Hubs: an unpaid endorsment

OK, Hubs a little unglamorous but pretty important. A few brands seem to get all the rave reviews but as I was doing some maintenance after the week end it struck me just how good mine were.

This is a Hadley DHS XL 150. I first built it into a wheel in 2005 on my Cove Peeler. Cost a fortune at the time but they were a hub I'd always wanted to try.

It's had a few rim replacement, been on another 2 frames (Norco A Atomkic and now the M6) and hasn't had one single bit of maintenance.

Zip, nil, nothing, Not a drop off oil, a bit of grease or even a pull down to clean.
