I had that exact type of failure several times with the 12x142 alloy axle of a Hope SS specific hub. Warranty replaced twice. Once with another alloy axle, 2nd time with stainless steel. Been fine since. Supposedly was the 1st in the U.S.

Hope 🤮. I’m done with them. Had a hub body snap and their crank spindle fail. Nope.

I still have I9s on the Fat Bike, everything else I swapped to DT non-EXP. They're just absurdly bombproof and easily interchangeable. I swap freehubs and cassettes between mountain, gravel, and road with no tools.
