Help, I’ve just got some hope xc hubs on mavic 717 rims I won on eBay, they are quick release , I have a 2009 specialized rockhopper comp 26er!! Will I have to do a lot of mods???? It has the right number of bolt holes for the disc, I hope I ant jumped in with two feet???? Just got excited when seeing the word (hope) and I was looking to upgrade , cheers
Thanks every1!!! Phewwww!!!! Why do I need to adjust the brakes n gears??? Amateur!!!! Ha ha thanks again lads, I’ve heard they are a good hub, the rear is titanium n meant to b lighter too!!!! Just need stronger legs now!!!
Regardless of what the disc standard says, the disc mounts on the hubs are always slightly different, so your caliper is unlikely to perfectly fit centrally over the disc on the hope hub compared to your existing.
Likewise the position of the cassette is highly unlikely to be in exactly the same position as the old one, so the gear indexing and mech end stops will need adjusting.
