In stock and ready to go, we have one HB 130 frame pack in Green. Hubs are black with a green kit. One of the most fun all round 29ers and all made right here in the UK, we are please to say after hundreds of km ‘testing’ the new Hope it has passed with flying colours.
“The HB.130 is the second bike to come from our Barnoldswick bike works. Born, once again out of a desire to build a bike we wanted to ride, our engineers and designers have managed to create a bike we believe is an ultimate all-rounder.
We wanted a bike to defeat the local technical climbs but still tackle our favourite Lake District descents and trail centre laps. Geometry is key with the HB.130 and with the angles we’ve chosen, the bike is playful yet controllable in whatever situation you get into on the trail. The bike rolls on 29er wheels and features 130mm of rear travel, which creates a bike that chews up technical climbs, rips along the flats then thrashes the downs.
You’ll also notice the HB.130’s designers have paid particular attention to the aesthetics of the bike. The front triangle has a curvaceous, sleek look while the rear triangle retains that trademark Hope CNC look with beautifully machined chain stays. As ever, the full bike option is fully kitted out in the highest quality Hope components. However, for the HB.130 we are introducing a frame kit option for those who wish to put their own stamp on a Hope bike.”
