    Got me some purty new wheels

    Picked these up from Industry Nine yesterday, super nice guys up there. I got to pick my wheels up from the guys that built them, then got to ride the pump track at their HQ while I was there. Now just to get the foes back and get these things mounted up.

    How much were the wheels, if you don't mind me asking? I've been trying to determine how much I'm gonna have to go into debt for these.

    You'd need to talk to industry nine at www.industrynine.net, but it'll be a pretty penny, you get what you pay for. Price varies with color and specifications.

    going by memory, retail I think for the Enduro set is $859, which comes with DT Swiss 5.1 rims. The FR/DH set is a tad more I believe.

    Standard colors are silver, black, red.

    Custom colors (ie, other than silver, red, black) will be an upcharge. Single speed hubs I think are about $50 more. Maverick axle may cost a tad more too.

    You can even spec faded spokes which look totally sick (eg, fade to black either at hub or at rim)...extra coin for that too.

    cheers

    i bet they will. they are working on BMX stuff, road stuff, you name it. since they dont do their own rims, it is just a matter of different length spokes.

    DT swiss, i've heard some bad things about the rims but thats what the guys at I9 have been building most of them to and they say they'll hold up. These things are light I can't wait to get them on a bike.

    wow man that is really really good looking!! i wonder if you can get hope breaks in red? if so, it'd look sick on your bike, but the yellow/gold hope breaks wouldn't look bad either!

    These things are stiff and light as hell, I haven't gotten a chance to rail them on anything serious, as the Foes is getting put into a box and shipped to Keystone in a few minutes. What I did get a chance to ride on them felt great. The hub sounds better than my Hadley too, which is always a plus.

    I arrive Friday evening so Saturday is our first riding day. Look for this one with me, my buddy just got his wheels too, lucky for him, they get to go on an entirely new bike.

    That looks sweet! Lucky you. I gotta wait untill Janurary for mine, but thats also when I get my new bike. Your buddies ride looks really cool with the black and gold. Have fun at Keystone.

    Excellent!

    I've had mine for a few months now and they are extremely stiff and the performance is on par or better than a set of CK or Hadley's.
    Nothing to see here.

    To be placed on this bike:

    mine are coming in the mail. question: why do a couple of the spokes look really inconsistent? one looks like it is barely grabbing enough threads, another is buried all the way? i didn't notice similar patterns with the threads nearby?

    Sig answer - is it Nada Surf "Popular"? It seems like that's not right though. It's like HS something or another. Off to Google to check.

    edit - I totally owned that f'n game.

    Not sure, but I noticed that too. I believe the driveside and non driveside spokes are different, so that could have something to do with it.
