Robots, golf clubs, medical equipment, and now bicycle components? Industry Nine is a company from North Carolina, whose bike-geek engineers are attempting to reinvent the bicycle wheel. By integrating the spoke and nipple and building it out of aluminum they claim that their wheels have a lower rotational mass, thereby increasing acceleration = they make you climb like a billy goat. Plus, their freehub has a patent-pending 6 pawl system which makes for near instantaneous (3 degree) engagement. Industry Nine has a wheel for all your bikes, be it mountain, DH, 29er, or road, and all your tastes; they take custom orders. Check out their cool flash site.
