    I'm guessing that was probably your friends fault, not I9's. What happened exactly, I am curious. I know almost everyone that works there and ride with them occasionally since their business is just down the road from my house. I am sure if the problem was related to manufacturing issues they will take care of you. So, whats the story?

    don't have any personally, but a few guys at my lbs have them and love them

    the rear hub is fantastic - the engagement is almost instant

    they are also the best looking hubs i have seen

    i am considering a set for my remedy

    the guys i know have them on a nomad and a prophet

    they don't come cheap - but from my limited exposure, they sure seem to be worth it

    i may also be biased as i live in nc - where the company is located

    let us know if you take the plunge

    Sounds like your friend didn't properly adjust his spokes. All wheels need to be adjusted from time to time. Unless of course he over tightened them and stripped the threads on the hubs. Sounds like they failed on his account, not on Industrynine.

    I think he's refering to Garritt at Mt. Snow and if I'm not wrong it was 2-3 spokes and Tom V popped new ones in and the wheel was good to go immediately following.

    Believe me, if I could afford a set I'd have them. The neat thing about their spokes is that you don't have to take off the cassette or the rotor to replace a spoke. It's the fastest swap out known to man other than a spare wheel.

    no, this was jamie ford, i belive the spokes snapped , and the rim was taco'ed. I seriosly doubt he set up the wheels wrong. He rides rediculusly fast tho, he won pro at plattekill last weekend.

    Any pictures? I'd like to check that out.

    I've got a guy who KILLS rear hubs. He would split the shimano cassette bodies open like walnuts as soon as he went up something short and steep.

    Went with the DT/Swiss hubs after that and pretty good luck with those. But still once a year or so the hub shell splits and the ring-pawl spins inside the hubshell.

    So now, he's on an old Hope Big`Un hub I laced in for him and that's been going strong for a few years now...but always on the look out for something better/modern.
    Been curious about the I9 becuase they have said they've had zero failures...
    but everything breaks in due time.

    Just to complete this story. The hubs on dude's bike did not go boom, they are fine and we are re-using them. He ordered an Enduro wheelset (1840gr) for pro level DH riding. He just got the wrong wheels for the given application. We'll see how he does on his DH set.
    Thanks
