    Easton EA 70 XC thoughts on these ?

    I wonder if these decent and if the are enough wheel for my weight (200lbs)?
    I couldn't seem to find any specs on rider weight.
    Just mild riding with nothin to radical, guess they call it XC these days.

    I have a set on my 29er SS hardtail and love them. They seem to stay true. I weigh 240 and have had no problems with them. I really liked the price and I'm thinking of getting another set for a 29er hardtail gearded bike I'm building now

    I have no direct experience with these wheels, but being a "set it & fogret it" kind of guy, I don't see the point in using anything other than stan's wheels since they're afforadable, reliable, light & most improtantly hassle free to run tubeless.

    Easton's are under $300 where Stan's are around $500, depends what he wants to spend.
    I ran tubeless once, ripped a front sidewall outta my front tire and coated a set of Code brakes and Reba fork in slime, lucky I was close to some cleaner to get it off before it set up.

    This is good to hear as far as rider weight goes.
    Best I found em for is 425. and that helps me along with gettin brakes for the build.
    I would like to get a custom set built but it's for my 1st full susp. bike and who knows if i'll even like it or not
    I'm open to any ideas, like the Stan's which seem to enjoy a great rep. for quality etc.
    I think i wll end up gettin a mid range wheelset and brakes rather than just the high end custom wheels.
    That being said i'm trying to keep it under a grand for wheels and brakes

    Thanks for any and all help
