Bought a couple of hope hoops and whilst they seem to be pretty good on the whole something seems to be off with the tightness (?) on the rear hub. I’m lucky to get a couple of spins out of it when I give the wheel a spin by hand and even at full peg on the cranks it’ll only turn four or five times.
It feels tight off the bike too, so I don’t think it’s a case of the QR being overly tight.
Problem is, I’m completely new to this sort of hub. I’ve only ever dealt with the Shimano cup and cone sort before and I didn’t used to enjoy messing with those either. Is this something I can sort myself? Am I going to have to send them back? Is it the sort of thing I can screw up my shiny new hubs doing?
Something doesn’t sound right, they can be a bit tight to start with, but they usually spin better than that. If you can do a Shimano hub, you can do a Hope as they’re easy! Diagrams on Hope’s website & even videos on YouTube by Hope themselves.
