have found very little. i have a set of World Class hubs and know that hadley may have designed or even manufactured them. seen a few tandem and mtb hubs but i cant be the only owner of the road hubs made.

picked them up on ebay as a speculater and have been very happy.

any info appreciated.

ciao, ben

I'm not 100% on this, but I think they are the same thing. Actually, I think that World Class manufactures Hadley components exclusively for Santana Cycles.

While Santana is mainly a tandem bicycle manufacturer, they did produce a few mountain bikes in the early 90's when they were experimenting with Columbus Nivacrome tubes. Likewise, they produced a few Scandium road frames last year to experiment with that material. I'd suspect that your hubs might have had something to do with that.
maybe i do have the only set known....dupe

the above site is the closest i have come. my hubs are almost the same as the lower ones, but of course narrower in the rear and without as many spoke holes on the hub flanges. they ride and roll fine.

i didn't think they were that obscure.

thanks for the info.
where are the 170mm ones !Cyclorocket

My oncle got a Santana with a hadley hubset, 170mm rear, yes 170mm is not standard but it's 170mm.

They don't look like these !, they seem more though (heavy too)

they are flawless.

I'll bet they're only 160mm.nee Spoke Wrench

Santana and a few other tandem makers use 160mm rear dropout spacing. It allows them to use a hub or disc brake on the left side, use reasonably wide spread hub flanges, and provide a totally dishless 9-speed rear wheel.

I have a set of wheels I built using the second gerneration of hubs they built for GT. They are great hubs. I had to contact them about bearing adjustment, and found the owner answering the phone of all things. They are way cool, and shipped me the replacement bearings for free. They are in Upland California(LA area for those not from LA)and the number is 909-946-6780.
thanks man nmdupe
