I have not fitted a set, i am going to later this week so will weigh in on that then. However, my colleague has a set fitted to his own bike- after a month or so of gentle use there is lateral play on the non drive side crankarm. Not impressed. As I have said, it is the sole Hope product that I would not buy. There are other options on the market that offer more value for money. Heck, even the XTR crankset is cheaper and that thing is beautiful, meticulously made and incredibly light. The turbines I had on my alpine were awesome cranks, as are the two set sof Next SL's i've had. Raceface are on top of the game with cranks.

Don't go Hope. It is the sole product they make that i would not buy (and there is a set the shop right now). They are massively over-engineered and complicated meaning there are many places for wear, hugely expensive for alloy cranks and come in heavier than turbines. There are much better options out there.

I think a Thomson dropper will find its way on there at some point.

The old paint fell off! Massive flakes! An opportunity for a respray came along, so I took it hence the metallic blue! Pikes are all good, could use a service when I get a few moments to open them up but all going well.
