Centre lock to 6 bolt – help!!
Can anyone tell me if this will fit my splined Hope XC hub?
Itching to fit my new brakes!!Posted 9 years ago
except for the really old ones.
WOuld this fit?
youd then need a 5 bolt rotor for it I guess.Posted 9 years ago
What Stoner says above is correct but you also need a screw on lock ring to hold the spider in place. Just make sure you get the right spider because I think they may be a couple of different spline patterns, a call to Hope should confirm this. I used to have the same system on my old Hope Bulbs.Posted 9 years ago
you could ask hope whether they make a splined-to-6bolt spider? But I cant find one retail, so it would prob be a special order and probably cost some.
The alternative is to buy a new XC hub which will have IS 6 bolt fitting for about £35, and rebuild your wheel onto it. or a ProII for £50ish.Posted 9 years agocoolfurcatsMember

Clears throat. Hmmm!! OK…
Hope made the “original centre-lock” on the Ti-Hubs. Unfortunately the spline was much bigger with less teeth, and so is incompatible with shimano. There was a couple of adapters made for 6 hole rotors, (Sachs did them at the time), but there is probably no way you’ll get an adapter from Hope spline to Int Stnd 6 bolt fitting nowadays. What you’ll have to do is take a 5 bolt rotor in the correct size and the alminium spyder you’ve already got, fiddle about with washers and spacing for 10 mins, as these old hubs had a diffrent horizontal spacing to newer Int stnd ones, and it should fit. Speak to the guys at Hope for more info.
Here is the spider off my hub,
As you can see it has a lot more splines than in the stoners above (more shimano-esque?)Posted 9 years ago
Sorry to go on:
Does anyone know if there would be a compatibilty issue with this:
ie. different offset etc?Posted 9 years ago
