Date Reviewed: June 3, 2010

Strengths:    Customer service is off the charts incredible. I flogged the disc side lock ring trying to remove it with the park spanner to regrease the bearings. Called Hadley up and a new lock ring and tool were sent out on the spot. 15mm to 20mm conversions, no problem with the right tools. Call hadley and get their spanner, the park spa2 barely works.

Weaknesses:    Need a spanner(spa2) and cone wrenches(25/21)

Bottom Line:   
I'll be buying more of their stuff based on their service alone. Call them up and they will take care of you. I hate the need for proprietary tools but since they offer them so cheap its worth it.

Date Reviewed: November 3, 2009

Strengths:    Fully convertible, 20mm, 15mm Maxle, 9mm and QR. Another Hadley first, the front is convertible.

Aerospace quality machining, choice of anodize colors.

Durable


Weaknesses:    A little heavy. A bit too blingy in colors.

Bottom Line:   
Almost 3000 miles, 600,000 vertical feet, in 9 months. Service the rear every 3 months, nothing on the front, no high pressure hoses for cleaning, spins smooth as the day I got them.

Common sense and proper care, cleaning and lube service will make these last a long, long time.

Date Reviewed: February 21, 2007

Strengths:    Smooth feeling, finnsih, strenght? and looks!

Weaknesses:    Not cheap.

Bottom Line:   
The machine bearings in the DMR hub had to be replaced sooner than later and when I ordered Hadley's rear hub I thought why not go with their front hub also. I doubt I will regret that decision! :)

Along with the hub you get complete 'blueprints' of the hub and partnumbers for all the possible spare parts you might need. (Hopefully never!)

The build quality feels as rock solid as the rear hub, when it 's time for eventuall service it seems to be pretty straight forward procedure.

Right now I could not be more pleased, I will make a new review if I change my mind!

Strengths:    Weight strength and quality of finish, and super smooth

Weaknesses:    none, zip, nada, limited supply ( thats because the demand for quality is so much )

Bottom Line:   
Super quality and finish. I am british so should support Hope but they don't compare and seize if they see mud or water. These are super tough and smooth, worth every single penny.

I wanted to give my WTB 20mm front hub a looking into early in its life and probably add some grease to avoid a possibly nasty situation down the trail.
