Can anyone find this specific hub? Hope 36 rear

I recently bought this front hub.


It's a Hope-Fatso, 36 hole front, Titanium hub with red anodized aluminum outers.

I'd like to get the matching rear cassette, non-disc hub for the rear.

Anyone got a clue where to get one?

Thanks!

Never heard of it.
It's pretty thought.
Hope it's well-made to boot.

It's a first generation Hope Technology hub made in the 1990's when it was common amongst many manufacturers to make hubs out of three pieces and glue them together. The Fatso is a mountain bike hub, the theory being that a fat hub would stiffen up the early design suspension forks. There is no matching rear ie. there is no Fatso rear, instead it was used with Hope's generic rear called the Ti-Glide. I doubt you'd find a Ti-Glide, Hope are well into their 3rd generation hubs now.

Given the choice I wouldn't use it, you'd be much better off with a modern hub. Perhaps a collector may pay a premium in a few years.

Thanks Ray, I'll go with the newer Mono lineup front and rear.
