I've got this GT front hub, i thought i'd seen it in a GT Catalogue but can't find it now. Does anyone know anything about it?

I think they are called Hadley .
2 versions were available , one very expensive , and a normal one . all to do with the bearings if i remember right .

I know there where a few variants of those hubs. I had some black ones just like that one (lookwise externally) - they came off an lts team, think they were called mohawk? had ceramic bearings & a hollow axle. They were quite expensive & there were also cheaper versions - not sure which yours is?

Hope that rambling is of some use :oops:

Drapoon - hub bodies look the same but your spindle/cone is different?

I think this is would suggest tallpauls is the cheaper bearing version?

I know the uber expensive hubs retailed at £350 for the pair or summit stoopid. My rear hub snapped & GT gave me an xtr as a replacement!

I'm guessing they're the cheaper versions...

Kev did you buy them as a pair with the LX? I assume as the rims match they came from a mid-spec LX equipped GT.

98 gt backwoods came with the cheaper hubs - a friend had one. These were lx/xt equipped I believe?
