New Wheel Set…


Easton AM Havoc Wheels

It’s finally time to replace my wheels on my Enduro. I bid adieu to the original Mavic x223’s. They get bad reviews now on the biking sites but I don’t think they were that bad for original equipment back in 2003 when I purchased my Enduro. They haven’t taco’d and have only occasionally broken a spoke. Maybe it’s my riding style because as one of our gang members says, my bike still looks brand new. Oh well. They have finally bit the big one and are in pieces on my cellar floor waiting for these new beauties to come in the mail today to replace them.

This is from the Easton site:

“The first wheel designed from the ground up for All Mountain riders. Light enough for the most demanding XC rider, yet strong enough for the rigors of DH. And its lateral stiffness is up to 39% greater than competing rims. Easton’s proprietary 28 mm rims accommodate the widest tires without the rollover inherent in competing 23 mm rims.”

These things will look beefy on my bike since the mav’s were only 23mm rims. Also they will be lighter at only 1875g per PAIR. Sweet. Here is a link to the review on MTBR.com

The gang’s coming over tonight to help with the installation, and then going riding at Leominster State Park. You gotta love these guys!! Thanks!!!! I’ll let you know how the wheels work out tomorrow. I can’t wait!

Later,
