Model/Year: 2014 Pro 2 Evo

Pros: Convertible to most axle standards, replaceable sealed bearings, free hub has 40 points of engagement

Cons: Not that light. Loud free hub

Recommendation: A solid option for a middle of the road hubset. I'd buy it again

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Strong, light, beautifully made, inexpensive.

Cons: None.

Recommendation: Why pay more for a hub that does less, and looks boring.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: smooth, durable, convertible, strong, light, colors available, and price is good

Cons: none yet

Recommendation: I used to have Shimano hubs, and I always had trouble with the free hub body and pawls inside stripping out. Not a problem with these Hope hubs.

Pros: -Light weight
-Great sound...not too loud or ratchety (like CK hubs)
-Good engagement
-Not as expensive as the comparable competition
-Good looks

Recommendation: Can't go wrong with Hope hubs. I say they're the poor man's Chris King hub.

Pros: POE
Convertible axles

Cons: Noise

Recommendation: These hubs have amazing engagement. But with any hub that does, it is very noisy. These hubs are lightweight an bombproof. Which is very hard to find. The best part about these hubs are the fact that both the front and rear are convertible to any axle size imaginable and it is simple to swap out. If you want a set of 32 spoke hubs with changeable axles that comes in a variety of colors. The hope pro 2 hubs are for you.

Pros: Loud rear hub, smooth, durable

Cons: take a while to loosen up, price

Recommendation: The rear hub took a while to loosen up but now after about 500 miles it is really smooth. The front has always been really impressive. Easy to service too.

Pros: lightweight and fast engagement. color options

Cons: a little expensive and aluminum freewheel can get dented by SS cog. an optional steel freewheel can be bought as a replacement though.

Recommendation: I have the SS version. lightweight and loud! looks cool too with all of the different color options.

August 24, 2009
Pros: Relatively light hubs. Good engagement. Convertible axles. Offered in multiple colors. LOUD rear hub (everyone knows you are coming)! Great Value.

Cons: Softer aluminum cassette body can get scratched, though it's purely cosmetic. LOUD rear hub (sometimes you wish everyone didn't know you were coming).

Recommendation: A FANTASTIC set of hubs that are easily convertible to almost every setup I could imagine running. Have built two wheel sets using these hubs already and planning for a third. Best hubs on the market when you consider price,versatility, weight, and hub options.
