    Anybody here use the sub <1200g EC90 SLX tubular wheelsets?

    Any experiences with them? Do they stay true. I'm 175 lbs at 6-2

    They are awesome wheels.

    The braking is better than just about everything when used with SwissStop Yellows.

    At the prices you can find them for on Ebay, they are damn near disposable.

    Hell, $1000 wheelsets *are* trash. I wouldn't even true them.
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    They are the least expensive "good" carbon wheel.

    I'd like to train on them.

    They aren't bad price for what you're getting 1190g at $700-$1000 on Ebay!

    I ride the EC90 Aeros. Not quite the same (56mm rim), but the hubs are. Hubs are awesome quality. Bearings are super smooth. Can easily set pre-load by hand

    FYI: They are good solid wheels, but don't believe their claimed weight. They're every bit of 1250 grams.. a bit more sometimes. Still good wheels for the price though.
    Get on a cross bike.... you'll like it ;)

    Are these decent climbing wheels as well? I think they are around 1390g?

    These things can be had for under $800 now. Seems like a good choice for a lightweight wheelset. Thoughts?

    I like mine (ea 90slx). Great hubs, light..think they were 100g over stated weight. I'd ride them every day but I'm such a puss and afraid to get a flat.
