Hope XC service tools
Really, you don;t need to pay for tools, you can use blocks of wood and a 19mm (spark plug) socket, I’ve done all my hubs for years that way

But you don’t need them, honest.
You will need a pair of long-ish nosed circlip pliers.
A pair of metal motor bike tyre levers with the end padded in tape to flick the end caps off.
I’ve got a off cut of 3×2 soft wood with a 32mm hole in it i use as a support for knocking the bearings out with.
A particuarly grindy Crickhowell Merida means it has suddenly become time to service my rear Hope XC, its defences appear to have been breached and the freewheel doesn’t anymore.
Since I have a few Hope XC hubs I am planning to do this service (my first) myself, and in order to make it easier I am going to buy the proper Hope tools (yes I know sockets and blocks of wood etc. but my mind is made up!
So what are the Hope specific tools I need? I think it is a pair of bearing drifts (sold together) and a hub support both at about £9. But looking at CRC (my lazy internet shop of choice) they are out of stock, same at a few other shops… Does anyone know a shop that has them in stock.
I already have a couple of the bearings I need but since it is a rear I guess I need another too – any suggestions where to get these at a good price.
Equally any wise words about the service procedure will be handy, I will be following the instructions on the Hope site unless anyone can advise better.
