    Final new hub decision

    So I'm going to try and order my wheel set before go-ride closes tonight, and I have to make a decisions, so help me I'm a whore and can't think for myself. It's between Hadley’s and Hope bulbs. Looking for lightweight, dependability, and low maintenance. The cost difference between the two (Hadley’s cost more) is enough for a new set of Michy DH tires.

    I don't know if weight is an issue but Hadley's have the titanium cassette interface. I vote Hadley's but I don't know jack about Hope's so don't value my opinion too highly.

    never rode the hopes...Hadley's are made by Fontana (Cali Biz) I know a person who has been riding his for 5 years...just changes the rims.....No problems on mine. Still smooth, never re-tightened or anything after a year
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    good point, especially for those riding in socal.
    my friend just got the hadley's, they make a loud buzz noise, it's cool, the pitch and volume gets higher the faster you go.
