Easton EC70 sl Wheelset love (or hate)?
[Sorry about a double post...no replies since I first posted this morning in Road Cycling, so, I'll see if I might get some helpful replies here
I'm seriously looking to buy a set of semi-aero clincher wheels for crits and the occasional road race -- 38s seem like they would be right for me; and it would be nice if I could use them for training too. (I currently have Ksyrium SL, which came with my System Six, and they seem fine to me, but, so many people have been telling me that I would be much much happier with something at least semi-aero.)
I've seen a fair bit of discussion about Williams 38
($999 list, 1596g, etc.) and lots of good things said there. In addition, I've seen lots of good things said about Soul 4.0s
($425 shipped, 1680g). I can get the Easton EC70 sl
new for about $750 (yes, it is a deal for them. list is $1250 or so I believe) and their reported weight is 1695g. I have not seen much on BF or elsewhere about the EC70 sl, although, what I have read tends to be very positive.
Any folks with experience using the EC70 sl? Any thoughts or guidance? Thank you!
