    Very cool. more jumping in.

    I've always thought the sound of the I9 rear hubs to sound a bit weird though (not loud, but just more hollow-metallic than other hubs)

    What issues are you having, just curious as I have a couple sets and zero issues? My experience with Hope is they take care of you if you are having issues. have you talked to them?

    Last time I mentioned the thought of an i9 fat hub I received a neg rep, I love my I9's!! I do believe the Phil 170mm hub is using I9 internals but I can't be fur shure.

    Bearings in fh went bad after 100ish miles. Lbs replaced them and they exploded after maybe 50 miles. They did send me a complete steal fh assembly as a replacement.

    I did talk to them and they were helpful. Kinda sucked that there was only one person at hope who really knew anything technical about them.

    Yes it does. However since I'm just down the road from I9, it will be nice to be able to support them and be rolling a complete locally produced hub.

    Glad they dont skip 170mm and go straight to 190mm!
    Im looking forward to see some 190ers, though.

    The more extensive the opportunities, the better.

    Paul is based off the old heavy hub with huge bearing on the outside of the cassette
    the I9 is the new torch series hub "lighter" small bearing under cassette ..
    my 135mm old school I9 hub is going strong into its 3rd season
    I am slow therefore I am

    I have Pro 2 EVO rear hubs on my all mountain bike and have had a similar experience. Cracked two alloy freehubs along the key spline and the bearings in the steel freehub exploded after low mileage. On the second steel fh now and if this one blows I'm moving on. I think they increased the axle diamter with the EVO hubs so the bearings are thinner now and in my experience they may not be up to the job.

    When I cracked one of my fh the whole unit seized, ripping my dropout and destroyed my rear derailleur. $70 dropout (Intense), $300 SRAM X0 rd, $100 steel freehub....not a cheap mechanical.

    There was this update on bikerumor a week ago:
    Endless Shows Off Prototype Single Chainrings, Industry Nine Fat Bike Hubs Spotted

    Did you try e-mailing I9? They've always been pretty responsive when I've hit them up in the past.

    Looking at the i9 fatbike hubs for a HED wheelset on my Farley, which has a 170mm x 12mm rear hub. Can you use the 12mm endcaps on the 170mm rear hubs or are they QR only?

    My friend picked up the HED's with i9 hubs for his Salsa Beargrease, which uses through axles on both ends. I believe the answer is yes but you need to confirm which caps to use with i9.

    Thanks - just reached out to i9 directly they said they could set up a 170x12ta on the rear. Quick response - now to decide spoke colors!

    I've ridden i9 hubs for the last 4 or 5 years and never had a problem. I put 2,500 miles on my fat bike hubs and at least 1,000 of them were way below freezing and a good portion of the miles were in the single digits and I never had a problem.

    I also ride with about 15 other i9 Fat Bike riders and not a one of them have ever complained.

    In total I bet I have put over 15,000 miles on my i9 hubs on various bikes and I will be buying i9's from here on out.

    Ok, anybody in here actually get out and ride, or are all I9 riders just armchair mechanics?

    Thanks for the insight. The lbs wrench said the freehub mechanism doesn't like the cold and wood malfunction. I am glad I asked someone who actually uses them in the real world.

    Seems odd that he would say that. Sounds like a disgruntled bike mechanic.

    I had a set of I9's built up to the Lamere rims in November. We saw temps of -5 to -10F without issue so far this year. We will hit -30F air temp here, but if they rolled free at -10 I'm not too worried.

    My old Shimano XT/Large Marge wheels hated anything below 0.

    I was talking to the guys at twenty2 cycles in Glenwood Springs, CO last weekend, and they told me that they rode the hubs down to -40f last winter, no problems.

    If there is some other thread that I should use or look into please advice.

    I noted this "I've seen two other options 1) LBS buys an i9 (that's what I got) or 2) LBS gets a new wheel - Marge Lite and Hope hub (a friend of mine got that)."

    I have a Kona Wo 2016, what are my options for upgrading the freehub and at what cost?
