When i got my hope skewers i was impressed with them but over time they become loser and loser. I found myself having to tighten them up more and more. Resently i had to tighten them up severall times over a weekend just through them lossening them selves off.
Bottom line- They look nice and they are light but i would rather add 10 grams and have something that worked.
Thanks for the info, I'll keep an eye on them. Perhaps the steel version would be a safer bet?
Goodridge hoses- They look great
Much better lever feel
Definetly an improvement in performance
I had the old minis 165/165 and was quite happy with how they performed.
Saw some mono mini at a good price so i checked around the forums and magazines to find out the general concensus. Heard the were more powerful so i opted for 160/140 rotors. Happened to have a go on a white 46 was very impressed with difference in lever feel compaired to other bikes with mono m4. So i decided to upgrade to goodridge hoses. They just felt better but it was not untill i tryed my pals hope mono mini that i realized how much difference it had made.
Thanks for the informative info. Have you had any problems with the hoses scratching the frame, aren't they quite abrasive?
I have never tryed a fox shock but everybody seems to say good things about them apart from they are 0.5 pounds heaver than sids.
They are very expensive though retail £640 pounds over here and knowone seems to discount or have a better price even over the internet.
I've tried my friends F100X and its a dream. I think the weight is not a problem when you have such a good performing, stiff fork.
Have you thought about buying one from the states? The UK pound is strong against the US dollar right now.
