- Hope Pro2 rear axle conversion q.
If you’ve got a Pro2, you need the new axle too.. the Pro2 Evo comes with a wider axle to start with and the conversion is just end caps. Does the 12mm axle fit through the axle in the hub at the moment?
Sounds like you’ve got a 135×12 from what you’re saying (or you still need to install the axle).
I’m sure someone with more knowledge will be along shortly.
EDIT – by wider above, I meant larger diameter.. no idea how the width side-to-side varies if at all.Posted 4 years agoChrisISubscriber
That looks like the old Maxle 135×12 (http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/hope-pro-2-conversion-kits-12mm-thru-rear/rp-prod21849 ) and not a proper 142×12 (X12) (http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/hope-pro-2-conversion-kit-x12-rear/rp-prod47535)
Right code on the bag by the looks of it, wrong product in the bag. I hope this isnt a sign of things going down hill at Hope, as I recently had an a standard X12 end cap labelled as XX1/XD X12, which then didnt fit my XD body. LBS sorted it no probs but shouldnt have happened.Posted 4 years ago
I have ‘Hope Pro 11’ rear hub, previously run QR.
I bought conversion kit Hub231 to convert it to X12.
The hub still seems to be 135mm wide with the new axle and end caps fitted. I was expecting it to be 142.
Have I done anything wrong or have I got a 135mm 12mm conversion kit in the wrongly labelled bag (does such a thing exist)?
Is it just the end caps that change it from 135mm to 142 or does the axle change too?
I think I should have got end caps that look like this;
