On Velonews it said that Easton released the EC90SL wheels , a 38mm carbon wheelset that weighs just under 1300 grams. (released at Sea Otter) R4sl hubs. Anyone have any more info? I think they are tubulars, not sure. I would really like to see them make a full carbon clincher, I'd be all over that!!

Are you able to tell me if the all carbon clinchers are coming?? I am trying to decide between Reynolds and Edge, but would prefer a set of Eastons, and would wait for them if they were coming. Otherwise, I am leaning towards the Edges. Thanks!!!
