    Industry 9 rear hub?

    Been wanting a I9 single speed hub for a while. I have been riding a dt240 full cassette hub and swapped it for the I9. Yes it is loud but I feel like it does not coast as well as the dtswiss240. I am thinking that maybe the dtswiss was so quiet the I9 is throwing me off. I love the engagement of the I9 just not sure of coasting abilities? Oh it spins well on the stand but not as long as dtswiss, don't think that means much anyway.

    My I9 Torches loosened up after a couple of rides. When new the drag was horrible even in the stand.

    Are you using the original design or the new Torch hub design? The new Torch supposedly has less drag than the original.

    It is the Torch. When brand new, the had some drag in the stand. Two rides later, next time it was in the stand, it was gone.

    Mine has no drag now, it only had some when it was new. IMHO I9's are the best hubs money can buy.

    These are not the torch. I got em lightly used from another member. I see I can adjust the bearing cap with allen key, maybe I need to loosen? Maybe needs bearings?
