A particuarly grindy Crickhowell Merida means it has suddenly become time to service my rear Hope XC, its defences appear to have been breached and the freewheel doesn't anymore.
Since I have a few Hope XC hubs I am planning to do this service (my first) myself, and in order to make it easier I am going to buy the proper Hope tools (yes I know sockets and blocks of wood etc. but my mind is made up!
So what are the Hope specific tools I need? I think it is a pair of bearing drifts (sold together) and a hub support both at about £9. But looking at CRC (my lazy internet shop of choice) they are out of stock, same at a few other shops… Does anyone know a shop that has them in stock.
I already have a couple of the bearings I need but since it is a rear I guess I need another too - any suggestions where to get these at a good price.
Equally any wise words about the service procedure will be handy, I will be following the instructions on the Hope site unless anyone can advise better.
