Well so far I’m not impressed with the stopping power. I guess I may need to adjust them. If I go the black pads route, which pads are recommended?

I have clear pads on my 2017 Eastern Element. I was told this is because I have a black rim and the clear pads won’t scratch the rim. Is this true? They squeal so loud. I’d be willing to go to black pads if they won’t scratch up the rim.

I thought so too. Unfortunately going to kids birthday parties has consumed my day today so staring at the box is all I have time for so far. Stand by for more pics soon....

Thanks all for the reply. I just ordered this in white since I had a bunch of amazon gift cards and it was in my price range. This is my very first BMX bike so wish me luck!

Gotcha thanks! So what are the "tubes" that you said are not mentioned? Which "tubes" would those be?

Unless I'm missing something, looks like the 2017 is all Chromoly http://www.easternbikes.com/element-2017?custcoldd_matrix_year=2&custcol23=80

Let me know what they say as I’m looking at ordering the same thing. On a side note, is the entire frame black? Normally Eastern puts a sticker that says “Eastern” on the frame somewhere. Did they leave that off of this model.
