  • Martin was looking for an upgrade ahead of this years Etape du Tour in July. This years route is a tough one taking in Col du Chaussy (1533m), Col de la Croix de Fer (2067m) and La Toussuire (1705m) with the Mollard as a cheeky one on the way!

    The Hope RS Mono hubs have stainless steel cartridge bearings and a serviceable freehub which will keep maintenance costs down and increase the service period.

    Good luck in the mountains Martin!!
