ultimately that's what led me to paying fees.

    Now I'm hopeful I'll be able to ride this weekend... I got an email that they're "ready to be posted" and that my order was finished processing. Assuming they ship today, that means they might be here Friday. I can only hope.








    Pun intended.

    Just FYI... it can happen. I've ordered a handful of times from CRC and never got dinged, but my buddy ordered a couple pair of shoes and had to pay duty on them. Seems like there is little rhyme or reason - just un-luck of the draw

    Uh oh. Now I read this, right after i ordered from Wiggle

    HOpefully I won't get duties. I don't get it. I ordered once from Thailand, no duties. But it was a small package of OE Shimano parts. Then get hit with duties for the frame....and it was expensive too, like $90 !!

    Duties and tax rules vary by country, but I know for Canada that bike parts are generally duty free, whereas whole bikes and bike frames are subject to duty. We still pay sales tax on items imported, but probably 50% of the packages I get come through without getting dinged for this.

    I've stopped ordering from Wiggle because the last few times I ordered from them they were just a bit too exacting in their export documentation... things like declaring a bike light as lighting equipment and some bike shorts and gloves as clothing... both of which are dutiable categories it seems. That's an extra 13% or more (depending on the country of origin and the category) that I had to pay before the post office would hand over my parcel

    Now Chain Reaction Cycles tends to declare everything as "bike parts" which makes for a much happier (less expensive) import experience.

    I just got my evo 2 wheels yesterday with the mavic 721's. They are pretty light but I got hit with the customs fee. The shipping was free so I guess I can't really complain. It took exactly a week to get to AZ. The wheels are nice but weren't built very well, a lot of the spokes are loose and are making noise. I had to tighten them up.

    Gee. That's not good if you had to retension them. I guess that's why they're low priced. Quick build but not quality. I'm curious what your duty fee was too. I ordered some wheels and I suppose I'll get hit with duties too

    I passed on the straight pull version based on cost and difficulty finding replacement spokes if one breaks.

    Luckily I need to buy two sets of Hope Hoops so total is $649.35 with the SAVE-BIG promotional voucher that will expire on October 11th. One for my buddy and one for my partner's bike. Do you know of someone that wants a set?
