- Don't like the clicky hope hubs, what new ones?
Yes drive me mad, sound like one of those rattles youd see at football matches – had to borrow a pair of wheels once and I pedalled the whole way as I couldn’t stand it. The guy I ride with also has them – evenbhis drive me nuts at times.
Why spoil the peaceful bliss of coasting down hill with that racket
I suspect those that like them also used to out bits of plastic next to their tyres as kids to make it sound like they had an engine . . . .Posted 4 years agotinybitsMember
I’ll admit it, I’m a disbeliever, I hate the clicky hope hubs. I know, pedal more etc, but really they are loud enough on a downhill when you’re carving some graceful turns, that they drive you to distraction. So, what to replace them with? Something tough, preferably with cartridge bearings (cone spanners still drive me insane) and not going to cost the earth. Riding is mainly XC, very little jumping but relatively high mileage so low maintenance would be good!Posted 4 years agomartymacSubscriber
ive been using a dmr revolver hub for a couple of years now, bought because it was cheaper than hope.Posted 4 years ago
no problems at all, much quieter than hope, freehub pawls much stronger than shimano. (i weigh 21.5 stone, used to be 23 stone so a fair bit of stress through the freehub)
