    easton EC90 XC 26" Wheel set for light touring?

    I'm aware that this is racing wheel. However, I plan to do light touring at payload of <190lbs, rider inclusive. All riding will be on paved road. What do you think?

    If you're comfortable with them then should ne OK. Don't think you'll find spokes easily on the road so you might want to bring a few spares taped to the chainstay.

    If you already have them, then sure. If you are buying the wheels for the tour/general riding you could find much more suitable wheels that are still reasonably light.
