I9 Single Speed Race wheelset, Stans rims, Lefty front $350/BO
Industry 9/Stans singlespeed 29er race wheelset, Lefty front I9 hub. $350/BO. Rider weight limit of 165lbs!
I9 hubs (lefty front) and spokes
Stans 355 up front, Arch in back
I recently bought a niner one9 with this wheelset on it. The wheelset is phenomenal. Light, stiff, super quick engagement, and the hubs just roll and roll - get up to speed and coast past people (really!). Having had all kinds of wheels on all kinds of bikes, this is easily the fastest wheelset I've ever used and the first wheelset that made me realize why people pay over a grand just for a wheelset. Totally worth it.
However...I weigh 180lbs and the rider weight limit of these wheels is 165lbs - a fact I learned after the front wheel went out of true. My mechanic has trued and tuned both wheels to I9 specs. I love these wheels, but I can't afford to have them break down during a race.
Best I can value it, this wheelset would cost around $1300 new. As it's used (2 years), I'm looking to get $350 or best offer.
If you're significantly over the weight limit, I'd recommend you move on. But if you're under/at the weight limit, these wheels will amaze you.
I'm on Cape Cod if you're local (or on vacation) and want to see the set in person.
