- Hope Singlespeed hub
smarty, so pick is better than the Pro 2s then…that's good to know, but sounds like not as instaneous as King which I really came to depended on.
ah the CK colours :D!…currently thinking of green or possibly brown (as a tribute my old now broken singlespeed frameset) choices , choicesPosted 8 years ago69erMember
King = bling. Or vulgar depending on your viewpoint. And stupid money. Very pretty, bizarre noise, not without adjustment and engagement issues.
Hope = marginally slower pick up (are you doing Trials, are you really going to notice?) Really nicely made, easliy user servicable, spares are cheap, customer service is excellent too. Did I mention they were British too? 😉
Buy Hope and send the difference (£204!) to the earthquake victims. Good Karma and a good hub for you.Posted 8 years agoSmartyMember
Tangent, check out the Hope website for details of Trials/SS hub. The specific rear Trials hub is available with four pawls, offset in two pairs, offering a forty eight engagement ratchet. Standard Pro II is 24, so Trial/SS is twice as quick.Posted 8 years ago
Also I believe there is a new overhaul, it will from now on have needle roller bearings in the barrel.
no hopping (yet!) Kona_ona, but some desperate manouvers are required to keep going along cleanly, mostly it was that I really did the difference when I stopped riding my King hub and started back on the gears…and your point about the cost difference in this time of earthquake crisis is spot on.
been studying the spec's some more now, thanks for link Smarty – there's so much stuff on the Hope site I never quite know what am looking at, and understand that Hope's singlespeed / trails hub offers more points of engagement than the regular Pro 2 I've become used to.
Lastly seems you can get possibly get them in green…decision made! -thanksPosted 8 years ago
