    Hadley Hub Service Guide By Go-Ride.com

    Hey fellas,
    I have put together a service guide for rebuilding Hadley rear hubs.

    This is meant to be a routine maintenence reference for the average rider. If your hub is fully seized and you're not experienced in pressing out bearings you probably will want a good tech to do it for you. For this reason removal of the cartridge bearings is not included.

    However, cleaning the pawls and needle bearings along with inspection of the seals should be done regularly and is quite simple.

    That is some good stuff Krispy!!
    But does Go-Ride stock bearings and seals for Hadley's?

    edit:
    "Hadley is hard to get ahold of so we (Go-Ride) stock all the service parts here. Hadley gives us bags of pawl kits and seals whenever we need them. Give me a ring if you need parts."

    I just saw this in another post. Keep up the good work guy's!

    It should only be 1 spring! Maybe that's why you're having problems!

    Thank you for putting this information the this site. It has been a great help.

    I have a question regarding Hadley hubs. My girlfriend’s Hadley hub has been sticking intermittently (the chain jerks forward, and then the hub slips like it should, then it sticks again, etc). I took the freehub off, cleaned out he debris inside (which consisted of some small metal chips), cleaned the pawls and put it back together. I used bike grease as my lube for the hub.

    Well, the hub still has the same issue. When the wheel is spun on the bike without load, the freehub ratchets freely. But when coasting with a rider's weight on the wheel, the same sticking behavior is observed. Any idea of what the problem might be?

    Thanks.

    I figured it out. The two radial bearings were worn out -- the had too much radial play which allow the whole axle assembly to cock and bind up a little bit.

    My LBS is ordering the bearings and is going to press them in for me.

    Hey thanks Krispy, I've been meaning to tear mine apart for months. (the pedals turn when you push the bike, must be drag in the freehub)
