Exciting news! We've furthered our relationship with Industry Nine and now offer their J-bend hubs at both our GLOBAL and NORTH AMERICAN locations. We're excited to offer premium hand-built Industry Nine LB wheelsets shipped anywhere in the world.
In the past, Industry Nine hubs were limited to our North American warehouse. However, we’ve seen increased demand for these hubs, lovingly made in North Carolina, USA. Now you can order LB wheelsets built with either Torch (Road), Hydra (MTB/Fat), or 1/1 (MTN) hubs of any axle size and anodized color on offer. At our Global warehouse, we’ve kept the most popular axle sizes and colors in stock but feel free to contact us or let us know in the checkout notes if you want a special order.

TORCH ROAD HUBS
The Torch road hubs have solid reliable engagement that can handle a high torque output. Each pawl has 2 notches on it so you get 6 points of contact when you stomp on the pedals! They come in a wide array of options, different hole counts, brake styles and various spacing options to match your ride. The hubs have a refined but relatively simple design which makes them easy to service.
-- 60 points of engagement
-- 3 pawls with 2 teeth each

The Torch hubs have a dazzling array of colors to choose from. At our Global warehouse, we list and inventory Black, Turquoise, Red, and Orange but can get any of their colors. If you want another color you can let us know in the checkout notes, or e-mail us (sales@lightbicycle) for a lead-time estimate.
The retail cost for an I9 Torch hubset is $575 USD.
