    New question here. Paul or Hadley hubset?

    My first venture into 29er SS and going for another custom wheel set.

    Been a King user for a while and want to try other hubsets.

    My reason for either the Paul or Hadley is because both offer matching bolt on front and rear hubs.

    Gotta represent the businesses here in Cali as well.

    I'm 175lbs on the hoof plus gear if that matters.

    The curbed weightweenie is curious as well.

    I am all ears!

    Thx

    Don't have any experience with Paul hubs but have been a Hadley user for years and they certainly do not disappoint. Customer service, build quality and durability are all top notch. Not the lightest but definitely the most durable and worry free amongst the high end hubs that I have used which includes King, Hope, dt swiss 240 and 440, i9 and easton

    I just built a SS wheelset(my first) using a Hadley hub on the rear. The rear hub weighs 360g including 10mm axle. I'm loving the wheelset and especially the rear hub! The 72 tooth engagement is awesome in technical terrain!

    Paul will be a set chain-line unless you're using their cassette hub. so depending on what bb your frame has, it could be limiting to dial in a good chainline with the only variable being the cranks. i have pauls on my sscx bike and love them, but I've always used hope ss hubs for my mtb's. the mini cassette makes setup much easier, especially in my case using a bb30 crankset that cannot really be adjusted left or right without shady spacers.

    The Paul cassette hub uses Industry Nine internals.

    My buddy ran pauls for years, never had an issue. I just ordered a set myself, and a set of stans crests. I'm confident that they'll be some killer wheels.
    Calmer'n you are.

    Paul hubs use Endura Bearings which most companies charge extra for.

    Paul hubs for sure! Light and reliable. A Paul WORD hub paired up with a White Industries Trials freewheel is about the same weight as a rear SS King setup, IIRC. Though, you'd be stuck with a chainline with about 54mm.

    I have to echo Paul hubs....mine have been awesome. I am sure Hadleys are awesome too though. Seen here with WI trials freewheel, Crests and DTsupercomps have served me well so far. The wheelset weighed 1545g minus freewheel and skewer/bolts. That's a Whub and word disc. Oh, could be Revs I think...the 20/1.5 spokes
