    Nox vs Industry 9 Alloy

    Let me start of by saying I dont know a ton about wheels. I'd like something stiffer and faster engagement than the wheels that came on my Yeti. I want Industry 9 hubs either way, I am somewhat local to them and I had them on my last bike. Right now I am trying to decide between the Nox (Farlow front/Teo rear?) with the non-straightpull I9 hubs, or the straight pull I9 hubs with their alloy wheels (probably enduro 305). I'm 175 lbs and ride mostly Charlotte trails and WNC including Pisgah. Can someone with a little more knowledge compare the ride feel of these two set ups?

    Nox are going to feel way less harsh.

    I would recommend the nox set up. That's a exact set up I considered for one of my Yetis...

    I9 hubs on DT Swiss rims. They're $150 a set. Hard to believe the I9 rims are an upgrade.
