Comments about Easton EA90 XC 29" MTN Wheel 2013:
Got these to pair with a Trek Cobia for XC usage. Got stationed in Korea where the whole country is basically a mountain. Upgraded to a Niner RIP9 but kept these wheels. Not only have they stood up to the all-mountain riding I do now, they have excelled. Paired with Hans Dampf tires running tubeless they take two-foot drops with ease. Have never needed to true them in over a year... still true within less than 1mm.
Not perfect though... two issues:
First: Rear hub bearings die pretty quick. Easton has remedied this with a free bearing upgrade kit if yours were made in 2012. Since then they've run perfect.
Second: They're advertised to run 2.35" tires, despite the 19mm inner width. Paired with 2.35" Hans Dampf tires (which may be closer to 2.4-2.45" they tend to have some wobble. Tried reseating and a second set from Schwalbe but no fix. Dropped to some 2.2" to test, and they run true. Something to keep in mind if you run larger tires.
