    Thanks, Im thinking about just buying a neigherbors eastern, But Im not sure yet, I mean, I have too earn the money and I want too make the right decision, And this is what Im left with.

    Pay $140 for sealed crank bb and arms
    Pay $200 for a used eastern with money into it.

    Ive been leaning towards the eastern, beings most people tell me Haros metal is junk.

    Hey, I'm just happy to see people riding, no matter what it is.

    The rider in my avatar is David Etxebarria, not me.

    Yeah I personally dont care what people say about my bike, it does me well, and in my book, thats what counts.

    I just like bikes .

    I tried to do BMX, but I was not very good at it (I had a balance problem when I was trying), so my husband convinced me that my other bikes were enough to keep me busy .

    Welcome to BikeForums, and don't hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions.

    I might find it a bit easier now (my balance problems cleared up), but I have 11 road bikes and one MTB to keep me busy instead!
