More disc wheel stuff.

Any body ride these? Feedback? I know the hubs are highly regarded but what about the build? The rear is 24 hole 2/1 lacing with CX-Ray. Weight limit is 220 lbs. Front is 24-hole, 4 cross Non-drive side lacing, Radial lacing on Drive side.

Curious about durability and ride quality. The thing I love about the handbuilts I have is that the ride is so damn smooth compared to a lot of factory builds.

In my experience the build quality coming out of Industry Nine is pretty decent for their steel-spoke models.

Bumping my own thread. Shame not to see more comments. A 1500 gram wide alloy disc clincher. Looks to have the potential to be a real winner.

But...this wheelset takes a very bold approach in the lacing of the rear wheel - 8 spokes radial beside the disc (16 @ 4 cross drive side). There are many comments from very knowlegeable people in this very forum that say this is a serious no-no that will only lead to problems.

I get the technical rationale behind the design but it would be nice to hear about any long term use from actual owners. Do they stay true? spoke breakage? A real shortage of data on this product.

Generally speaking, that lacing pattern doesn't cause issues; the hub shell is resistant enough to twisting to allow the drive-side spokes to take up all the braking force. Trying to do this lacing pattern on a regular hub which isn't necessarily designed for this sort of thing could be a recipe for disaster, but when you've got something designed to work that way, it's quite doable.

I'm mostly curious to see how they get the spokes in through the hub shell in the first place, with the flange moved so far in. Looks to be oval holes?

Yes, it looks as though the spoke head will go through and then hook onto some internal notch. BUT what about water ingress when you hose these things down? I guess the water comes out the same way. :noidea: Bearing well protected I assume.
