    2013 EC90 XC wheels?

    Hi,

    After reading about all the issues with the Easton hub in the past, I was wondering if how many folks are on the new hub/bearings?

    Have they addressed the issues? Can I can the EC90's to my short list of carbon wheels, or is Enve really the safe bet?

    Thanks!

    I have been riding the Easton EC90 XC Carbon 29" for a couple seasons on my Niner A9C SS. I did upgrade the hubs at the beginning of this season. Never had any trouble pre or post upgrade.

    Soft freehubs plague Easton's wheels. Pawls dig into the assembly and fail hard. A known issue, freehubs are getting hard to come by...
