Words By Lydia Tanner Photos By Ethan Scott Picture a girl on a bike: her hair is whipping in the wind, she’s pedaling hard, and she’s leaving clouds of dust curling in her wake.

Easton Haven Carbon Wheels — Part one

04.02.2010 //

All-mountain goes bulletproof 
The use of composites in bicycle manufacturing is hardly a new idea; frame builders have been utilizing bonded carbon fiber tubes since the mid-1970s, and as carbon-composite technology advanced, wheels and components were quickly embraced by the skinny-tire world.
