Out of interest, what setup did you have on it before? Was it straight from FFW to the I9, or did you go to a Hope or something first?

Bike looks sweet, incidentally! 

I was front freewheel for a month or so, but every other main bike I’ve had has been on a King.

Thanks man !

Ah fair enough, was curious as to how big a change it would have felt from a FFW setup. More in terms of weight positioning as much as anything, although with how light that hub is I suppose it's getting closer and closer to being fairly negligible between a FFW setup and a freehub. Especially so when you factor in just how good that I9 engagement feels!

Out of interest, what fittings do you have to use with those T-pieces? Something that's proprietary to them? Look really neat and tidy!

To be honest I never really notice much difference, whatever you lose in weight centralization I feel you make back in less friction and a freer drivetrain. The engagement is mad, just makes everything else even a 135 freewheel just feel sloppy.

Nothing at all, the pneumatic tees are just push fit.

Agreed about the I9 hubs - love mine on my Arcade. Good point about the drivetrain resistance too, always forget how draggy FFW setups usually are.
