Thanks for the replies
Admittedly I've only done a few hundred Km's on the Eastons as yet but found them stiff enough, I think they're better than my Reynold Attack 32mm Carbon Clinchers
I'm more of an older 'tempo' rider than a sprinting animal
and tend to ride fairly good roads
My LBS, who I do have some trust in, said that Easton have fixed the issues in the 2011/2012 wheelsets, time will tell
Yes had also heard various things about AC hubs, hence my question.
I've been told that they don't have bearing seals and therefore the hubs do eventually die
My LBS does have 6 of these wheelsets and they do weigh around the 1180 gms +/- 2-3gms
My LBS owner does have a pair of custom wheels using the AC magnesium rims with Tune hubs (not sure which ones) and Union Ti spokes, I think they're less than 1100 gms but the rims get thrown away every 12 months as they can no longer be trued, and he's barely 65kg !
