I recently purchased a set of Easton EA70 XC 29er wheels.
They are nice, true and the tension is great but the very first ride came back with a concern.
I've put about 70miles on the wheels now and the problem is intermittent and happens every few miles. Basically, when I coast and then continue to pedal, sometimes there is a loud crackle from the rear wheel, with also the cranks skipping a bit. It only happens under fairly light load. I'm suspecting that it's the freehub not engaging right away and skipping some teeth before it engages but can't tell you that this is it for sure.
the wheels have Easton's X2 hubs.
Is this something to worry about? I don't want to get stuck in the woods when the hub explodes but my warranty options seem to be limited as the wheels were purchased online from what appears not to be one of the official Easton's dealers.
