Money no object, DT240 on Enve I reckon. But in practice I’m doing DTs on Lightbicycles, because I can afford that 😆 Just doing one rim for now as a trial run to see how well it tubelesses, going to stick it in the hardtail and smash it off things for a while and if it doesn’t explode I’ll get some more.Posted 4 years agomactheknifeSubscriber
My LBS have been pretty awesome after having 2 sets of E13 TRS + commit suicide. The rear hub on both had cracks appear in them after a few months. And a very well knows distributor refused to refund after the second set went wonky on me. Took an email to the US warranty department to force them to refund.
Great looking rims but the rear hub is as much use as a chocolate tea cosy.Posted 4 years agoHob NobMember
The 240 hubs are a fair chunk lighter than the Hopes, moreso the rear one. IMO they are a fair bit better.
The best way to pick them up is on complete wheels etc, the EX1750 come with them as standard for example.
I’ve got a set on some Derby rims, and another on some Enve’s both are 5+ years old and still on the original bearings.Posted 4 years ago
Yep, tbf just think of the 240 as a better Pro 2- better sealed, lighter, more reliable/stronger, but otherwise does the same job. Full axle interchangability, etc. Downside is obviously the price! (oh, and replacing the centremost bearing is a pain- but needs done incredibly rarely, because the sealing works)Posted 4 years ago
