Hope Hoops, colour options and where from?
Anyone know anywhere that offers colour options on Hope Hoops? I was after some blue hubs on white Flow rims but I can only find black ones listed anywhere online. Tried CRC, Merlin, Wiggle, Rutland, Winstanly, etc. They all only do black.
Anywhere that comes close to Winstanley's £85/£145 for Pro 2s would be nice too.
Can I just say that Winstanley's have the most unhelpful person answering their customer services email too.
Me: What colour options are available on hope hoops please?
Them:The colours listed on the website are the ones available
Me: Right but I can't see any colours listed on the website, does that mean you only do black?
Them: The colours listed on our website are the ones available.

I got mine from my local bike shop(very rare that I do that now I don't live near merlin cycles), thebikeplace.co.uk. He posts on here as nodrog I think. He said that other colour options on hubs were available because he was a hope service centre and could order them specially. Not sure about rim option. I paid £250 for the pair.Posted 8 years ago
OK, change of tack slightly. Another option is to just swap my rims out for Flows. Has anyone used a place/shop called Wheelies? (www.wheelies.co.uk) They have Flow rims for the bargain price of fifty quid each.
Any other bargains about? Most places seem to be around the £70 mark.Posted 8 years agoben88Member
Only pro dealers can get the custom coloured hope wheels, Mountain Trax in wokingham occasionally stocks them but had run out when i was in there today http://www.mountain-trax.com/product/3409/Hope_Pro_2_WSet_Custom_Colour
Might be worth a phone call tomorrow thoughPosted 8 years agogab344Member
I'm sure http://www.justridingalong.com/shop.php?product=200 can do exactly what you want ie:- white flows on blue pro 2's if you are prepared to pay them for a custom build.Posted 8 years ago
JRA work out very expensive on a custom build. Think I'll just go for the rims for now and build them onto my XT hubs myself – It's the rims that I really need/want as my 717s are a touch narrow for the tyres I like to run. Blingy hubs are just a nice-to-have which I can always get in 6 months time.Posted 8 years agoratadogSubscriber

Wheelies detail their history on their website. Basically, as I understand it, they got into the market of supplying replacement bikes for insurance companies so that rather than dealing with a few manufacturers they deal with everyone you have ever heard of and then some. More recently they have started offering employers a managed cycle to work scheme and that is how I came across them when my NHS employer used them to do a scheme. I asked for a Montague Paratrooper AKA Swissbike ( big bloke needs folding bike ) and they supplied one from their warehouse which is better than the importers could manage.
They were fine to deal with and the whole scheme ran like clockwork. Obviously, it is only one experience but I would have no worries about dealing with them again myself.Posted 8 years agoMoongluMember
Sorry, I may have missed the boat on this subject but I've only just set us up as STW members. We have a set of Hope Hoops with white flows/red hubs instock:
Hope have been out of stock of black flow rims for about a month so we built these up as an alternative. White rims aren't everyones bag but they do look bling. Supplied with Q/R and 20mm conversion and spare spokes delivered free in a Hope Hoops box.Posted 8 years ago
