    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 donīt skip 170mm and go straight to 190mm!
    Iīm looking forward to see some 190ers, though.

    The more extensive the opportunities, the better.

    It would be nice if they make the front 15mm compatible and offer a butt load of colors

    I'm sure they will be both of those.

    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.
