Im after some hope pro 3s but every where is out of stock that i have found. any one know a bargin place to get them or even a place that has them in stock. I have tryed Wiggle CRC and jejames.

They are for an upgrade from a 2009 trek 1.7 stock wheels. so let me know if you think for the price there would be a lighter or stronger wheel training and sportive wheel ?

    I've got these on my winter bike and have been pleased with them. Got them from all terrain cycles


    Lighter for the price you can probably find, check out Merlin cycles

    Lighter and stronger? Dunno, the Hopes seem pretty bombproof, beware they do click loudly enough to turn heads when you're freewheeling
  • I have the same hubs but just got my LBS to build them up for me, so that may be an option for you. Went for Ambrosio Excellence rims though on there recommendation.

    As said the free hub is a little loud at first, but I quite like it now.

    Oooops should have looked at the allterrain cycles as they are my LBS and i goy my trek from them. :D

    Prices look a bargin ithink i will have to bob along there and see if i can pick them up.

    Thank all forthe quick replys. They do look like good wheels for the money.

    As for the loud freewheeling noise.... good reason to keep peddeling you slackers :lol:
