Core Bike 17 – Hope

The Hope HB.211 will finally be available at the end of this year/early next. We’ve been teased seemingly for most of last year with images and droplets of info but we finally got chance to have a closer look at it.

The bike will only be available as a complete build and will no doubt come with a fairly hefty price tag. This much carbon costs!

Carbon Bars

Hope have finally taken their carbon expertise into handlebars and as a result have been able to keep their production in Barnoldswick. The key areas of the design are the wider bulbous area around the centre and all the bends of the bar. The only size reduction comes around the lever clamp area giving an overall stronger bar. They should be available Spring 2017.

Oval Chainrings

Hope have also jumped on the Oval Ring bandwagon. Available in six colours (silver, red, blue, purple, orange, black) and with 28,30,32 teeth options.

A pretty massive 10-48t cassette to compliment their existing 10-40 and 10-44 cassettes.
