Hope Hoops Alternatives?
don’t even notice the hub noise if that helps at all.
I like the noise myself
Cheers, I’m quite concious of it as I don’t pedal much on the DH bike so hear it all the time, but do quite like it although I sometimes feel like I’m spoiling other peoples peace and quiet!Posted 4 years ago
Hi, I want a new set of wheels for my BFe and want QR rear and QR/15mm front (I want QR/15mm front as I’ll be upgrading my fork next!), the choice is a little bewildering and so I’d like some help please:
I could just go for another pair of Hope Hoops (as on my DH bike), but I think the rear hub noise would be a bit too annoying on the BFe, especially while climbing. So what alternatives are there for the same or lower price, which is as good (or better) and can be run QR/15mm front?
Also what rims would you recommend (I’d like something fairly light, but strong (100+kg rider!) and I’d also like the option of Tubeless)?
Thanks.Posted 4 years ago
My Hope freewheel has gone from quiet to almost silent
Might mean the pawl springs need replacing… I’d give it a service if I were you, the pawls are reasonably cheap so it could be worth replacing them to be sure.Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber
Depends how much pushing he’ll be doing
ah the tick tick tick of failure, it depresses me, might aswell be fail fail fail 🙁
They are the best thing for getting walkers to hear you way before you reach them.
no, my rear brake howling like a banshee all the way down warnscale bottoms is even better than a hope freehub. Proper high pitched shriek, contaminated pads I think, I had to keep apologising to walkers for ruining the silence and solitude of the countryside.Posted 4 years agomindmap3Member
I’ve just got some Hope Hoops and for the money they’re pretty hard to beat. The free hub does my head in so will be getting some lube chucked on the pawls to quieten it down. It’s not so bad when there ate a few of you etc but riding on your Todd first thing in the morning it sounds really, really loud.
Build quality seems good although I’ve buckled my rear wheel first ride out. But all if my tear wheels seem to have a slight wobble.Posted 4 years ago
