650b wheelset (WTB x Hope)

Posted on
  • Hubs:
    Hope Pro II Evo front
    Hope Pro II rear
    WTB Kom i23 rims.

    Set up for QR at the moment, but Thru convertable


    • WTB horizons
    • 2.1 Rocket Rons
    • 160mm discs
    • 3x inner tubes

    These are 10 speed hubs, but I've been using an 11 speed 36t cassette with my road groupset. Works perfectly.

    Photos to follow.


  • Hi there really interested in these. I've had a quick look and I believe the rims are tubeless, is that right? Also, are the discs centrelock or 6bolt?
    My only other question is that I have a 11speed sunrace 40t cassette, how do you think that measures up against your 36t one?
    Dibs pending pictures?!

  • @Gravel88 that's correct, both the wheels and rims are tubeless ready, but currently fitted with tubes.

    6 bolt discs as pictured above and any 11 speed mtb cassette will work with these,or a 10 speed road cassette—but I tend to find they don't have enough teeth anyway.

  • Did these sell in the end?

  • They're still for sale at the moment - buyer changed his mind.

  • What condition are the bearings in?

    Do you know which spokes were used?

  • Silky smooth front and rear - from the condition of the freehub body, they've been used lightly.

    No idea on the spokes, sorry.

  • Great. Any idea on weight?

  • No idea sorry, but the rims are notoriously as light as carbon, and the hope hubs are premium.

    I think it's a pretty high performance wheelset

  • Hi there do you still have these? Would you consider selling the bare wheels? And any idea on how much faff it is to convert to TA?

  • hope hubs are dead easy to convert, just change the end caps, which can be bought for not very much money
