- Hope Hoops or JRA / Merlin custom build ?
If I were after Hope Hubs, I’d go with the Hoops. The cost of them is incredible for what you get.
It’s just cost me £90 for a Stans crest 29er rim and some DT Comp spokes and nipples for a build. Hope you can get a set of Hope hubs included for an additional £75, I have no idea.Posted 4 years agobunnerscjMember
Yes I know, sure its been done loads but…. 😆
Wait for it…..
£300 for Hope 29er Hoops or… Just riding along / Merlin custom builds @ £400 ish.
Other than the ability to select colours, what would you do ?
Are the Hopes a good a build as say JRA / Merlin ?
Had some JRA built 29er wheels and they were great – on other hand, had some Freeborn hoops built and the were totally aweful (poor tension, out of true in no time – now non retrieveable !)
Lets have some opinion….Posted 4 years ago
I’ve just fitted some Hope Hoops and they seem pretty good but I’ve only been out on them once so far. I got them from the CRC warehouse shop and asked for them to be checked before I took them away as their wheel build room is beside the shop. Just as well as they were not true, so get them checked if you can.Posted 4 years agopeterfastlaneMember
Just brought a pair of wheels from superstar component. Their hubs with ztr crests, and race spokes @ £200 delivered.the hubs are convertable to the usual sizes and you can have flow rims if you want at the same price. Choice of black or white rims/ hubs. Some poor reviews, but i am happy with mine so far . 26 and 29erPosted 4 years ago
