The Hope T-Rex ratio expander allows you to upgrade your existing 11-36 10spd cassette to give an 11-40T range. The T-Rex simply installs behind your existing cassette and replaces one of the smaller sprockets, usually the 17T.

"It fits snugly in to the pump sleeve in my back pack (12ltr) and only weighs 50grms more than my old pump. I was initially concerned that the foot clip that you stand on to stop it moving around while you pump would brake but to date has stood up to its task. Once you’r used to it, packing it way is a quick and easy process. Other than that it works well, inflates tires quickly and with so much less effort than hand pump"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality

"I'm a bit of a Hope fanatic so temper this slightly, The wavy rota's are reliable, well built and do there job with no fuss. I've been using them in all sizes for over ten year's now mainly on starter bikes or for people who just want a bike that looks smart. If your looking for quick cooling, high feel rota's this is not them."
Pros: Great Value, High Quality, Versatile

"light, nice looking and does the job, this is all i can really say at this point. The rail clamps are low profile enough so as not to damage the underside of the seat when it flexes and holds the seat firmly.
I'm running it on my XC hardtail doing about 200ks a week so only time and distance will tell for sure"

Anodised, Laser etched aluminium top cap for the hope head doctor expanding unit.
 

Where can I get the bolt?

As I read in the previous reviews, the bolt isn't included, but don't find it neither on your website to order it separately ...
Go to the hope tech site and get the part number from there. then rock up to your LBS and ask then if they have a hope supplier. If so given part number and all good. failing that ask the boys at hope directly they have never failed to help me when i needed small hope parts. FYI the bolt is the same as their bar end bolts.

Is this a direct replacement to the lever that comes with the hope tech Evo brakes and does it have the BPC and lever adjustment holes?

Yes, identical to your black lever, just a different colour. the lever only has the reach hole. The lever carrier has the BPC in it. This is the LEVER only!!

Replacement Tech brakes master cylinder lids are available in a choice of colours.
 

one piece or two pieces as a pair

What's the unit per purchase? Need a pair for front/real levers but not sure to order one or two.
They come as singles. So if you have a pair of tech brakes you need 4.
Ps who see the underneath?? just get 2.

Will it fit to the frame with a bracket?

Yes,
Although having said that there is a very high possibility that you are going to clip your foot or ankle on it if you do. If you are looking to clip a pump to your frame I would not be suggesting this one.
