    DT Swiss SS hubs? (maybe Hadley's)

    I just found out that the DT Swiss SS hubs come with the center lock rotor mounting system licensed by Shimano, Inc. In order to run my Hope Mini's I have to use a centerlock adapter. I don't like the idea of using an adapter. Can a Shimano Rotor be used with Hope mini brakes. If I have to use an adapter, I think I will start researching Hadley or Chris King. Anyone have an experience with Hadley's?

    i think DT Swiss has a full complement of hubs ie centerlock, 6 bolt and non-disc for your riding pleasure.

    I'm going with Hadley

    I was looking at this choice a few weeks ago and opted for the Hadleys, they're pretty, very durable and have super fast engagement. The Kings had potential disc/fork clearance issues,were hard to find currently, and the price just jumped. I was not real keen on the DT 240s adaptors (also availability was an issue). Two wheelbuilders I spoke with recommended the Hadleys. I'm still waiting on rims, so I cant tell you yet how I like them, but the engagement is very fast and they have neat Ti bits including freehub body I believe. They are still heavier than the others though if weight is a deciding factor

    I may be wrong here, but I don't think king makes an ISO disc ss hub? I spoke with them last summer about getting some hubs, and they told me all of there ss hubs require their 6 bolt adapter. So, you'd still be running an adapter....

    Personally, I'd be all over some hadley's or white industries if I could afford'em. Both awesome hubs, with great company's behind them.

    The CK SS disc hub uses an adaptor, too.

    I think the DT centerlock to 6-bolt is pretty slick. Slides on the hub. slide on the rotor and put on the lock ring.

    Does that adapter work with any rotor? I heard somewhere that it doesn't work with all of the Magura rotors.

    The Magura centerlock adaptor does not work with most non-Magura rotors.

    I think the DT Swiss is universal.

    The SS hub is Centerlock only. They do not even make a non-disc version.

    That adaptor is tough as woodpecker lips!
    Great design- does it work as good as it looks?

    I just installed a set Avid mechanicals using the DTswiss adaptor. It seems really solid and secure. Just make sure you really crank down the adaptor ring so the rotor does not slip or move slightly. I also put a small amount of blue lock tighton the ring as well.
