    rear hub for clydesdale

    I chipped the paws on the spin doctor hub. The new hub might be a dt swiss 36h 135mm disk td540 or maybe something else like CK, Hadley. Your thoughts. me 6'5" about 300 can leg press a subaru.

    CK with Stainless Steel FH Body or Hadley would be great the choices. The DT 540 would work too...dare I say a little bit overkill

    6'4", 315 and can leg press a smart car. Last year I upgraded to a DT 440 FR hub and has been working awesome.

    I recently ruined an XT hub and stripped the cassette on a DT Swiss 340. Rebuilt the 340, threw the XT away and spoke with Hadley. They said their hub with a steel cassette will live up to my tomfoolery.

    Been using CK HDs with steel FH body since blowing thru Shimano and Sun-Ringle Jumping Fleas that came on bikes, so far bulletproof. For the 135mm wide CK on my RIP9 I went with 10mm funbolts(other is 150x12mm thru bolt), very solid. Though the funbolt heads do not fit in all dropouts as they're pretty wide.

    Hadley +1

    Hadley, simple, elegant, bombproof. Take a look inside before you buy and you will be convinced. The 72 point engagement is a nice plus also! Hope this helps.

    I LOVE my Hope Pro II with the steel body and at less that $200 it won't break the bank.

    My last and fourth shimano rear hub stripped out on the 1st ride (the others lasted a month or two). Switched to DT 340 more than a year ago and have had no problems. However, I am "only" about 235-240.

    As good as the others...I have road at 320 pounds on my Hope and I am not too shabby in the strength department and I have not had any problems.

    1. CK and Hadley both beat HOpe in the engagement department.
    2. I cracked my HOPE freehub body - grenaded the hub. Probably an anomoly, but mine wasn't the only one. I'd buy another, but given the opportunity, I went ahead and grabbed a bolt on CK that has been just fine.

    Do the Hadley hubs require as much maintenance as the CK?

    I understand Hadley hubs can be serviced with regular tools where you need special Chris King tools to service a CK. Not necessarily a bad thing, I have a couple of CK bottom brackets and I use their tool to grease it. I think the wheel tools are pretty costly, though.

    Damn I just looked up the prices of the tools needed to service the hubs.
    I just bought a new CK hub and 521 mavic wheel this weekend brand new for dirt cheap. I never thought to look up the prices of the tools.....ehhh

    The only hub I have ever serviced is my Hadley and it was cake. Just followed the guide online. You need a red park spanner and something else, can't remember, way cheaper than King's though. Great customer service as well. If you need something give them a call, you have even odds of talking to the guy that made and or designed what you are calling about.
