I would stay away from eastern bikes, had eastern grim reaper and that fucker cracked in 2 places
update: I have found a kink 2012 liberty for about the same price as well
if ur a beginer u wont crack it, i cracked it when i done a flare and the rear triangle twisted and it cracked in 2 places
Idk if ur open to other suggestions but if I were you I'd get a subrosa arum xl
i used to like pork till i found out it came from cops...
subrosa will be much better, then eastern or kink
i just looked up a couple of Subrosa bikes but I dunno.
I like the look and colors of Eastern and Kink more, is the difference between these 2 and Subrosa major?
I might add Im not going to be pulling out some high aerial movesor anything extreme.
just crusing around in the neigborhood and pulling off light tricks in the BMX park
im pretty heavy in weight as well, I am about 225 lbs
whats your price range? there's alot of nice compleates out there. check out the fit wifi, its one of the best compleates out there. also even though 90% of the people on here hate them, check out vein bmx. they can have some big sales.
Kink liberty is a damn good bike, look into Fit and We The People. i personally suggest staying away from eastern completes, their highend stuff is nice though.

Id say you go with the kink liberty
Kink liberty the way to go my friend had the grim reaper but in chrome it rusts easily and his cracked bad

PrimoPro Hub All Day
Tan Walls above all
get the liberty! I still got mine holding strong 100% chromoly, great geo, just one of the best bikes for the price!
Dr.Pepper is the shit, i wish i was sponsored by it, but then id get diabetes....
Asking which brand is better on vital is like asking people on the street whats they favourite sports team... everyone will have a different opinion, mostly based on personal experience in this case
Remember that no product no matter what brand makes it is safe from normal wear and tear. I doubt you will break anything whichever bike you choose, but atleast if you break the reaper Jon here will prob give you a new one :D
The Kink Liberty is probably the best one out and your topic for the price. Everything is sealed and fully chromoly. If you decide on getting the 2012 Liberty, you might wanna switch out the tires first thing cause they suck.
Kink is a great brand. If I were to choose a complete it would be Kink or WTP. I wouldn't recommend Eastern. While their frames, forks, and bars are better now, all the parts they come with are absolute garbage, even for beginners. A Kink would be your best bet, Liberty or better. Good luck getting started
Your flying through the desert in your canoe, and your tire pops. How many pancakes does it take to cover a doghouse?
None silly! There's no chicken bones in applesauce
go with fit bro thats your best choice
Id go with kink liberty, still have mine from 2010 no damage and I weight 94kg, I did change some random parts but they weren't expensive.
I'd go with the Liberty
Don't get me wrong hi end Eastern stuff is good i just find the grim reaper to be a little too light
You wont be disappointed withe the Kink a kid i know owns one and it's legit
