    Wow, prices have come down on these. Too bad the hubs are not great, poor reliability.

    Pretty sure they sorted out the Hubs for 2013 and people were even getting their 2012 Hubs replaced for free.

    Yeah, I have the Haven aluminum wheels and just installed their free rear axle upgrade kit which supposedly comes standard on all new Havens now. Corrects the bearing preload issues that was shortening the life on the hub bearings. Great customer service and warranty department. I had a couple bearings go out on me in the past and they sent me free bearings, as well as some extra QR end-caps when I misplaced mine.

    Too bad this wheelset is not 20mm or I would probably be all over this deal too.

    Looks like chainlove had a deal on these last night. I got a notification but didn't see how much it was or which hubs they had. Did anyone else see it? Hoping to get a deal on 20mm/10mm in the next few months.

    Only problem is apparently they have to be purchased from an authorized easton dealer to get the rear hub swapped out for free. You can still get it swapped but it will be $200.00 or so.

    To get my rear hub axle and bearing upgrade kit I only needed to call and give them the model number of my hub. No questions asked or proof of purchase. Nevertheless Chainlove/Backcountry/Competitive Cyclist is an authorized dealer so don't let that stop you if you're seriously considering them.

    I'm talking about swapping out the WHOLE HUB not just the bearings.
    The wheel sets being blown out are m1-120 hubs that cant be upgraded. None the less, if they are in fact an authorized reseller that is great news

    But, It looks like that was for ONE "wheel". Either front OR rear:

    Well that's nothing special then I guess. Looks like other than CO cyclist Jenson has the best deal at $490 a piece right now.

    About $800 right now at Jenson for the 2012 model using code eastoncloseouts. Code should be good for other 2011-13 Easton products also.

    Tempted. But there's no 12x142 rear option for these sale wheels. Good thing though else Id have bought something I don't really need.

    My plan is to run the qr on my current frame and then hopefully get covered under warranty changing over to the 121 rear hub that is 12mm compatible.

    They'll do that? It requires a whole new hub?

    From what I've read here I believe so. The 10mm qr that Jenson has should be the m1-120 hub that some people have seemed to have problems with. The 2 year warranty should be able to cover changing it to the 121 hub, which is convertible to 10 and 12mm.

    Ah but will they replace it before a failure? If not it sounds like a crapshoot. I don't have a compatible frame for 135 so I'm out but I see what you mean for longterm plans

    Well, if you really want 142x12 out of the box, and want a name brand carbon wheelset, you can just get the SRAM Rise 60 wheelset F/R for $900 at JensonUSA. 19mm internal width, not UST, and doesn't have the advanced impact resistant resin that Easton uses, but it's an option that's light with top of the line spokes (Sapim CX Ray). That's a sale price, but it's not tagged properly; its MSRP is 2000.

    Thanks for that code! Still a lot of money, but a great deal.

    I bought a set of the 29" wheels and they came with the M1-121 rear hub. Had the green sticker on the outside of the box that indicates the bearing pre-load fix has already been applied, but I did not take it apart to check.

    Really? M1 hub? The ad says doesn't take 12x142 axle which the M1 does. Confused

    The M1-121 hub on my wheel is set up for 10x135QR, but according to documents on the Easton website it can be converted to 12x142 by obtaining the proper axle and end cap parts from Easton:

    This thread also has a good chart showing which conversions are possible:

    Can Easton Haven 12 x 135/142 be converted to 10 x 135?
