  1. Yes had it happen many times with Pro 2’s + 4’s. I’ve got to the point of just having a spare wheel built up ready to hand incase one goes. They are the only brand of hub I have ever used and if I had another choice I probably would try an Industry 9, but it’s having a UK warranty base as good as Hope has to be able to fully commit to.

  3. In the past and present, I’ve had my frames acid dipped and it took all the paint off easy. Takes about two dips before it’s all gone. Cost me about £15, which isn’t bad and you don’t have the hassle of doing it yourself. It was a wheel refurbishment company.
  4. Probably not, only thing I noticed differently is the head tube and the colour. Guessing you know a bit more about the differences?
  5. Akrigg rode one for years

  7. First one was stolen when it was sprayed blue, then he had another one later in the year which was made and went on a trip to buthiers france with Eddie. https://fb.watch/3sMUB88j4c/
  8. I believe James Porter had the frame as a one off. That trip we went on to Barcelona was the first time he rode it and possibly the last. I know he has just built it back up, but they never went to full production. You could possibly message him on Instagram/Facebook to ask the geometry. Here’s some pictures of him riding from that trip and recent photo off his Instagram
  9. I’ll hopefully get round to it one day. Finding good parts to make it suit will be fun. But I got a few ideas to make it look great. Watch this space
  10. He had one stolen then another one made. There are a few megamo’s bobbling about, you can pretty much upgrade the bikes with decent spec to make it feel quite nice. I still got an old one which has cracked about 5 times in different areas and one brand new (see pic) frame with 150mm axle clearance on the rear. They used to have really wide shimano freewheel/fixed hubs on the rear.
  11. The green frame is an old Megamo frame. I believe chris got a few off Ben Savage’s father some years ago. The Raw one with Mongoose stickers was made by an American bmx company called Standard Byke co.
  12. Search Hayes or avid Fat adapter. It might be difficult to get one in 180mm. I only managed to find a 185mm here and filed it down https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Avid-Post-to-IS-Disc-Brake-Mount-Bracket-Adapter-REAR-for-185mm-Rotor/352149302576?pageci=22d30051-18d2-4329-b7f4-d3d33d11e7b8&epid=1305524222
  13. A lot of people have had this problem over the years, it tends to be the over tightening of the caliper on top which can weaken the holes where bolts go through or there is a lot of shock going through the setup when running a 203mm rotor. But as your running a 180mm rotor it’s hard to tell if it’s just weak about the holes on this particular caliper or you just had bad luck this time round. I went down the root of running one of these adapters. Yes it’s a 185mm, but you can either file it down yourself or take it to an engineer to put it to 160mm/180mm. Plus there cheap on eBay, I’ve not had any problems since. I run a shimano 203mm icetech rotors with shimano Zee brakes F+R. I also put one fat washers with green cab bolt on top of the calipers to give them a bit more stiffness. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Avid-Post-to-IS-Disc-Brake-Mount-Bracket-Adapter-REAR-for-185mm-Rotor/352149302576?pageci=22d30051-18d2-4329-b7f4-d3d33d11e7b8&epid=1305524222
