    Can Hadley rear hubs be rebuilt ie 150/12mm to 135/10mm ?

    I can get a slightly used 150mm/12mm Hadley rear wheel for a good price , but i need a 135mm/10mm rear. Are the Hadley hubs built so that I can just order a conversionkit
    ( say from Go-Ride ) and make it work (maybe with a redishing ?)
    Cheers Caspar

    Nope, I checked into this when I bought a frame with 150mm rear spacing. I already had a 135mm rear wheel with Hadley. Unfortunately Hadley said the hub bodies are totally different from 135mm to 150mm and there's no conversion. Sucks to have to buy another hub, but buy another Hadley.

    Now I just wonder what the conversionkits are used for then.

    The conversion kits allow you to change the axle from say bolt on,thru axle as well as axle diameter.

    The coversion kits are for standard width Hadley hubs. You can convert a Hadley SDH QR 135mm wide hub to a 10mm thru-axle x 135mm, 12mm thru-axle x 135mm, 15mm thru-axle x 135mm. The 150mm wide hub uses a wider hub shell (SDH XL). I have also had Hadley build up a 15mm thru-axle x 122mm wide flush mount for a customer using a Yeti with a floating brake and a 20mm to 15mm Yeti step-down axle.
