    Does anyone know if a set of 2011 Industry Nine wheels will work on a 2011 Epic? 142?

    Like I said in the title, how can I get these wheels to work on my 2011 Epic Comp Carbon? Do I need a special adapter? I e-mailed I9 a few weeks ago and never got a response from them. I know I've read some people on here have these wheels and they ordered a 142 rear axle, but I see no such product on I9's website.

    I am looking to upgrade to these soon. Thanks for any info.

    I believe someone has them on a black S-works 29er, check in the 2011 29er thread

    Yeah I thought so too, I've been trying to track down exactly what is needed. Like precisely what did he buy to make it work? I'll try to call I9 tomorrow and narrow it down I guess, hopefully they can tell me.

    You need to get an axle converter kit...I believe its going from a 130 to a 142

    If you do get set up successfully, please share what you did, good luck. Would like I-9s laced to Crest or similar.

    Compatable Hubs are on this link and the I-9's are on board.

    The converter is somewhat explained on this link.

    I'm running I9s laced to Stan's ZTR rims on my 2011 Epic Expert Evo R 29er without any problems. I got them through I9 set up as 142. You just need the coversion kit to make it work. Give them a call or find your closest I9 dealer.

    Try contacting I9 again. I had some questions for them and they were quick to respond and answered all of my questions.
