    Wheelset decision

    Looking for a light weight DJ/urban wheelset, torn between two

    Industry 9 FR/DH wheelset DT FR6.1 rims w/ 150mm spacing @2150g

    or...

    Chris King 150mm ISO hubs on mavic 819's @ ~1850g



    I trust the kings more in terms of reliability, and the king sounds way better than I9s. I'm thinking the I9's will be a little stronger, but I already have a "strong" (heavy) wheelset for the rough stuff. Ideas/input please!

    If you can afford a set of I9's (which I have no doubt you can...given how decked out your Intense is...) for URBAN/DJ use and need to ask for confirmation on the Internet, then you should be doing something else...



    Boy oh boy, the groms are gonna be jealoussssss!!!

    Get the I9s son.

    I vote Hadley hubs as will a couple dozen other people here... For Dj or urban, the 819's are a little weak, go with 823's.

    What kind of dirt jump/urban bike is this going on? Sounds like a DH or Freeride bike with 150mm rear spacing... Is this a 6.6 SS?

    At my age I define a grom as anyone born when I was in high school.

    Yeah, for the SS. I dont want to bother with the 135mm dropouts when I already have the 150s, especially with some people talking about flexy rear triangles from Intense. I'm usually not that rough on my wheelsets, so I can get away with some light fr/ am stuff. I have the spinergy fall lines for rough stuff. These are for the light build. I love king hubs, and I have almost no experience with I-9s. I-9s seem excessively loud, which really sucks. Are their hubs really that great, or is all the fanfare over the aluminum spokes?

    I haven't looked into hadley much, I'll check it out.

    Cool. You'll have less dish on the rear wheel with that set-up anyway.

    I have only seen one set of I-9's on a bros XC bike and I'll say this: the engagement was QUICK! It felt like a one-way bearing, but with clicking. Light too. I didn't ride it or anything, but he said he could notice the light weight as compared to a regular spoke/nipple set up. He did say he broke a spoke, but it was easy to replace. I think the hubs for traditional spoke wheels would be cool to try, but I'm so happy with the Hadleys I've owned, I don't see the need to get a different brand.

    Plus, I'm west coast , I-9 = east coast.
