There are several that have been produced and waiting for shipment.. Mike and I are trying to get these over. It's an incredible frame .. my son is riding a prototype from this manufacturer, who is very small and meticulous about details.. these are ... more »

Read the court documents...ALL of the documents. I suppose you could say that, but running a business for 18 years isn't exactly irresponsible. Any business owner knows you won't last even 1 year.

Actually, that is incorrect Independent bicycle dealers were the largest business.

Kyle, I'd like to thank you for posting this. However, I would like to make this my personal communication about the situation. Speculation is what leads to stonings and the sort, so I'd like to step in to clarify and make sure everyone does a little ... more »

20-30usd sounds reasonable if you "stripped" it yourself and used a color they were running that day. anything over 50 is too much...make sure you go over one more time right before you give it to them so there is absolutely no rust.. but there is no ... more »

Normally, I'll let these threads roll on without replying just to see the crazy rumors, but in this case I'll end the speculation. Mike and I started Eastern and have always owned it. I’ve known Leigh since I was in High School and there are so many ... more »

The Ambers are not re-branded Easterns.

it's a prototype with the hydroformed rear seat stays we were working on.

man, this stuff has been going around taiwan like vd for the last year or so.. every maker can do it. it's just so damn expensive, so it's probably not going to happen on a frame.

bmx4orlife This is Jon from Eastern. I'm not sure what happened here, but you shouldn't have to wait that long. Our guys are usually fast and on top of customer service issues. I've forwarded your post to my guys, but can you email ... more »

Dear Sunny, This is Jon. I co-own Eastern. I'm assuming your looking at 2012 models vs. 2013 because that's where your links point to. The reaper is your best bet as it has 48-splined cranks (all the other models have 8-splined cranks). ... more »

sorry, I should have been more specific. If it's hit rolling in over coping or something similar it's probably going to be ok, if it's used to sprocket chunk rails and cars all day it's probably going to bend. There are a whole ... more »

Added reply in a thread eastern sprocket question 12/24/2012 5:58 PM

it's not indestructible (no sprocket is), but it is definitely stronger than the 6061 versions. This is why i had them labeled on the back side with the 7075 info. yes, definitely avoid hitting it if you can. This sprocket was always meant to be lightweight, ... more »
