    Giant Tracker Giant Sport QR141, loose ball to HOPE Pro 4

    Hello,
    New to the community so hope you can help,
    I have just ordered a Giant Stance 2 29er, I would love to upgrade the rear hub first to a HOPE Pro 4, I can't find any instruction as to the compatibility or difficulty of the change, can anyone shed some steer on this please?
    Thanks in advance

    Upgrading the hub involves unlacing all the spokes from the wheel to put the new hub in. The new hub will likely require new spokes as well, unless by some chance the hub flange height is exactly the same between those two hubs. Compatibility wise, you need to look at the hub standard for the bike - is it boost? Get a boost hub. 142? Get 142. Ultimately, you may find it easier and less expensive to buy a new wheel unless you have a truing stand and a spoke tension gauge to rebuild the wheel correctly once you've put the hub in. Alternatively, most shops charge between $50-$100 to lace a wheel.

    Thanks for your response, what about the freehubs? the website shows the cassette compatibility with the supplied free hubs but does not list the SRAM SX Eagle, 11x50 which comes standard on this bike, does that mean I need to change that too?

    You'll need the Shimano HG hub for the SX cassette.
    You may as well upgrade to a 10mm through axle while you're at it.
