    the flair is better but unoriginal... everyone gots one... if its all u can afford go with the flair.

    look at specialized, diamondback, gt, mongoose, and dk ( they're all basically the same)

    i guess I will go to a store and look at some bikes near my home
    however
    i weigh 205 and increasing and can run over a curb pretty fast on a bike after lifting the front
    so
    since eastern is
    advertised for not breaking I might try to find a used eastern to get a bike


    maybe
    if it rides ok i might get one but want or would need or like to know factors like which class or model to by

    well try to judge for urself... look at the quality of the frame (chromolly, size of top-tube etc.) check out the wheels...(14mm axels?, 48spoke?, 1 wall or triple or double?, sealed axel bearings?) also for your size ur gunna need a 3 piece crank, i suggest to scrap the stock one and go for Primo (exel or powerbite) or Profile. I only weigh 160 and i'm running a Primo exel crank.
    b4 u buy the bike ride it and make sure there are no plastic parts. n/e eastern is good but if ur buying used take into consideration what i said above
