    Once in a while you come across a company that puts out a top notch product, and then stands behind it exceeding all expectations.

    Hadley is definitely on that short list.
    Did anyone have Sue contact information just like email or phone nos.?
    Or where can I find it?

    7 year old Hadleys here... indeed, bomb proof under my weight, and I put a lot of miles per year on mine. Customer Service, when I rarely need it, is awesome.

    I got Hadley Hubs never use at the moment Front 20mm Thru-Axle x 110mm (H600110 DH Type), Hadley Red SDH Disc Rear Hub QR x 135mm.
    Any opinion from the end user or would be possible a voice from the manufacturer's technician. Is it advisable to upgrade the existing bearing to boca bearing full ceramic is there any technical disadvantage in terms of original design of the hubs and what is my expectation if rolls with upgrade bearings.

    Bump. Just because.

    Best customer service in the business and they still don't have a website. I kinda like that in today's world.

    Bottom line: Hadley Hubs last a long time and in the long run they are cheaper then those discounted other hubs after you replace them a few times and not worth the headache either.....

    that was post was from 2009.....I am still riding same hubs....and converting to 157 hub for carbon V10 was super easy....unscrew a bolt (axle) and take off nut (other side of axle) and it is done...simplicity and they work...also now using a set of Hadley's on Wife's bike ( 4 years old now)

    12 year old and 4 year old Hadley's....BECAUSE THEY WORK !!!!

    I have 2 sets of hubs on bikes and one set on wife's Ibis mojo. And somewhere, someone is riding a set on my stolen 2008 Ventana El Ciclon.

    They may not have a website but you can call and Suzanne will pick up on the 2nd ring. Try getting someone to answer the phone at CK. Not.

    CK will pick up, but expect some attitude. It's like they think they make the bee's knees of things, while they can't even copy Cane Creek's headsets well enough so their HS' don't clunk. I mean, what remedial mechanical engineer would use a compressible element (o-ring) in the headset top cap so the wedge ring can shift around!?

    Go Hadley. They use standard bearings, so you can source replacements from anywhere...and even ceramics w/o costing you your left nut!
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.
