Review: Industry 9 Trail 270 Wheels
So you're saying you bought a used pair and are too stupid or lazy to replace the O-ring that holds that assembly together?

Review: Industry 9 Trail 270 Wheels
@ReformedRoadie: Yes, it is a lot better. There are no J-bend wheels that perform like I-9 system wheels. The 1 piece spoke design makes a much stronger chassis. The lateral stiffness created by this makes for super crisp and precise steering input and tracks amazingly though rough terrain. Racers get sponsored by big high budget companies, not little guys like I-9.

@stella10: Correct! Because like I-9 he exists in Trump’s America!

@spaceofades: Considering every hub has different flange dimensions and every rim has a different erd, all spokes are basically proprietary. Lots of shops don’t have a spoke cutter and the likelihood of walking into a random shop and finding the length you need is pretty slim. I9 provides a few spares with every wheel set, so if you break one riding locally (which I assume is where most people ride) it’s a non issue. If your traveling to ride you should be carrying spares anyway, because again shops don’t stock 4000 different lengths of j-bends. I’ve been riding I9’s exclusively for over a decade now, I’ve never once been stranded by them. 1 because the spokes are so strong they don’t break often and 2 they build to such a strong wheel you have to loose 3 or 4 spokes next to each other for the wheel to go out of true. By all means though, keep stuffing things up your ass, it’ll make it harder for you talk out of it.

@RedRedRe: They make the best bicycle wheels on the planet. Their one piece alloy spoke is revolution in wheel design. Not only does it eliminate the flex / weak point of the J-bend, it also eliminates the spoke nipple, which is basically just rotational weight that adds another flex point. Not to mention where the threads are cut into a steel spoke is generally the thinnest part of the spoke and where it's most likely to fail. The I-9 one piece spoke is the thickest where the threads start. Other companies have finally caught up in terms of hub engagement (3 degrees) but the true beauty and engineering marvel of their wheels is the 1 piece spoke. They are also extremely easy to lace and build. I wouldn't touch a j-bend wheel with a ten foot pole at this point. Oh, and yes they design and make everything in house except for the enduro cartridge bearings in the hubs and the actual rims.

Review: Devinci Troy Carbon 29
Yeah, why would anyone want stronger wheels, more tire clearance and a better chain line for 1X setups...

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
I won't build a bike without a bash guard. I've detonated a couple of them too and my chain ring would have definitely been destroyed without it.
