Industry nine I9 9 hub tools (1)

If you follow Industry Nine on Instagram, you may have caught this photo of a fairly odd looking hub – only the shot isn’t about the hub at all. What looks like an extra long, gold freehub body and an odd bit of purple ano below are actually tools. Part of their new hub bearing service kit to be exact.

Designed to make freehub service and bearing replacement as easy as possible, the new kit includes all the needed tools to keep your I9 hubs rolling. Press more for details…

Offered in a 5 piece set, the bearing drifts are designed to work with any common bearing press kit. So while you will need another tool for the I9 kit to work, retail price for the Bearing Service Kit is only $60. Each piece is anodized in a different color for easy identification, and also has the bearing number and intended hub name laser etched on the back. In addition to the bearing press tools, the kit includes a rear Driveside endcap extractor tool.

No more hunting down 2 15/16″ sockets around the house!

Anodized aluminum for tools? Why wouldn’t you use something a bit more robust?

@xcracer,
not when youre just pressing in bearings. steel for bearing removal tools, especially for stubborn loctited or corroded ones…

Don’t need a bearing press tool. Just use a vice like I9 did in the picture.

@Ripnshread – that’s an arbor press, not a vice. They’re great for bearing install & removal, but you’d never get an entire wheel into one.

– I guess so. I’d just imagine the anodizing cracking & flaking after a few uses and the tool looking mangled pretty quickly. I’ve always used steel sockets for pressing in bearings, and haven’t once had an issue because my the socket was too hard.

@xcracer,
i doubt steel being “too hard” would be an issue, but the cost of materials and cost of machining tool steel might be. i dont see the ano cracking and flaking being an issue. Enduro and WheelsMfg bearing presses use anodized aluminum adapters, i’ve used both extensively (i prefer the WheelsMfg), no chips or flakes, even on a part that was abused.
also im sure it was convenient for I9 as well, having CNC machines and lots of aluminum around. the only steel that comes to mind is the ratchet and pawls, and i believe those are cut with wire EDM.
