Hope fortus 35 wheelset 29" plus 3" tyres

Post by robbie » Tue Nov 24, 2020 7:50 pm

Bought from Escape Goat off here in the summer. I've used them for one trip since owning. Great wheelset come with maxis chronicle tyres fitted set up tubeless.
I bought an xd driver hub so have a choice of Shimano or xd. I can fit any end caps required and also have a boost spacer kit available to go with them. Orange hubs.
Looking for £300 plus postage.
Can send pics.

Hi
A bit more info please
Are these boost? Or 100/15 and 142/12?
Would you do them without tyres?
Cheers
Jase

Currently they have a boost kit fitted. Which are basically just loose axle spacers and disc spacers.
I have a load of hope spacers so can supply
Qr, 12mm and 15mm.
Could possibly split the tyres
Also got a spare chronicle and a pair of nearly new chubacara tyres.

I've still got the tyres. Sorry probably should have cleared that up. :oops:
I've got this wheelset and the trek to sell
I'm reluctant to sell of the tyres seperate just now as might end up keeping the trek so tyres might come in to use. Sorry
