  1. It's your ratchet that's rounded inside the body of the hub, I've had the same issue. Go onto hope tech website, fill out the warranty form and print it off. Box the hub up with the form and send it to there address. If the body of the hub is in warranty then they will replace the body and ratchet under warranty. If not then you will probably have to buy a New body for £30 I think. I've sent one back last year and had to pay as it was out if date. But fingers crossed yours isn't. Hope That helps
  2. Sure dude, take you some local trails
  3. If you got the bike with you dude pop down porthcawl.
  4. I'm probably heading over to Bristol either sat or Sunday to ride with @ben_travis as he's down atm. I might be able to ride as well. Depends which day, I live 20mins from Cardiff.
  5. It was Gav, I was there that weekend with him.
  6. The main thing is, normally it would come as standard with bolts. Possibly a mix up and just ordered the wrong one. Send it back and have it changed if your bike shop did the order.
  7. Normally for a trials specific hope hub it comes like this. You sure its not the Hope pro 4 MTB with a long freewheel?
  8. Myself and Aaron Browne run Maxxis Holly Rollors on ours. We both find them ok for street and natural, but depending on what PSI you run you would probably run something with a thicker sidewall. I tend to use 60 PSI in mine so it rolls faster and I can feel every bump. If I did comps again which I may do the odd one this year. I'd probably run MAXXIS HIGH rollers F/R in single wall. Just to keep the weight down. I did use a double a few years back on a megamo which felt ok, but I like to save weight these days.
  9. Also fit wider washers on top of the caliper with the bolts.
  10. If you want to keep the cost down stick with shimano. I've had plenty of time to experiment on a few different ones, from 4 piston shimano saints new/old calipers and the new zee ones. The only main thing I found why so many people have snapped calipers thinking they were weak isn't the problem. It's down to the amount of force and strength in that area on the back brake. First you need a Fat Hayes disc brake adaptor mount, so it takes away the shock using a 203mm rotor. Once you have this you can run any style in there range. My setup atm is a shimano 4piston zee caliper on the rear, and a Shimano 2piston M506 ( deore ) front. Running the Shimano M506 deore levers in black. I also decided earlier this year to try 2piston on the front to reduce the power, but still keep some bight on the pads. Pads F/R are EBC red pads, always ran them and have been brilliant. Hope that helps
  11. Yo Guys So its been a while since i released a video, ive collected a few clips over the past year or two and managed to gain a bit more over this summer. Thanks too Marinobikes, Aaron Browne and James Parr for Filming/Editing, Enjoy.
  12. Thanks for the comments guys. I do have a New video in the pipeline which will be a lot longer and show more of my technical riding style. Cheers
  13. Went for a pedal around Barry Island on Saturday
  14. I'll be there.
  15. On my 26/24inch Marinobikes I'm currently running a BBB stem which is 90/35 Rise (they go for around £20 on eBay) in 25.4 but u will need 31.8 which they do. Very gd quality and quite popular for anyone who wants to save abit of money. I ran a hex with a 70/35 aswell, which felt great to help make the bike feel shorter. But if u want abit more room for gaps I'd go for the 90/35. Would love a 80/35, but u can't get any. Think Ali C runs a Xtreme stem 80/40 31.8 clamp only. so u can take away most of the stackers, which is a great idea. They come from Rose-bikes in Germany.
