I did not see anything about it being heat treated but I like the geo on it, does any one think the price for the spec it comes with ($164.99) is worth it, because I honestly think so, i mean look at the haro zebra, that thing is just the bare basic version of a bmx frame... sure the fulcrum is lighter, but at least if i break this frame SOMEHOW, i am backed with the lifetime warranty/upgrade that eastern has

here is the list

// Full 4130 Japanese Chromoly

// CNC’d Mid Bottom Bracket

// Double-Butted Top Tube

// Extra-Thick Butted Down Tube

// Single-Butted Seat Tube

// Gussets on both Down Tube and Top Tube

// Tapered Chain Stays

// 75 Degree Head tube angle

// 71 Degree Seat tube angle

// 7.4″ Standover Height

// 13.2″ Rear End

all that in a frame for $165

im honestly interested because of the....

-shorter rear end
-lower standover
-double gussetts

everything else seems nice on it too

Welp, broke past 1000... yeeeee

Until some big heavyset dude buys it and jumps off a roof and lands flat & destroys the frame, then diss Eastern because their super cheap/light frame didn't last em haha. I'm real into how it looks though

I love it. I would buy that frame honestly. Im not too into the low frame, but it makes can cans and whips a lot more possible for me and there is a reason you have a seatpost. haha it is a great tech frame by the looks of it and pretty damned light. Only problem is, idk where the hell to get it. I WANT AN EASTERN. haha

Local bike shop. Eastern stopped distributing to mail orders to help support bike shops so you HAVE to get their stuff from them (from what I hear)

Veinbmx MIGHT be able to get you one since they have some tie in with Eastern

I personally wouldn't get it but if you don't ride hard it could be good.

Obviously since it's light , street rats and park mice are gonna kill the frame. But for the smooth rider , this is a steal. Or even for trying a lower standover frame , for the price , thats amazing !

Honestly I am considering that frame.

I have a federal lacey, but that looks nice.

exactly what I was thinking about eastern, like i thought they were headed for the shitter real' quick but damn their parts look pretty damn good, and a lot of other new things are way more low priced now

i mean i was wanting the eastern enso complete because of the coaster and brakes but the 19" top tube was a non compatibility in my book because it was a flatland complete haha

EDIT: lol this is my old account haha, I was the one who started this thread

Not a bad deal at all......I wouldn't see myself ridin something with that low of a standover.......if you ride 19mm spindle cranks look into the guerra martyr it's a pretty cheap prices frame and mines been holding up well......similar geo just a bit taller standover height
