Stock wheels (Easton)
I've had this bike for over 4 years (5k miles) and I've put it through the ringer. It's been on everything from fun flowy singletrack to rock gardens, 3' drops, snow, XC racing, you name it. I've upgraded just about everything over the years but not out of necessity. The weakest area for me were the stock wheels from Easton. I stripped the rear wheel hub (warranty) and then the replacement wheel as well. But with the Stans Arch MK3 this baby rocks!
