It's really a bummer sometimes when you read about folks having problems with their wheels, bearings or hubs whining on MTBR. Well, there is a solution: Support companies that have great support and service. You rarely hear when it goes right.
I'd like to share a positive experience I had with Hadley hubs. First off, they are easy to work on. Give them a call at 909 946-6780 M-F 8:30 to 5 pm Pacific time. Secondly, they almost always have the part you need in stock.
I've put 800 miles on mine in 2.5 months, riding them hard. I weigh 240 pounds wet. Hadley hubs are Clyde friendly, and have great engagement.
Mike has always been able to get me up and running again promptly, with parts, lube and advice. If you can not get it sorted out yourself, send your wheel in and Mike will take care of it. The only wear items I've seen on my hubs was bearings and pawls needing R & R. My hubs are from 2004 and still rolling and going strong. I will probably get 5000 miles on my Niner this year, no problem, on Hadley hubs.

I've had nothing but the best of service from them, and can say also the same from Niner Bicycles. Choosing makers with exemplary service has made my life easier and stress free, and has proven to me to be worth the investment.
In this day and age, businesses that do right by you should be rewarded with your business. It's rare, and refreshing to find it out there.
