    New SIR SS, what wheels are you running?

    Like the title says, I am building up a New SIR and I am leaning towards a I9 hub build so I can run a SS hub and still have the 12x142. I am just wondering what everybody is running on the new SIR SS with the lack of 12x142 SS hub avaliblility.

    Thanks, I wish the 12x142 would start moving to the SS hubs already, I I9 is the only SS hub I have found that is compatible with a 12x142 conversion.

    I think Hadley and sun ringle both make 12x142 Ss hubs. I chose the geared American classic because of the steel inserts on the hub body so the ss cog wouldn't chew threw it and I would still be able add some shifty parts if I wanted in the future.

    I actually really like AC stuff, and I would be all over that if they had a 12x142 SS hub. I have a few months before I can even get out on my trails maybe something will pop up between now and then.

    I am running I9 SS Hubs on my 1st Gen SIR and absolutely love them. Great engagement and they roll for ever. A little spendy, but well worth it based on my experience.

    I believe you can convert a Chris king SS hub from 135 to 142mm:

    No you can't convert the CK SS hub. So far the only one I have for for sure does is the I9. Which is cool with me I really like their hubs.

    Project 321 has a 12x142 SS hub that uses I9 internals.

    I'm running arch ex with hope evo 2's on my new SIR. I was going to get a set of i9 torches, but I'm too rough on wheels to spend on bling.
    I'm going to get a set of stock crests with the 12x142 rear axle to race on.

    You can't beat the I9 hubs. I've got the non-SS version of the new Trail 24s, and I love them.
