My Hope Singlespeed Hub is…
I have a set and they are fine.
Issues that can cause premature failure in my experience are:
1. putting the bike away after being cleaned and made to be very wet then leaving it for a month or two. This really screws bearings.
2. cheap bearings last less well than expensive ones.
3. too much chain tension.
or they may have been put together wrong.Posted 4 years agoThrustyjustMember
Yep, mine eats bearings quite a bit. Probably changed freehub bearings 3 times this year. Also as the water gets in, the inner axle bearing gets wet too, springs go rusty etc. I have to service it monthly. Has enduro bearings in it. Really need to find the best our there to buy. Have lots of Hope hubs, but these can sup water from a desert.Posted 4 years ago
Anyone give me a clue on the best? Cant have bolt on axles due to shrouded dropouts. Any ideas ?
