- hope xc bearings gone again (9 months)
How long dothe bearings last in your hope xc/pro 11 rear hubs?
I’ve got play in mine again after only 9 months when all 4 were changed. I had the same life out of the previous ones. A lot of reviews i’ve read say around a life of 1000 miles and i’m certain i haven’t done that in 9 months.

Doh!… I posted this before I saw the post above (damn edit is pretty good)
…. SKF and FAG bearing are always the ones recommended – your LBS (local bearing supplier) will probably just sell you cheap (and nasty) chinese ones unless you ask for a ‘named’ brand.
I would try some SKF ones and see how they last next time.
Never heard of Hope hubs developing issues due to any other reason.
Or you could send them to Hope to service (and replace the bearings) and see what they have to say.Posted 9 years agoVortexracingSubscriber
I’ve got a rear XC that i’ve used for 2 years with no problems, and yet my other one lasted no more than 9 months with considerably less use than the other had in that 9 months. It appears that a certain amount of luck comes into the equation.
I’ve replaced my failed one with SKF brgs.Posted 9 years ago
