Ya I'm struggling to go past a new set of V12 magnesium ones for circa $80....Had the Hope F20’s for a year / 3000km and one of the pedals started clicking. Had to spend what the pedals cost me to get a rebuild kit and the machined down socket to fit the nut inside the pedals.
rebuilding was a royal pain in the arse, discovered the big easy-out trick to removing the old bushing thankfully, getting the new ones in was another shitfight too.
Wouldnt buy another set now after the expense of rebuilding them.
Also have 2 sets of ‘modern’ magnesium V12’s ( and 1 set of 20year old original V12’s still going!)
For the cost of the mag V12’s online i cannot bring myself to try the vaults, but i love the V12’s and rate them higher then the Hope F20’s for performance to cost ratio. Size of the Hope and grip is marginally better then the V12’s but not worth the added cost to me.
