Domestique

Domestique (4/6)

  1. Yes . I will post some. Also though Hope was bullet proof. 8900 km on hub
  2. Does anyone know if such a tool is available . DT Swiss have a tool but can’t find anything for a Hope hub. I broke a pawl spring and it damaged the ratchet ring. The hub is more than 2 years old so out of warranty . The free hub no longer engages on the forward pedal stroke Last resort would be a hub replacement 😳

    Marathon bike

    I have a Stage Max with a 140mm Ohlins on the front Came off riding a KTM Scarp Prestige which is an out and out marathon racing machine. Stage Max climbs just as quickly as the KTM did with very little bob. On the downhill its chalk and cheese. The Pyga just rolls over everything and you feel safe all the time where the KTM rattled your teeth and was very skittish as the trails got rougher and you tried to go quicker. You feel as if you are slower until you look at the segments..... Haven't had the opportunity to do any stage races yet but done a few long rides and its very comfortable, even after 3-4 hrs in the saddle Always had issues getting parts for the KTM where as the Pyga is local And as mentioned in the previous posts the people at Pyga are super helpful and friendly
  4. Same on Stage Max : 30.9 dropper post
  5. It was awesome Still smiling Tested it on the trails in Tokai. Rock gardens that rattled my teeth previously went almost unnoticed. A lot quicker but never felt out of control. Fitted at the Bike Park at Uitsig. Chris Nixon set it up perfectly
