Anyone know how good this frame is?

Photo


I'm not getting it, but we have one at the bike shop and since my friend cracked his frame and the Eastern frame's been sitting in the shop for like 2 years now almost, the owner's gonna give him a really good deal on it, but my friend's a bigger guy (muscle wise) and isn't exactly a smooth rider all the time, so I wanna make sure he's not gonna fuck this frame up really fast.

I don't care if your friend's brother's fiance's secret boyfriend's daughter's creepy 50 year old friend on facebook's cousin had an Eastern frame & it sucked, or something like that, cause that seems to happen every time an Eastern frame thread is made haha.

I wanna know from people who have/had it, or know someone who has one who got it first hand and knows their experience with it.

Seems like a really good frame just looking at the specs but you never know

I had a friend who was no more than 5'6" and looked like a twig. Also a park rat, wasnt all too rough on it. 1 year and the TT cracked through.

Shit. I'll tell my friend that. I don't know what he wants to do yet cause he leaves for the Navy in February and said he just wants something to ride until then, and if he still has a big interest in bmx after he gets out of basic or whatever, he'll just buy a new, better frame with the money he earns. $125 for the Eastern frame is a good deal, I just don't want him to snap it in like a month haha

Oh shit well if it is only 125 go for it. haha it is a nice ass frame for that. And if it isnt gonna be put thru hell he might as well ride it til then.

For sure. And he doesn't do a lot of big drops but he does like grinding handrails and is a big fan of doing 180's & somehow slamming down really hard upon landing. I think it'll last, I'll tell him he can dish out he $125 for that frame or dish out some more for frame that'll last & he'll be happy with

Maybe. I've honestly never dealt with buying parts on here, would rather find someone local haha.

But I sent him the Solidbikes frame link, if he's not into it, I'll lurk the for sale section for him. I just don't wanna get scammed or anything, I'm legit even though I have no references for selling/buying. For sure wouldn't scam someone, but that doesn't mean someone else won't try

People said the same to me when I had an Eastern Journey, it lasted me like 2 years, and then I sold it to someone who is still riding.
