On ebay i found this bmx bike that is $400 dollar and its fully chrm with double wall rims but its from this brand that i never heard of. Thought to myself theres no way this bike can be so cheap and have double wall rims so i ask myself if its legit or scam.

Also was looking at STOLEN HEIST 2018 BIKE which has chrm main tubes and 2018 FIT NORDSTORM which is 100% chrm with single wall rim. Theryre both the same price but idk which one is better.

You've really never heard of Eastern? They're making pretty damn solid entry level full chromoly bikes.

Out of those three bikes, no question, get the one that's FULL chromoly. That will last you the longest. That would be the Eastern. I also believe the Eastern Shovelhead is full chromoly as well.

Parts will eventually wear and break on any bike, so you want the strongest frame/fork/bars possible.

Most people here, even people who have purchased an Eastern Shovelhead, also don't know how they're selling them so cheap. Either way, full chromoly is the way to go.

The 2018 Eastern Shovelhead is the best bike for the money, for $410 the extra $10 is worth it than that other Eastern... it has better components than the Nagas...

I don't own a shovelhead but it's definitely the most bike you can get in a new complete for anywhere near that much money.

Its on Ebay but its from a legit bike shop in New Jersey

I have the '17 Shovelhead & can't say enough good things about it. & the '18 is even better. If it's in you price range, you can't go wrong.

It’s very important not to round numbers when looking at bike geometry and measurements.
