Nukeproof Updates its Horizon and Neutron Wheelsets
If only hope offered a stealth up grade on their pro 4. At 42 years old I get embarrassed by the sound they make tbh. I pack them with grease which lasts a few months but weaker springs would be very welcome and they’d sell even more hubs too. I know several riders who won’t use Hope because of the obnoxious racket. With modern bikes being so quiet the ride is ruined when coasting. Get on it hope please.

@flyingfox49: they all use sealed bearings instead of bushings now. My 2016 helius ac is all bearings. Think that was the year they changed. The ac is a brilliant trail bike imo.

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@thegoodflow: ah you mean the wrong information that’s on hopes own web site! Ffs mate give up. You’re sounding proper retarded now. V4 do not have 18mm pistons at all. I’ve replace seals in both of hopes e4 and v4 so I know exactly what size the pistons are. Please feel free to email hope and have them verify this. As I’ve said from the beginning the brakes work just fine and are brilliant brakes in every way but power FOR ME. That’s my opinion. As for the picture of the brake you took from my account(which is a little creepy by the way) as you can see I extended my brake calliper so I could run a 220mm rotor with those gutless v4’s. To bring them up to half decent power. It worked very well too. However in the end they STILL lacked power compared to the codes so I sold them on. I know Adam brayton has been using 225 rotors for the last 3 seasons on his v4 which confirms they are beautiful,consistent but gutless brakes. Shame because I loved the look,feel etc. But remember if they slow YOU down then that’s great. But not for me,gutless I tell you....gutless!

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@thegoodflow: so now you’re proving you know nothing about the brakes you love so much! V4 has 2x 16mm piston and 2x14mm piston which is the same as a guide! The e4 has 2x14mm piston which is why they have serious power issues. I know this because I’ve owned both and serviced both. Please feel free to check this yourself. As for squeaking brakes check any Adam brayton Clip and enjoy the squeal. Him and his pro mechanic obviously can’t set up their brakes pmsl could you help them out.

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@thegoodflow: they’re well made,reliable and very consistent but there’s no getting away from their serious lack of power compared to their rivals. Every review on either the e4 or v4 verifies this. If you like them and find they have plenty of power then happy days. But most don’t as you’re now finding out. To each their own. Oh and the have a really annoying high pitch squeal when using metal pads too. Even in the dry.

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@thegoodflow: the test was also done at hopes own facility which is kind of embarrassing for hope. to be fair to hope when i emailed them about the lack of power in the v4 i had ,they were honest and said to get a saint or a code for better outright power. hopes are brilliant brakes that lack power for most people. If they sorted out the power they'd be the best in the market imo.

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@Davec85: no one is saying they're terrible, just they lack power compared to other brands which is true. I've had e4 and v4,now using code rsc. the code is much more powerful than the v4. i loved the v4 in everyday but the power just doesn't suit my braking style, which is hard and late for short period of time. i had to try and change the way i would brake by braking much earlier than was normal. i grew tired of this so i sold them and bought the code which after 2 years has been an outstanding brake.

First Look: Fox's New Float X2 & DHX2 Shocks - Pond Beaver 2020 (Updated With Video)
@nathan999x: rebound damping is far more important the compression adjustment imo. Most stock compression tunes are pretty much dialled from factory. However rebound is spring dependent so this changes greatly between riders.
