Have you used the Easton R90 SL rim in your builds? How is the rim compared to for example HED belgium C2 or Belgium plus?

The rim profile is almost the same as HED belgium plus: outer/inner width 24/20 mm, height 27mm. Weight is also good, 455g.

The only issue is that the 20H rim seems to be no longer available.

I have. They look to be made in the same factory as the Hed rims. Very high quality. It splits the difference between the two Hed offerings quite nicely.

That is great news., thank you.

What tyres are you using with them? A 25mm tyre is quite wide when installed to Eastons, I believe.

I built them for customers, but not for myself. Usually you can size down the tire (ie. 23mm tire measures 25mm). I have used all different tire widths with the wide rims I use.

How was the ERD: did it match the Easton spec 580?

Yes, I know I should order the spokes only when I have the rim and have checked the dimensions, but it is not very convenient to order every part separately. :oops:

Great, thanks.

The rim is now waiting for me to pick it up from LBS. The hub (powertap GS) is ordered (from US), hopefully the shop is able to deliver it as planned. I will get the spokes (DT Swiss aero comp, Sapim Cx Ray) once I receive confirmation for the hub.

Once I have the wheel ready & tested, I will post my comments. And also start over with the front wheel.
