Easton Haven Front 29 inch Wheel
Haven wheels can look great on anything from an XC hardtail to a Freeride park bike, but the best match for these popular wheels is the mid-travel trail bike. And the best wheel diameter for those bikes is 27.5. In other words, this is the hot trail ride/Enduro/All Mountain wheelset. Featuring an internal rim width of 21-millimeters, the Haven wheel is wide enough for 2.5-inch tires but still exceptionally light at just 1,720 grams. We built these wheels to last, no matter how hard or reckless you ride. Other highlights include out-of-the-box UST tubeless compatibility (no need to fuss with special rim strips or sealants), top-of-the-line Sapim double-butted spokes and sealed cartridge bearings. Like all high-end Easton wheels, the Haven is built by hand using Eastons proprietary acoustic tensioning and truing method.

My latest cycling wheels
Easton Cycling began in 1984, and are principally known for producing ranges of performance finishing kit, such as chainsets, handlebars, stems, seatposts and wheels for Road Cycling and Mountain Biking. The original Easton company started life back in 1922, creating a range of bow and arrows! They diversified into skiing in 1964, and cycling approximately two decades later. Not every range has succeeded however, with their 1986 bike range not translating into sales, and consequently being abandoned 4 years later in 1990. The majority of their more affordable cycling components are produced from alloy, with their more expensive offerings sculpted from lightweight carbon fibre. Their impressive results back up these products, with professional victories in the Tour De France and DH World Championships.

I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles. A few years later this evolved into Bikes @ Butlers to highlight their intentions to move the business online with the .com boom and subsequent rise in online sales. At the end of May in 1999 Wiggle.co.uk was launched by Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. A rapid growth resulted in a need to move premises, and so in 2002 it relocated to Jackson Close, Portsmouth. This strong growth continued, and Wiggle has relocated twice since, the first being to Lakeside 1000, and then leaving Pompey altogether for a huge warehouse located centrally in Wolverhampton. Similarly to CRC, Wiggle stock many own brands, such as dhb, Eastway, Lifeline and Verenti, as well as bike, components and clothing from all of the leading manufacturers. Despite it's origins as a bike shop, Wiggle continue to stock equipment and apparel for not just road cycling and mountain biking, with extensive product lines for other disciplines such as triathlon kit, children's and commuters products and also running clothing and accessories. Prompt in delivery, and offering efficient returns and competitive pricing, Wiggle remain a firm favourite amongst serious and recreational cyclists alike, not least because of the customary bags of Haribo they include free with orders to keep their customers sweet!
