- What’s up with my hub? SRAM Vs Hope
The thing I’ve noticed now is that when the cassette is screwed onto the freehub, the hub axle stops turning. It only turns one way when the freehub goes with it (clicking). So tightening the cassette must be putting pressure through the hub bearings, which I’d have thought the spacer is there to prevent. To do that, though, feels like the axle end cap is somehow too big, but do t see any other option. Brings me back to my thread title, is there a specific end cap needed for SRAM cassettes on hope hubs?
This is helping to think it through, off to Google.Posted 2 months agobigyanMember
For Pro 2 there is an XD endcap, you can see it. You can check that it is the issue by refitting the cassette without the endcap

I’m working out subtleties as I go along. It seems that the end cap is wrong, sure enough it came from the wheels when set up with a Shimano freehub but I don’t have the SRAM specific endcap. Still checking with hope for details.
Hope you get it sorted. I think when you buy the freehub it comes with the matching spacer.Posted 2 months ago
