    Which rear hub?

    Afternoon everyone. Looking to replace the stock wheelset on my GT Peace 9R SS and was wondering what people here recommend. Thiking of going with the new Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs as they seem to offer a good balance between price and engagement at 48 POE for the singlespeed version. Does anyone have any time on one yet? If so how do you like then so far and have you had any issues with them? Any other suggestions would be great.

    Thanks in advance,
    Scott

    I've been riding one for about a year. Fantastic hub. No issues at all. Get one!

    3 years, and tons of racing miles on a set of hope pro 2's.. no issues... except it would be nice if it was a touch quieter.

    Should have mentioned I wanted to stick with splined since all of my cogs are splined.

    Sherwin, I like the noise because it reminds me that I'm not pedaling and should be. I'm afraid of bees after all.

    Then the hope is your best bet for price. A guy I know rides a set with a SS rear and he weighs more then me (240lbs) no problems from what I can tell.

    I have a geared set on my road bike but I notice a lot more drag with this hub then my Paul with WI which has trials inners 72poe vs 24poe.

    Over 3 years on my Hope SS/Trials hub. Solid, but requires some maintenance. Check the bearings and clean and regrease the pawls and ratchet twice a year. The CS from the US distributor is top notch.

    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Isn't that your typical Formula hub? Looks exactly like a few other hubs out there with different labels(Stans, Velocity,etc). They are light, but usually poor engagement. I swear by this:

    Not the ones I've been seeing on the bikes of Sun-Ringle employees. It's an alloy freehub body and the pawl design has more in common with the DT's. (rachet ring)

    Lets face it, unless you really massage the CAD, how different can a hub shell design get?

    It is either going to be this or I might try the new ArchEXs. Plus with the Hope's I can get a little bling. Looking at going with Red hubs.
