Strength:

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.

Weakness:

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

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.

Strength:

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

Aerospace quality machining, choice of anodize colors.

Durable

Weakness:

A little heavy. A bit too blingy in colors.

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.

Strength:

Weight strength and quality of finish, and super smooth

Weakness:

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

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.

This hub needed one freeplay adjustment in all that time including lots of mud rides and a handfull of downhill events. I ran a Cris in back and just had it overhauled for the 3 rd time to keep up with the front .

Strength:

Smooth feeling, finnsih, strenght? and looks!

Weakness:

Not cheap.

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!

Strength:

The hub has been bullet proof. I have beat the hell out of it with no real problems. I have a M-1 Intense and the hub is laced to a 321 mavic rim.

Weakness:

The non disk side flange unscrews it self, It even comes loose after a bit of loctite

This hub is a quality product but not cheap
