Strengths:    Build Quality

Weaknesses:    Bearings

Bottom Line:   
I like the Hadley hubs a lot. They roll faster and smoother than any other hubs I've owned. The only problem is the bearings Hadley uses seem to be on the soft side. My rear hub bearings failed after 3 months and were replaced under warranty, no questions asked, and have been solid ever since. My front bearings went bad after 3 years, which isn't too bad but I have never had a front hub go out in 20 years of riding. The front bearings are only $20 and a breeze to replace, so not a huge deal.

Strengths:    Better / cheaper / lighter than Chris Kings, 9mm through axle front (sweeeeet!!!!!!!!)

Weaknesses:    Hummmm??? No web site. Must be spending too much time building quality products.

Bottom Line:   
I have an obsession / sickness with mountain bikes. Light FR, SS, trail, CC you name it. I have been riding m-bikes since the late 80’s (yea I am old) and the only road riding I do is in the parking lot at the trail head or on my street making adjustments. No disrespect but I would rather take my chances with the mountain lions vs DUI drivers.

These are currently the best hubs on the market. Light, strong hand made, reasonable cost and now come in various colors (if you are into that). The new ratcheting mechanism has near instant engagement. Easy to adjust (not like the Chris King disks with the HD axle (Nightmare and always come loose!)

Strengths:    This is a product update. The Hadley front disc hub is a great hub that I have used for years. The sealed cartidge bearings are top qualtiy and still super smooth with no servicing.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
In my opinion, the best hubs you will ever find at any cost. Built to last and take any abuse you can throw at them. I have three sets of Hadley disc hubs and that's all I will use.

Strengths:    Does it all: light quiet and reliable. Also have great customer support. It gets beaten to death on my dual suspension offroad tandem. Built up with Rhino light rims. Really the ultimate test of a rim. Also looks great,

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
Just a great product with great support. They have a lot of experience with tandem hubs, which seems to be the best test of a hub.
