    Easton Havoc AM Wheelset

    It's pouring here, and in my aimless surfing around, I noticed that Price Point has these wheels at a good price of $450.

    I'm a handbuilt guys, but I seem to recall that a few of Team Sanchez were having good luck with these hoops.

    No Sanchez riders, but some of the guys from the LBS have been using them for months, and they are holding up very well. I've got Easton Wheels on my Road bike, and their hubs are top notch.

    that's a great price

    but mine developed a lot of play in the bearings really quick
    I've been inside too long.

    I was considering these wheels as well, but ultimately decided against getting them, as a decent, budget, handbuilt set of wheels (though heavier) can be had for ~$300.

    I got some feedback on the Eastons (and Mavic Xmax XL's, which are on closeout for the same price at some places) here if you're interested.

    I have a pair

    On my 6pack....very reliable! Ive done 10ft to tranny with no problems. Cased two landings on a road gap landing slightly sideways--no carnage, straight as an arrow.. Also I'm running them with stans and the new chunder 2.3-folding tire which blows away any AM tire out there. The grip is insane. 900g
