    Hope Pro 2 Evo

    Looking to order a rear....

    1. Anyplace sell with steel free hub body?

    2. Anyplace sell with Bolt on axle option?

    3. Anyplace sell bolt on axle separately? Jenson only sells for non-evo version.

    ASSuming that since you're asking in the SS forum you're intended use is on a SS, so what you're looking for is not the Pro2 EVO, it's the Pro2 EVO SS/Trials hub which comes with a steel freehub body, bolt on axle setup and abbreviated freehub body.

    Actually I'm looking for the the standard cassette hub. I've bought a few others and was able to spec the steel free hub.

    It will be for SS.

    Oh, well then you'll have to look around or look to buy the hub and then parts needed to convert to what you want, can't say I've seen the configuration you're looking for readily available while browsing.

    That's the weird thing. I've ordered multiple Hopes from LBS and just asked for stainless hub and it was no big deal. However when looking online it's a big mystery.

    I gotta ask, why would you not want the single speed trials hub if it is for single speed? Unless you are going to also use it on another bike.

    With the geared version you get more space to adjust chainline. And although most of my bikes are SS, it's an added bonus to be able to run gears if needed. Better for resale too. The only advantage the Trials has is higher engagement and IMO that's negligible.

    Why in the hell do people always think about resale?
    Buy the best product that suits your needs, then if by some chance you have used it enough or want something different, then try and sell it if you want, but don't compromise the purchase for resale.

    You CAN run gears on an SS/Trials hub, I did it for over 7 years so I had a dishless and stronger wheel (that is the real difference between the SS/Trials and normal hubs), it worked fantastic and lots of others have done this as well.

    Oh and what do you mean you get more space to adjust chainline, how frikin far would you want your chainline moved that as SS/short freehub wouldn't accommodate??

    ^ this!

    Single speeding is what the SS/trials hub is designed to do. it builds a stronger wheel, and has more than enough adjustability for chainline. plus you get the steel freehub, and bolt on package in one. should you choose to sell it later, you should have no trouble selling it. there will always be a demand for high quality products.

    yes you can do it with a standard hub, but not as good IMO.

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    I'm not looking to belabor a debate that has been hashed many times over.

    Just looking for answers to my original question.

    I've not seen it online in the configuration you would like. It is my assumption that you would need to order the steel freehub separately, but you may be able to find a thru axle version. You should order through your LBS if it hasn't been a problem in the past or possibly go through Hope directly?

    That said, I agree with the other fellas above, get the trials SS version. However, if you want one wheelset for several bikes ok, but realize that you're on the couch if something snaps.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I was able to get mine with the alloy freehub body from Chain Reaction with the 10mm bolt through axle.

    Using a wide body cog, no gouging on the freehub body.
    MTBR is serious stuff.

    Maybe give Monk a Moo a call and see if they can get you what you want. I've also order directly from Hope Tech USA when I need small parts or conversion kits.
