Posted 7 years ago eddSubscriber Yes I should add that it’s an early prototype… Posted 7 years ago thisisnotaspoonMember Should be ready arround the same time as the new STW forum then? Posted 7 years ago jediMember heh heh 🙂 Posted 7 years ago forgotmenameMember They do look nice tho, hopefully some nice chainrings to follow.? Posted 7 years ago hungry monkeyMember bit chunky for me… Posted 7 years ago LoCoMember Any ideas of target weights, intended use e.t.c They look nice but a bit heavy in comparison to a set of XT/XTR cranks that I’d use otherwise. Posted 7 years ago ChrisLSubscriber They look like Race Face Diabolous cranks or something similarly chunky to me, but with HTII-style pinch bolts on the non-drive side. Posted 7 years ago jediMember they not that chunky . not a production thing so the axel is massive Posted 7 years ago rkk01Member Well they’re not Middleburns…. So yes, chunky, not pretty Posted 7 years ago CaptainFlashheartMember Look very nice for a prototype. Now, about these persistent rumours of a Hope derailleur being in the pipeline…. Posted 7 years ago HairychestedMember They aren’t Middleburn so they’ll be affordable. Posted 7 years ago I_AcheMember If you look in the reflection in the pic there is a chainring top right. Posted 7 years ago one_happy_hippyMember I will be interested to see the weight on those – there does seem to be a fair bit of material machined out from the rear of the arm. Quite happily use more UK produced parts. Posted 7 years ago jediMember they ddint feel that heavy. same as a atlas crank ish Posted 7 years ago backhanderMember chain device and hint of chain ring? Posted 7 years ago rkk01Member They aren’t Middleburn so they’ll be affordable. Mmm, lusted after some RS7s for I don’t know how long (certainly 5+ years) When the economy burned and the Yen / £ made Shimano so expensive I got cranks / rings off CRC for XT money 😀 Posted 7 years ago LoCoMember I need that chain device 😈 , in team green of course Posted 7 years ago JamesDMember http://www.hopetech.com/page.aspx?itemID=SPG234 Posted 7 years ago kimbersSubscriber i want to see own this hope drivetrain! [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXCjaJ3uac8[/video] Posted 7 years ago CaptainMainwaringMember They look great – perfect Hope slightly industrial style. If they were SLX/XT’ish money/weight I’d have them like a shot. Currently using SLX crankset which is very good but very dull looking Posted 7 years ago NorthwindSubscriber The freehub-o-cassette is pretty cool. If the cranks bring as much exciting innovation and progress to the table as the Eternity seatpost I guess I’ll stick with Shimano though. Posted 7 years ago the_lecht_rocksMember northwind – indeed – i have aquired an Eternity post and it’s a right FAFF ! Posted 7 years ago matthew_hMember Their chainrings are pretty much ready for sale. Unramped though so are only for singlespeed/1x drivetrains. Very nice though. Cassette/freehub is on its way but they’re still working on material choice and specs so it’s not really imminent. Cranks are nowhere near yet, nor is the chain device really. Posted 7 years ago messiahMember Crank looks suitible for for 1 x 10 only – which makes sense if Hope produce the 9-36 sprocket… DIRT readers will be splurging all over there clown shoes. Posted 7 years ago kimbersSubscriber DIRT readers will be splurging all over there clown shoes. i already am Posted 7 years ago DougalSubscriber Did STW not go to the Core Bike Show, or are they waiting till we’ve read all the news elsewhere? Posted 7 years ago takisawa2Subscriber Will they be doing them in Ti ? 😉 Posted 7 years ago scruffMember Looks like a Hex head void in the driveside axle. Cant think why. Posted 7 years ago DougalSubscriber Looks like a Hex head void in the driveside axle. Cant think why. Like the Middleburn HT2 style cranks, it is easier to make the axle as a separate part and have both ends bolt onto it. Posted 7 years ago PJM1974Member Nice…I’m sure the finished items will look great in the metal too. Hopefully by using a non driveside interface they’ll avoid the Raceface fretting problem that rendered my Evolve X Types useless within fifteen months too. Posted 7 years ago Cheeky MonkeyMember Notice the last pic on that link is of a packaged Hope chainring but it says “chainrings, bashrings and rotors”. Often thought that a bash would be something easy and useful for Hope to do given their experience in milling blocks of alu and then anodising them pretty colours. Maybe one (Hope scale) day then 😉 Posted 7 years ago dirtbiker100Member DIRT readers will be splurging all over there clown shoes. i already am kleenex needed here too. can’t wait for the cassette. i’m struggling with a dying 9spd mech so i can just buy a 10spd mech and hope cassette in one go… Posted 7 years ago Love TubsMember Um, they look a bit to knarly for me. However I do like their front mech, it all looks a bit too Motocross mind you? Are they as smooth as the Bit S, shifting wise? Posted 7 years ago Digger90Member CNC’d cranks surely cannot be as stiff as forged such as XTR…?
