Easton Havoc DH Wheels Review Easton Havoc DH Wheels Review
28 spokes of strength.

"World Class DH wheels have to be bombproof, but nobody said they have to feel sluggish and unresponsive." Easton's mindset on the aggressive wheel market makes sense. Why not engineer something that is strong, light, responsive, and not garbage? With that, Easton took it into their own hands, and came up with the Havoc DH wheels. 28 spokes of excitement make these wheels light, while some very smart technologies make them strong.

All Mountain Wheeling – The DT Swiss Enduro EX 1750 All Mountain Wheeling – The DT Swiss Enduro EX 1750
Out on the trail there are a few key elements that are a must for a good all mountain wheel set. Namely, as riders pushing our bikes to the limit in a variety of terrain, we want wheels that are durable, relatively stiff and light. They need to be able to take a beating while also spinning smoothly and efficiently. As all mountain wheels, the DT Swiss Enduro EX 1750 meets these criteria well, and with their white base and black and red decals, they look darn hot too.

It's good to be King-King Earl that is! It's good to be King-King Earl that is!
The name Bontrager has been around for a long time and to many it goes hand in hand with Hand Built Bikes and high end components. While Bontrager no longer produces his great hand built hard tails for the general public, the component line lives on. Bontrager components are found on all Trek, Klein and Gary Fisher bikes. Over the past few years the sub catagory "Big Earl" has really come into its own as a freeirde brand to look at for quality, reliable after market parts. I've been riding my 2006 Rocky Switch 2.0 for months now, but leaving anything stock for too long makes Tyler a dull boy........
