    Easton wheelset on 2013 Big Kahuna
    The 2013 Big Kahuna complete bike has a wheelset listed as "Easton XC 29er" and I'm not sure what that means. Are they like EA70s? Are the rim profiles tubeless compatible? Just wondering if anybody can help clear this up.

    Thanks.

    Not sure if this helps, but i have the same wheelset on my 2012 HeiHei DL. I have them set up tubeless "ghetto style" and they work well. They are fairly stiff and relatively light. I did have a problem with the rear wheel. After about 200 miles the rear axle broke. Easton took care of it for free, but it took forever. I have about 200-300 miles on the replacement with no issues so far.
