- Hope Pro 3 Play In Hubs
I have some Hope Pro 3 hubbed wheels on my road bike. There is a small amount of play in the hubs when I put the wheels on the bike and nip up the QRs.
They bearings seem fine – running smooth and no play when not on the bike… Just when the QR is tightened. Anyone else experienced this? Are new bearings the answer?

Seems to be an issue with a batch if not all of them recently. I had a new pair of wheels with these hubs built in March and both were loose straight out the box. New bearings sorted out the rear, but not the front. Sent the front back to hope and they replaced the hub. My understanding is that the hubshells are slightly oversize.
Took a lot of faffing around to finally get them sorted as as soon as you took them apart and put them back together again, they were fine. It was only after a very short ride that the looseness reappeared.
From memory, my wheel builder said they had had about 10 faulty Pro 3’s so far – which was back in July I thinkPosted 4 years agoTheGingerOneMember
I initially went through being told that the front quick release was not tight enough, then that the hub was not actually done up tight enough because it was binding when screwed up so it felt tight, but wasn’t. Finally I tried new bearings which made no difference. Then I sent it backPosted 4 years ago
