I was able to pick up a brand new set of 2012 Easton Haven 29er wheels for an amazing price of $433 shipped. Chain Reaction had them on sale last week, I ordered on Weds and they are here today. Free shipping. Seems to be a rock solid deal. The wheels look sweet and I've heard they ride great. Going to put them on a new Banshee Paradox.

I am thinking of putting an Maxxis Ardent 2.4 up front and a 2.2 on the back. I primarily ride rocky, rooty, bumpy New England trails.

Other thoughts were Continental Trail King 2.4 and 2.2 on the back.

Looking forward to getting this thing all built up, been a slow process so far.
