So Josh perry put about his new SIG frame from eastern... So they can't be completely out the game if a new frame is on its way?

From what we saw a while back from one of the owners, there were issues that were being handled and they are coming back full swing soon enough.

The josh perry frame actually seems pretty good. A full pound heavier than the grim reaper 8 lol.

I want a Reaper 8 or a Transcend honestly. They'd be sick.

Jon Byers actually direct messaged me, and there was a lot more than what was brought up back then, but long story short, they are definitely coming back full swing with some new stuff soon-he mentioned some 2016 models being out in time.

I'm actually super excited to see what they have to offer!

I've thought about possibly running a grim again, even if they lasted less than a year at a time I loved how they rode.

I thought they changed there welding practices also.

I never snapped mine on the welds, always where the internal butting was on the downtube and once the BB separated from the rest of the frame.

They "updated" to what the rest of the entire industry already does.

Hey can you add more detail comparing their bikes v. others methods? I have a 2006(?) Eastern Jane and would be interested, cause I remember their site having some info about how their welds were more thorough etc. Did they change over time, like earlier years/models vs. the late-year super-light stuff that had issues? Thanks
