    BLING BLING Bike Pics

    I understand that mountain bikes are ment for riding and crashing up, but since it has been raining and the season is coming to an end I want to see how I can spice up my bike. I LOVE red parts. So i thought it would be fun to have you guys post your bike or other peoples bikes that you have seen on here to give ideas of what I can buy this winter.

    Shade your eyes

    Here is an older pic of my I9 rear wheel. They've changed a few things, like the exposed bearing seal. The wheels ride even better than they look.

    You can get red spokes too...

    The Blingest looking bike I've seen in a long time

    Larry's Delirium is the blingest looking bike I've seen in a long time. And it has a lot of red parts too!

    That's a beautiful hub there Pig. Very nice. Do you know if those are available in blue as well?

    Red spokes coupled with a red hub would over do it for me, but htats just my personal opinion. Don't forget that you can get red hubs and red spoke nipples. That would be a little bit of a flash, especially with silver spokes.

    The world's your oyster

    You can get any color hub and spoke combination your heart desires from I9.

    I've seen blue, black, silver, green, black, pink, gold, copper. They'll even do fades on the spokes.

    The spokes don't use nipples, they just thread directly into the hub.

    Lots of red bits here that you don't 'need' but could certainly take you desire for red bits to the next level ...
    • Headset caps and bolts (customizable)
    • Spacers (customizable)
    • Valve Stem Covers
    • Bar end caps (customizable)
    • Bottle cage screws

    I've only gone red on the valve stem covers but am thinking of going red on the bar end caps. Maybe for less than $100 you could pimp out your ride and have a Yoyo for your winter fun

    Know of any online dealers? I'd like to check out some prices, but I can't seem to find them anywhere

    Yea, those are the same ones I found, but they didn't have the blue coloring (though I'm sure they could get it).

    Thanks for your help though

    I've ordered a custom headset cap from them and they are great to do business with. The cap arrived fast and looked great! Awesome etching and coloring.

    Only warning about them, if you decide to order one, the bolt that goes down through the headset cap that you get from them is SOFT as BUTTER. SO be VERY careful you don't strip it.

    nah...check with Larry (ventanarama) for sure on the I9 wheels....Larry has got to be the biggest, or one of the biggest, I9 dealers, period.

    hey Scott...sup dawg?

    anyway, guess it depends on what your priorities are....width? weight? price? etc....

    i posted this earlier on the Ventana forum so i had it handy. here are some good rims with some specs that may help...for my bike being built (all mountain/tiny bit of aggro planned....for me anyway), i went with DT Swiss 5.1. for me, more than enough with a great weight/strength ratio. For others they would be too girly....so again, all depends

    * Mavic XM819; weight=510 grams, outside width=23mm (19mm inside), height=21mm

    * DT Swiss EX5.1d; weight=500 grams, outside width=28mm, height=20mm

    * DT Swiss XR4.1d; weight=425 grams, outside width=21.6mm, height=20.5mm

    * Syncros DP25; weight=510 grams, outside width=25mm, height=22mm

    * Syncros DS28; weight=540 grams, outside width=28mm, height=26mm

    * Mavic XM321; weight(listed)=570 grams, outside width=28mm (21mm inside), height/depth=20mm

    * DT Swiss FR6.1d; weight=635 grams, outside width=32mm, height=24mm<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    Red? I'm in!

    Y'all gotta step it up a notch, though. No one with red hardware? Tsk tsk tsk.

    Got red King hubs ready to be built up. Just gotta decide on rims and then build them upwith red nipples. Waiting on the infamous SRAM cassette.

    Enjoy.

    check with your local shop, they may get a better price.
    Do not purchase Industry Nine Wheels from Beyond Bikes website!
    They have our wheels up on their site without our permission and they are not an authorized dealer.
    We will only allow online sales through 2 dealers which will be established in the near future. Until then, ANYONE offering online web sales of Industry Nine wheels is doing so against our policies and orders will not be honored.
    Industry Nine is committed to supporting the independent retailer and will only allow online sales through a limited number of web retailers who will uphold our standards of customer service, product and pricing integrity.
    If you are seeking information or pricing, feel free to call or e-mail us and we can get you all the information you need. Our website is desperately needing updating and until that happens, check with us to find out where to purchase wheels in your area.

    Red!!

    The HONKA HOOTA horn is always a good addition!!! It's hard to see, but there's glitter in the horn. If that's not bling, I don't know what is!!!
