MRP Boost Adapter Kit for DT Swiss Wheels
@deeeight: The Hope hubs are spaced as a 135/142, my hub flanges are as wide as possible. Big companies tend to do a half ass job. I ran a 150mm Division hub that was with flanges wider apart than the Evo II, my current NOX hub is also wider. I was mistaken with the 78 BB width, I meant a 73mm with at least 1 spacer on both sides, making it basically a 78mm. Also, if a Boost 148 can fit a 73mm BB, why cant a 150mm rear hub not fit a 73 BB with a 1mm spacer on each side? Boost may have been created for 29", but you cannot buy a strong freeride 26" or 27.5 fork with a 20mm axle. For my DJ bike I can only buy a DJ1 and Circus in a 20mm variant at an affordable price. For Freeride, the choice is even harder, RS make no decent fork for FR, MZ have no 66 any more and Manitou do not offer anything, FOX is just over priced with the 36.

@Bustacrimes: My hub has flanges to exactly where the rotor bolts up, not like the fake stuff Hope is making. I run a 9 speed cassette, I use three gears anyway ✌️

We love gimmicks! Now we need 28,3" wheels to combat the extra added weight of 27.5++Evo II

Just grind off the excess 1mm on each side of the frame and put a 150mm rear wheel. Then simply send an envelope to SRAM with a photo of the unicorn and a huge printed out middle finger and a packet of lube...for their pleasure. :)

That is so true, it's also scary once someone else says/writes it. Are we that stupid?

@deeeight: How does exchanging a 20mm axle for a 15mm one fix the problem of a not strong enough wheel? Surely the hubs could be improved upon without having to scrap the entire concept. The rear Boost baffles me even more, as I have never seen a 78mm BB without at least 1 spacer on each side for a better chain line, given that that is the only problem that the 150/157 hubs were facing. The 150 was inherently made just for strength, right? Hell, Dave the man Weagle himself said that Boost was a load of crack as well.

Looks like the hub on my Glory, that I've been riding for 2 years now :D .....
