Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
@Joeshreds: The example is useful in that it proves the only point I was arguing, which is that the I-9 spoke is stiffer. But thanks for adding a bunch of misinformed opinion to the debate, then debunking your own argument about spokes failing from fatigue. Of course steel has a better fatigue life, but that's still irrelevant to the conversation and I never argued that to begin with.

Hahaha,ok guy! Please tell me what basic engineering calculations you’re referring to. Outside diameter is an enormous factor in making a cylinder stiffer. You’re basically arguing that a quick release skewer is stiffer than a through axle. You can do a super simple test using any steel spoke next to an I9. Use the edge of a table and hang the same amount of weight off of each and see which one deflects more. No one said anything about fatigue life, but I know people ten years in on wheel sets with same spokes still on them. All spokes on bicycle wheels get broken from outside forces, no one rides anything to point of breaking from fatigue. You also seem to be failing to grasp that as a system the 1 piece aluminum spoke design makes for a much stiffer wheel than any j-bend ever could. The j itself is a stress rise and weak point on the spoke. It also moves where it’s hooked into the hub shell when under load. The threads cut into a steel spoke become the thinnest and weakest point on the spoke. An I9 spoke tapers so its at it’s thickest where the threads are cut. A spoke nipple also allows for movement under load. So, the 1 peice aluminum spoke eliminates 2 weak spots on the spoke itself and also eliminates 2 flex points, one at the hub and one at the rim. Even if the spoke itself wasn’t stiffer, which it most certainly is, the 1 peice straight spoke threaded directly to the hub is inherently a stiffer, stronger wheel. @JohanG:

Wrong, the tensile strength is equal to or greater than most steel spokes. They are also waaay stiffer because of the diameter and material. They deflect so little using a tensiometer that at equal tension they read way higher than a steel spoke.@JohanG:

@vggg: Could have just as easily happened with a steel spoke. I’ve seen plenty of broken steel spokes the same type of accident. I’ve been riding I9’s exclusively for over a decade now and every wheel I’ve had has ended up with spokes dented, bent, gouged, etc. and the wheels stay true af. The few breaks I’ve had on the trail didn’t have enough effect on the wheel to keep me from riding out of the woods.

Most every time you have to replace a J-bend spoke it also means replacing the nipple. Which means having to go through the exact same process you just described. Only with I-9’s you simply drop the spoke through the rim, start threading it in and then bring it back up to tension. Which is like 100 times easier then threading a j-bend spoke back through the hub shell, (which on the drive side will require you to pull the cassette) and then interlacing it through the right spoke and then attaching the nipple.
