I remember reading a thread that had some pics of hope minis with the levers and other bits anodized. Now I can't find it. Does anyone know which thread I'm talking about?

Also, can you get the hope minis colored like that from a retailer or do you have ot go to an anodizer? I'm thinking of putting them on my race bike instead of marta sl's since they are less expensive. If only they had carbon levers :rolleyes:

thanks

It mentions 2 places chain reacation and Monkamoo on ebay. I believe the ebay store also has a shop in the U.S. as well.

Thanks dualsport

I may have to go that route, even if they're in the UK and I'm in US. I'll have tosee if bikeparts.com has anything

Although it isn't the exact thread I was thinking of, it is better. Thanks RM27

Try "Casino Bicycles"

www.casinobicycles.com

They were selling the hops with the coloured bits. In California or Vegas I think? One of my friends ordering a couple of sets of Hopes with the coloured pieces, was $10 per piece if it was coloured. I think. Their website is currently being updated, but I'm betting that if you emailed them, they could hook you up.

Sorry if this is a dumb question - but what tool do you use to remove these caps, assuming you find the replacements?

Thanks
There is a special (Hope) tool you can purchase for these caps,
I'm sure there is 2 different sizes so make sure you get the correct size but I believe M4's
require both sizes so you need 2 different tools.
Available at chainreactioncycles.

chainreactioncycles in the UK. I live in Australia and buy most of my gear from the USA, UK, Hong Hong, Taiwan or Germany... Never had a problem! Dont worry about international post, dont worry about the shipping cost, just look to see who sells the products you want and then work out what comes out of your pocket at the end of the day including the shipping.

| have no problems paying $100 for shipping on a set of wheels if it is going to save me $400 on the RRP in Australia!! :D
