How can I tell if my hubs are one vs the other? I got them second hand as part of a wheelset and they don’t have any identification on the hubs themselves, only the Hope Oval logo on one side and then Hope Hoops on the other (I assume they were built by Hope)
There’s not actually that much difference tbh. Fronts are I think identical except for stainless bearings as standard. Rears are the same hub shell but with totally revised internals and freehub- though the real world benefits are just easier changes of axle standards (endcaps only) and also you can use a 12mm axle without having to warranty the hub about 3 times a year.
So unless these things make a difference to you, don’t worry about it.
