Core Bike: Hope Technology

February 2, 2012

Hope was showing its usual large array of products, many of which we’ve featured here already but there was still newness if you had a poke around. Oh, and the pedals are REALLY going to be out this spring.

Quietly sitting on an Orange Five was a chain keeper and a combined chainring/bashguard, ready for the 1×10 revolution that’s going to be sweeping the nation at some point. The chainring fits four-bolt chainsets and works well with Hope’s new keeper… There’s a couple of different ones in the works, but currently, they’re working on this seat tube mounted one first.

1x10 - it's the new singlespeed


An L-shaped keeper that can move in and out to keep the chain kept




Here's the pretty minimal combo


It'll inevitably come in lots of sizes



Here it is on a cyclocross bike, mounted to a seat tube direct mount tab


Expect to see a few of these on the start lines this autumn.


Hope is 'nearly there' with its integrated cassette and hub. Paul Oldham is aparently happy with it now, and if he is, then you will be.
