Hope evo II SP hubs – couple of questions
Obviously aside the spokes, they’re effectively the same as the standard evo hubs so anything you can do with the standard you can do with the sp version so yes 142×12 is certainly do-able with the right adapters…X12 conversion kit is needed
Length of spokes: what rims?Posted 4 years agonukeSubscriber
straightpull is nothing but a pain.
my hope pro2 sp with flows have been no trouble and spokes were fine to get hold of…certainly haven’t been a pain. Survived fine in Molini 😀
Having said that, if I was buying new, I probably wouldn’t bother…can’t see any real advantage worth paying more forPosted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
If you’re using a rim that Hope supply, that works not too bad as they keep stock of spokes. But you’re still limited in choice- build a J-spoke wheel and you can choose pretty much any spoke ever made, and combine it with any rim, and not have to pay too much.
But as you say, the problem is mostly that there’s no convincing reason to do it so even a small drawback is enough. That said, Hope take a lot of the pain out of it, especially if you buy a full Hoop as they come with spares. Building from scratch? No ta.Posted 4 years agoSuperficialMember
No problems with my SP Evos on Flow rims. I’m running as 142 x 12.
I agree – the SP spokes are a bit of a gimmick but I’ve had no issues over 2 years so I have to conclude they’re ok. Plus, Hope include two spare spokes per wheel so hopefully I won’t run into supply problems as I have with other straight pull spokes (shimano road wheels).
My ghetto solution to the above was to straighten out a normal spoke. Seems to work just fine 😀Posted 4 years agojimbothejetsetMember
Their not a gimmick on 29er wheels where they offer considerably more stiffness. On 26″ they only offer something marginal like 6% so fair to say if agree with everyone else then, though sourcing them isn’t that much of a pain at all and the two shops I’ve worked in carry good stock.
OP, you can get them with the XD freehub and in all configurations. As mentioned they have all the same bells and whistles as the standard Pro 2 Evo just different spoke attachment and that’s it.Posted 4 years agonasherMember
Coz they look cool
And if you snap a spoke on the sprocket side, you can easily replace it while on the trial..
Assuming you carry a spare.
this was the main reason as removing cassettes is a pain, thinking of the stans flow rims.
They will be complete hope hoops.
Will give hope a call today.Posted 4 years ago
