    Hadley Hubs??

    Anybody know where I can get some solid info on Hadley hubs? I'm looking for a 20mm front hub and a 10mm TA rear hub. I can't locate a website with any real info. I'm building up a Banshee Morphine and I want some burly hubs. Any advice or feedback from Hadley riders?

    Thanks,

    Porch

    I'll tell you to search the web. this way you don't feel bad if no one answers you! Just build it already and quit your "searching" Hugi FR are dope. Kings are cool too.

    Love my Hadley 20 front hub. Gonna lace up a rear as soon as $300+ more surplus $$$ fall out of my butt.

    I love my Hadleys, probably the best hubs I've ever had. They require little maintainance as well.
    Balleracing has them for about the same price as anywhere else (www.balleracing.com) and he's a local retailer. go-ride has them, and I'm sure you can get them elsewhere as well. Those are just the two I know of.

    Liked it so much bought another...

    I just bought my second Hadley 108 point freehub. The first is still in use and works flawlessly. Instant engagement.

    I am going to build this one next week..

    Hadley 108pt 10mm Titanium T/A Hub

    Mavic EX823 rim

    Sapim CX-Ray spokes

    Should be sweet..... Here is a couple of pics of the hub.

    Ditto for me. I've been riding Hadley's for the last couple of years and though I've owned several sets of Kings over the years, I like the Had's better.

    Smokin! Nice looking Hadley TA, the gold is bit*chin! Do all of the 10mm rear TA have 108 point engagement?
    I've made up my mind that the Hadleys are the right Hubs for my Morphine, just gotta decide where to order them from. Plus like all the rest of us - I have to find that tin can of 20's I burried in the back ard back in 86. Thanks for all the feedback!! I post more new pics of the Morphine as soon as I get some new parts.

    I could be mistaken but I believe ALL of the Hadleys now come with the offset pawls (108pt engagement).

    I bought mine from mtbstore.com because they're local if you're in the Los Angeles area. Speedgoat.com has free shipping ANYWHERE in the lower 48, you can try there as well. Be prepared to add $60.00 - $80.00 to the $250.00 price on most sites for the Titanium 10mm through axle option though...

    Good luck and post some pictures when you build 'em up!

    I'm looking forward to seeing pics of the Morphine - those look like sweet rides. I may be posting some pics of a new top-secret FR hardtail myself within the next few months. Those morphines look incredibly stout - what does the frame weigh?

    Did I say "top secret"? Because I meant to say "Super Duper Top Secret" - the only thing that I can tell you about it right now is that the entire frame will consist of hand carved teak, with faux ivory inlays and will be absolutely sick.

    Oh yeah - and I reckon it will be my Super D secret weapon.

    Thanks Jeff. Yeah, I do have some Hadley's in stock, though I'm waiting on the 108pt rear hubs at the moment. I have 20mm front in black and the standard 36pt engagement rear hub. Be happy to help out Porch if you want some.

    I just made an order with Hadley. The 108pt engagement is an option, not standard.

    Any personal experience with the 108? I got the idea that the standard (36) could be a little bit stronger, so no reason to run the 108 on a downhill bike. I'm sure either would outlive a DH frame.

    Hadley said they would have to roll out a website soon to curb the rumors.

    I have been using the 108pt all year with zero problems. As I stated in another post, I purchased a second one for my other bike.. So yeah, I kinda like it.

    I too was concerned with strength as only one pawl engages at a time (as opposed to the thirty six's all three) but quickly decided the benefit outweighs the penalty. I could be wrong but I would guess a XC rider is harder on freewheel pawls than a downhill rider given the fact that they hammer UP the hills instead of down them.

    I weigh 180# with gear and regularly take 4-5ft to flats urban riding and 8-10ft to trannies on the mountain.

    Works like the day I installed it.

    If your riding involves technical sections you'll appreciate the 108.

    Good luck!

    Double Top Secret Probation

    Yo s1ngletrack - Using a very advanced and highly unreliable meathod, the home digital scale... my Morphine (size M) weighs in at a whopping 7 pounds!! But that's with a FSA Pig pressed. I allready got a trail bike I can do the lightweight thing with, this time it's different. I'm so excited to build it up, I hope to be able to finnish it by march.

    PM sent.

    Hadley hubs are awsome! Info is hard to find, bad reviews really hard to find.

    I should have some 10mm bolt on 108 pt hubs next week.
