  • The Good:

    light and more stronger

    The Bad:

    more flex when i tried on my bar.

    Overall Review: I've tried many experiment coz i'm work on ti fabrication and i think ti is not good for frame and handle bar but another part is ok.Ti crank is good coz with right ratio of thickness it's will be strong and light and it just 175mm more shorter is more hard to brake if welding process was follow...

  • The Good:

    Good dimensions, good colors.

    The Bad:

    Don't know how strong they are.

    Overall Review: I work at a shop and we have some of these and I'm wondering if they're worth trying. I basically want 8" piff bars, thats basically what these dimensions are. I notice no one mentioned how tall or heavy they are which seems like pretty relevant information. I'm 6'1" 210, so i'm a heavier rid...

  • The Good:

    light weight great for dirt, street, park

    The Bad:

    bent spindle, snapped bars

    Overall Review: its a geat bike, got it to start with, learned 180s, 360s, and a bunch of dirt tricks, obviously shit will bend and break when theres stupid kids thinkin there cool for jumping stairs and gaps and exspecting metal to not give out, over all best stock frame, got built parts like, profile wheel se...

  • The Good:

    The Bad:

    Overall Review: dont get it not worth it

  • The Good:

    Strong. Light. Responsive. The cutout in the BB is not big deal: eastern provides a spacer to protect the spindle from dirt. This is the best frame I have rode. Tricks and jumps are effortless on it. *note* the specs listed here are wrong. The frame is 4.03 lbs, and does come in a 20inch toptube, as that is what I have.

    The Bad:

    The built in chain tensioners are a 2mm bolt. Weak as hell. I broke them the first day I rode. My advice: take them out and get axle mounted tension adjusters. That is my one and only complaint.

    Overall Review: Awesome frame. I reccomend this frame for beginners and pros alike.

  • The Good:

    lightweight

    The Bad:

    dirt in the cutouts

    Overall Review: nice frame but i dont like the bb cutout so much

  • The Good:

    light, cult outs if your into that kind of stuff

    The Bad:

    i dont like the geo

    Overall Review: alot of my friends had them and they held up really good and eastern has the best warranty so you really cant go wrong with eastern

  • The Good:

    Strong, and one of the best frames to date.

    The Bad:

    A little on the heavy side.

    Overall Review: I built this frame 2 months ago and the geometry is still up to date. Before this frame I had a fit. And this is cuts above any fit frame to date. When carving fast in bowl this frame stays stiff, I have yet to set on another frame that is as stiff as this one. Thanks Eastern for a bad ass frame.

  • The Good:

    One of the lightest frames that is can be used for street riding.

    The Bad:

    Some crack on the top tube. (but that is want the warranty is for)

    Overall Review: Eastern rules. All this little kids buy them and don't take care of them. And then they give bad reviews. Stop giving Eastern a bad name, it is one of the top names in BMX. So quit hating!

    Posted by Evil1_4real on 3/15/2011 5:53 AM

  • The Good:

    light, good geometry, good if you ride smooth and in dry conditions

    The Bad:

    in wet or dirty conditions dirt, or water WILL, get in thought the hole under the bb and ruin the bb completely, also the water will most likely snap the seatstay aswell, because it's so thin and weak there.

    Overall Review: it's light, but nowadays you can get better frames the same weight. i had one for about 7-8 months second hand, with brand new bb, and it absolutely screwed the bb, and seatstay snapped, but suprisingly it was totally rideable after that, just a little bouncy. if you really want something with t...

  • The Good:

    This bike has an extremely minimal weight. The Bike is tough as heck. It is a great bike for learners as well as experts.

    The Bad:

    This bike has almost nothing bad about it. But, it would be nice if you received a treaded rear tire as well as the park tire.

    Overall Review: This is my second bike, and it is a good bike for anything that you throw at it, ranging from jumping to street and back to park. My Traildigger has been lightened to nineteen pounds by upgrading the parts, but this bike is fine the way it comes.

  • The Good:

    didnt regret buying it was worth it

    The Bad:

    i dont like the stem thats about it

    Overall Review: great bike for hardcore riders

    Posted by Ron44ald on 3/11/2011 9:11 AM

  • The Good:

    Light weight

    The Bad:

    WEAK, small teeth.

    Overall Review: I blew out a crank hole in just a few months, and I've NEVER had a crank hole blow out. A few extra ounces around the crank holes would have made a huge difference, and the tiny teeth are just asking to snap. A decent sprocket only has to weigh a very minimal amount more, and being the lightes...

  • The Good:

    Really fast and rolls really smooth for park.

    The Bad:

    gets flats easy and wears down extremely fast.

    Overall Review: well... lets just say this tire is most certainly for park use only... ride street for five minutes and you already have a flat... and dirt... i dont even want to go there.

    Posted by mclemens9 on 3/8/2011 10:21 PM

  • The Good:

    It lasts for about 9 months, good grip

    The Bad:

    Gets deformed... mine came deformed and once it starts wearing down a bit it gets flats easy.

    Overall Review: wouldn't be my first choice buts its good for the price.

    Posted by mclemens9 on 3/8/2011 10:17 PM

  • The Good:

  • The Good:

    solid frame been riding it for only 3 months now and its held up,no frame flex at all. Love it

    The Bad:

    head tube angle could be tighter

    Overall Review: kick ass. like it better then the grim reaper.

  • The Good:

    lasted a long time
    great grip
    light

    The Bad:

    after about 6 months the tire started to stretch and developed a wiggle.

    Overall Review: its a great tire. i would recommend the hp version over the kevlar because the kevlar starts to deform.

  • The Good:

    it works perfect and smooth, pretty quick engagement, not too hard to flip flop, overall great hub--plus the eastern hub guards are compatible with it

    The Bad:

    could be lighter?? other than that i got nothing bad

    Overall Review: its a good looking hub that holds up great, what more could you ask for?

    Posted by Philip Hatchett on 2/25/2011 11:07 PM

  • The Good:

    better than what i expected.

    The Bad:

    i have had no problems so far.

    Overall Review: great hub in general i honestly thought it wouldn't hold up but it's done great. i highly recommend to anybody with a budget.

  • The Good:

    Super light! 20 pound bike even with heavy parts.

    The Bad:

    They dont make it in a 20.75

    Overall Review: I have heard all the rumors and even talked crap when my friend got one (he weighs 200pounds and wrecks all day and he didnt even put a scratch on it untill some one slammed their bike on his when loading it in the truck) I then got the V2 with lightning rod tubing in chrome 20.5 for $330 shipp...
