Here we go again with another cascade of the stuff that’s landed on the ST doormat this week, it’s Fresh Goods Friday!
Hope Hoops Pro 2 Evo 29er Flow EX Wheels
Light, strong and with massive Flow Ex rims, we’ve got a pair of 29er Pro 2 Evo Hope Hoops delivered. The straight pull hubs now come with stainless steel bearings and should be bomb proof.
Our pair are equipped with SRAM 11 speed compatible XD drive and are destined for Dave’s LTc build, which in typical fashion is being hastily built for an alpine roadtrip to Eurobike.
It’s nearly there but will it be finished in time?
