Easton EA 70 XC 29er wheelset?
I have an 2011 Anthem X3 29er and am looking at replacing the stock wheelset with these...any info or opinions? Nashbar currently has the wheelset reduced to $335 with possibly another 20% off, sounds like a great deal. Any body runnin the EA 70's?
oops, found a thread in the wheels & Tires forum...thanks anyways, will scavenge thru that for now, still will take any opinions not found there...
I bought the EA70 XC 29ers last November. I'm about 200 pounds and ride a Stumpjumper FSR 29er. They're light, but not strong enough for my bike and me and the type of riding I do. I'm just a trailrider, not a racer or downhiller. Maybe ok for a light hardtail and XC riding and a lighter rider. I asked the shop before buying them and was told "Yeah, they'll be fine..." and read some reviews saying the same--but that's not my experience. I think I'll sell them once I get them back from the shop. I have my stock wheels back on and they feel much better/stronger.
