I purchase a set of EC90 Aero's and i rode in them 200 miles including a TT event...
they are great and fast!!! those bearings roll foreever.
Once morning I hear a popping sound and notoces that my from wheel was not right.
I shipped the wheels to Easton and they repair the wheels in a week and returned them to me under warranty. when Im setting up the wheels i notices 2 issues:
1. i look on the packing slip and i see they replaced all my bearing with Hybrids instead of the ceramic bearings that should come on the R4SL hub the wheels do not spin as freely as before. Any thoughts on that did i get robbed?
2. To make matters worst i instaled the read wheel on the bike and pedal and shifted all the gears on the stand an when i let the cranks go.... they continued to turn... so when I
grabbed the crank and held them in place the wheel continued to spin but i was able to noticesome friction in the free hib because with the crank held in place the wheel speed starts to slow down faster than before.
I stopped the wheel and started spinnning the crank in reverse and to my surprise the wheel stated spriining backwards.... this tells me there's excesieve friction in there...
-I'm new to this fancy wheels so is this is normal do they required some break in?
any recomendations? I sent the wheels to EASTON because they are the experts but after getting the posible wrong bearings installed and issues like this and pretty hesitant
any Ideas what's going on?
