    MTB Wheels: light, strong.

    Can anyone refer me to light, strong 26" MTB wheels? Price not too much of an object, up to $1000 for a set. They have to be disc brake compatible too.

    Hot looking wheels, light, very trick. How durable? Mavics are less sexy, somewhat heavier, utterly bulletproof. Anyone have real world experience with the Industry Nine wheels?

    Thanks for the input, very interested. Never heard of them either. I'm a total road weenie. Planning on bolting these onto that BD Motobecane Fly Ti hardtail, which comes with 1800 gram wheels. A 1400-1500 gram wheelset would result in a 19-19.5 lb. Ti hardtail. That would ROCK.

    well, i have real world experience with them. however, i'd be lying if i told you i've "put them to the test". there are a few people on here with them that are able to do more serious mtb'ing and will attest to their durability when they see this thread.

    i am positive you would not be disappointed. they are pretty much one of the premier wheels out there.

    Sorry, no experience on the INs. However, I've run a set of Mavic Crossmax SLs on my blur since 2003. Trust me, these really are bulletproof, and they roll very well. Again, no experience with the INs, but I'd like to!!!

    A friend just built me a set of wheels with CK Classic hubs, Mavic XC717 Ceramics and DT Competition DB spokes. I expect these wheels to last a long time. I was thinking about I 9's, but don't know if they will be around in a few years when I need parts. So I went with the Kings.

    That BD Fly Ti hardtail is the perfect MTB for me. Simple, light, also perfect for winter roadie training in the snow/slop. EBay off those wheels it comes with, add those Inudstry Nine wheels, and you have a 19.5.lb Ti hardtail with the scwhagest components for $2600 or so (I figure the wheels it comes with bring $200 or so on eBay).

    yes, but what do cyclists do who want to use a powermeter? this seems like it really, really limits choices out there. i am trying to decide what i will do for my guru geneo build.

    Patentcad, for your purposes I would have to recommend the Ambrosio tubular mtb wheels with Dugast (or maybe Tufo) 26" mtb tubulars. The Reynolds carbon tubular mtb wheels would also be acceptable.




    For those of you who do not know Pcad from the road forum, be quiet before you embarrass yourself.

    sorry, off topic. i meant i see all these nice wheel set-ups but using a power meter seems to mess things up. you can't really use special spokes or rims as far as i know...right? just standard j-bend spokes.

    Most of the best wheels in the world use J-bend spokes. I9's straight pull are not the mother of all spokes.

    The last two (only two) spokes I've broken have broken in the middle of the spoke due to contact with a stump and a rider. A properly build wheel with j-bends is just as strong as with straight pull spokes. Plus, you can actually get the proper spoke almost anywhere.

    I am very intrigued by the I9's. Straight pull is not new. But threads at the hub are, as well as the idea of aluminum spokes. Aluminum spokes, not in my wildest dreams!

    yeah, but i am talking about all the specialty wheels available for road. for instance, i was considering campy shamal (i believe) but i would only be able to use a front if i use the cycle-ops hub. just kind of stinks.

    You can build up a nice set of carbon rims with a powertap no problem. Most people just buy them to train on though, so it makes little difference. For me, having the rather ugly 28 spoke/open pro combo with my powertap are worth the data it provides...

    If you're going to be using these exclusively on the road, much of the advantages of the I9 hubs will be "wasted."
    Thanks for the feedback. While I'll admit my new MTB will see lots of road service, I do want to get out into the woods more, I have a 3000+ acre state park 5 miles from here with nobody in it. It's friggin MTB theme park.

    I will seriously consider those I-9 wheels. Hell, not giving Mavic more $ makes them worth a try.

    That's better than Pcad being "wasted".

    Longer than you've been alive, young man.

    You are correct, I forgot about Cronos. Not available for MTB anymore, as far as I can see on the Cane Creek Website.

    Their still selling them, they might be backstock but they are selling them with that type of hub. There was a pair of 2007 Cane Creeks at the shop today with the threads at the hub.
