Overall Review:

So far it is doing great! I bought it used and it had barely been ridden. I have done a lot of beginner/intermediate concrete park and some light street riding. It feels much better than my older early 2000 Haro that I had put away for 15 years. It spins decent and manuals easily over boxes but I haven't gotten them dialed on flat ground, yet. The only changes I have made are some odyssey clear brake pads and a stolen top load stem to raise the bars a touch. I get a lot of good feedback on the look of the bike with the flat black and gold wheels. I was a little worried about the Eastern parts due to some reviews online but everything is holding up very well and I ride several times a week. Not to mention I am fairly heavy and have crashed plenty.

The brakes did not perform well at all. I am getting light rust on the bolts for the pedals and bolts on the crank arms but I carry it with me daily in my truck and it has seen some rain.

UPDATE: 7/3/17 I have been super happy with this bike. The only part that has broken is the chain (just last week). I had the rear wheel trued one time. The sprocket is getting close to needing replaced. I also replaced the brake system with some Fly Manuals (much better). I am 220lbs and I ride 3-4 times per weeks at the local concrete skate park. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Eastern bike.
