    Trail Conditions: We didn't even have to rinse off our bikes.

    We don't quit riding because we get old.

    I got in a brief ride yesterday (45 minutes or so) and it was 27*.

    The wind was howling but the trees broke it up for most of the ride. Loading the bike in the truck and shedding the gear wasn't fun; no trees were breaking the wind there

    But, at least I got to ride and we'll be back to 50's by the weekend. Looks like a great ride.

    I got in a 45 min ride or so as well and it was 32 when I walked out the door. Nice to get out but not that much fun!

    That is the sound of Hope

    Honestly, those hope hubs are great but they can really be annoying.

    Wish we had trail here like in Oregon. I'm sure when you post some pictures on how you spent you weekday riding everyone will hate you too

    I still want a Hope hub though! Especially on a SS ripping down the hills chasing other people! I think the trees get scared thinking there is a chainsaw running loose! My trials fw is close but not as loud for sure.

    And these sell?

    F that. The ringing in my ears is plenty. I'd rather walk than listen to that.




    Nice bike skills.

    Yes, they sell!

    I have a set of Industry 9 wheels on my all mountain rig and it is pretty loud but more of a higher pitch and it's not as annoying. Super fast/instant engagement. The hope pro II hubs are about the most annoying. But probably the best for the money IMO. But i think once i get the hubs serviced, it should mellow down a tad bit. My next wheels will be a set of Industry 9.

    I love the Hope Pro II hub sound. One of the racers here has one and we are VERY similar is skill sets. If I hear that hub coming behind me I know I have to pick up the pace. When my current hub bites the dust, the Hope is the mostly likely choice to replace it.

    My fav hub for SS is an old shimano LX "silent clutch" Complete silence. But I broke several spokes on it back in summer. Plan to buy new spokes and rebuild this week. Functional vintage.
