went to the shop today to get a new brake cable and got to see some of the new stuff in person.

the new choker stem looks legit, the strangler looks like ass and they said its hard to get adjusted, and i got to see the new nitrous double shot wheels which also looked pretty damn good for a wheelset that only costs $165.

also got to see a couple of the new completes, the reaper is friggen nice!!! i wish they had a boss though, i really want to test ride one.

just thought i'd share since people have had some questions about this stuff lately.

jason probably said something like "just buy s@m because it's the best."

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.

Are they removing paint from the bars, clamp surfaces, and steer tube? (I know it is a shop, but so many fail to do this)

It's all good, that would be my first guess as to the slipping, that or stupid customers messing with shit after it is set.

because moseasterns cranks are pretty good and cheap too
they were more than i thought they would be too i was thinking that they were goind to be the step above the pros or stealths which ever is the better set and cost between 110 and 130
not the 160 or whatever they are
and im not saying they are bad

price wise. eastern usually puts out some pretty good stuff but for a lower cost than most. at $165, i think i'd might just stick with profiles.

and alexnjbmx, i don't think their stuff is shit. i'm not on that band wagon. i was expecting it to be lower in prices since they're cranks are know to be decent with low prices. i'll admit, they not my favorite company and i have cracked their sprocket, but what company doesn't have a bad part or 2?
