Who can tell me anything at all about these hubs? I bought them locally from a dude who said they were made by Hadley for GT. They are laced up to some Sun Rhyno Lite hoops, and came with two extra brand new freehub bodies that I don't have pics of.
So what do you all know about these? I've searched with no luck. Found nothing as far as a website or anything. I'm deeply curious as these are some super bada$$ hubs and sound like a King.
Thanks for the help!!

Hadley is a small "mom n pop" type of shop in the US - maybe California? Anyways, from everything I have ever read, they seem to make a great high-engagement(72 pt) hub. Hadley doesn't have a website - a google search should turn up their phone number. I would pick up a pair for myself, but they seem so difficult to get my hands on and after all I have no reason to stray from King.

They are bad ass hubs.
Run 'em until they have issues, which may end up being a while. If/when you need bearings or other small parts, they are super responsive via the phone, and get parts out quickly.
Those are pretty old though - not sure how much support thay still provide for those, but I'd bet they'd do you best to help out with any issues.

They are the hubs of the Gods. Seriously solid hubs, I would take a pair over just about any other hub on the market.

Thanks for the help guys - this is more than I've dug up in 2 years of not so serious digging. I'll give the phone number a ring and see what turns up!
Funny thing is, I only paid 40 bux for the wheelset and the 2 extra freehub bodies!
