Hope hub

Posted By: paul eden
Date: 6 May 2008

Returned from a 60mile ride on our Chas Roberts on Sunday to find the rear 48 spoked Hope hub had fractured leaving two spoked heads hanging free.The hub is approx 9 years old but had little use until we aquired the tandem three years ago.Its not done 10,000miles and never been loaded for touring and no spoke breakages in that time.

I seem to remember talking to a member some years ago who said there had been problems with early Hope tandem hubs.Ive run a pair of Campag 40hole tandem hubs for 15years with no problem and put that in the Roberts so we could get out bank hol Monday.

Anyone had similar probelms and dealings with Hope ? I,m awaiting a reply to my email from them.

Paul
