Eastern sent over a whole bunch of info on the frame preferred by Brian Wizmerski and Kelly Bolton. Learn all about it below -

"In Mexico, Vaquero is Spanish for cowboy. And a Mexican cowboy is one tough podré. Much like Easterns Vaquero frame that is built to take the abuse of heavy riding. This frame is strong, straightforward and to the point. The Vaquero features the new Lowboy seat clamp, butted top and down tubes made with extra thick tubing, a wide bottom bracket and more. We want you to have a choice at Eastern Bikes and if you need a frame to take the hardest riding you can dish out then the Vaquero might be for you."

Here is what the riders had to say about the Vaquero Frame:

"I picked the Vaquero because it’s a frame that has more stability and a slower geometry. The 74.5 head tube angle gives me a smoother, not so jerky ride. I like a long frame and the Vaquero comes in21.25” which helps us 6ft plus riders spin big bars. It’s a big boy bike and that’s why I ride it." - Kelly Bolton

I had been running the Reaper frame since I had got on the team, and was ready to try another frame. Leigh told me this one was coming out and I am not disappointed. All the way down to the graphics this bike feels and looks awesome. Still can't pronounce the name though.

    i had this frame for a while and it is a fucking beast...the ONLY reason why i don't have it now is because i wanted to try a more responsive geometry since this frame has pretty all around average geometry (74.5 headtube, 13.75 backend, etc.)...i traded it for my friends Dak, its still hanging up in his garage now, im gunna get it back once this frame explodes

    I've found Eastern products to be of excellent quality and haven't had any more broken parts compared to other brands I use and sell. Yeah, it's weird how bike guys like to hate on everything they aren't using or style they're ridding.....it's the hipster in 'em, haha

    Eastern makes great parts and this frame is really tough. It is built to take a beating from the best riders today. I think it is sad that Eastern has all these haters.
