Does anyone have any experience with these? Fast engagement, pretty good weight, made in 'murica, fair price and according to their own words low drag.

A local wheel builder has been using these for his own "high-end" wheels but i've never heard of these before. can't find any reviews on them either.

I'm building a set of mountain Classics today. Their quality is excellent and I would highly recommend their hubs.

Thanks, they seemed like good choice if you want a more modern looking hub than White Industries and don't have Chris King money.

Are they particularly noisy? (3 pawls digging into 60 teeth) and how 'low drag' are they? do you have any hands on experience with the road version?

It's hard to tell how loud they are but they are not silent according to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tIG5t5zak4


My wife said she wants the gold ones if they're loud. Anyone have a comparison?

I saw that video, but in the last frame i think i see disc mounts which would indicate they're the classic mtb hubs.

Loud is fine, as long as they're not BMX hub loud.

If you pedal then there is no noise. I've used both hubs. Choosing between Chris King and I Nine hubs is like splitting hairs since both are excellent. The instant engagement of both is very noticeable but only play an important in the mountain bike work verses road. It makes a huge difference on a single speed mtg when trying to start riding on a steep climb.

I have been using these on a lot of builds in recent months and they have taken the place of the King R45 as the go to hub for custom builds

The shape of the front hub is really nice, flanges are pretty far apart for a good stiff front wheel. Rear has high flanges and they build with a pretty even DR/ND spoke tension.

Bearings seem really good quality, hubs are easy to work on and don't require special tools.

Colors are great in the sun, ano work is top notch.

The freehub is very loud. For those who don't like that we grease the pawls and leave some excess grease in the cavity which seems to muffle it quite a bit into a low buzz.

All in for me 10/10

Since there are now video's online of the i9 hubs, can you compare the sound of them to another hub?

Still debating between the T11 and i9, the t11 have a Ti hub body so they won't look like this after using them for a while. Plus they roll super smooth.

I like the look of the i9 more, but if they're really really loud it'll probably annoy me real soon.
