For all of those people out there that hate Easter so much, why do you hate them? For all of you guys out there that support/like Eastern, why do you like them? I personally like them more than most other brands especially including Shadow.

Why do I like them?
They actually improve without going too far from usaul & their shit is always on sale. Its the same quality as others except you hear those trend whores scream when you get an eastern part. Also easterns warranty dept. Is amazing.

Since Ezra/Amber/Guerra/Eastern all work closely together I consider them the same company.
The rear of one of my stems got messed up so they sent me a new one bolts & all which made me really happy to see a companystill has that high of standards.

If you want any kind of Eastern parts, Veinbmx is the place to go. They have super shityass parts to pro quality stuff on there. And yes, Eastern is also in that category.

i had a bad experience with a complete from them. i dont prefer them but one thing i do like is how the bidirectional wheel was on sale. that whole wheel is nice. i can expect having all the shit break fast on a low end complete

I dont say stupid things, just no one knows what im talking about.

Well, this thread has bee done several times.

Most often the responses for hate are either they broke a part or two (but always claim they did everything perfectly for installing etc, and the parts "just suck") or they "saw their friends break 6596516465461656 Eastern parts".

I can understand being upset with parts giving out, BUT if they break you need to consider what you put them through. Did you do a bunch of 5 foot drops? Do you hop a lot of stair sets? Do you slide a lot of rails? Did you land flat boosting a quarter? Did you case on a quarter? Do you throw your bike when you are mad? Do you take care of odd noises when you first hear them, or ignore them until it becomes a major issue? Do you land sideways all the time? Do you huck yourself or are you smooth? There are so many factors that most kids don't get. They ride a part, beat the shit out of it, and get pissed when it doesn't last forever, claiming the company makes crap parts, but in all reality it is THEIR fault.

When I ran the Journey frame, I got asked if I was stupid a bunch of times for buying Eastern by kids that just got into riding that month. They buy into the hype and hate they see online, and cannot back up their opinion with experience. Funny thing is my Journey frame was sold to a buddy who is STILL running it, no bends, no cracks, nothing. Outlived ALL of their frames so far, from companies they claimed were "the best thing ever".

I would bet that many of the haters that broke parts from Eastern throw their bike, treat it like crap, beat the hell out of it, don't maintain it, and/or use improper tools when installing parts.

Theres nothing wrong with Eastern at all. Its because Eastern also looks out for the kids that can't afford a custom and put out shit cheap completes.Then a kid buys their $200 complete and its passed all around between freinds and then it cracks after a year from constant throwing and shit. Eastern is great. My friend has had the Reaper 7 for the past 2 months and the thing is so sold. I'm sure it will out last my fly. My friend just retired his night tramp, and that thing has been through hell and back, and still not cracked, bent, snapped or anything. It was ridden by 4 people, and they all ride HARD.

Eastern also has some of the best warranty in the game, just along with Animal, S&M, and Odyssey.

Eastern has slowly turned into one of my favorite brands haha.
They make dope parts. Everything I've had from them I love. Some locals think my bike is the best bike ever in the world, then when I tell them there's a bunch of Eastern on it they're mindblown...Smh. I feel like they're a brand that's always moving forward and developing new things. That's what BMX needs to progress.
