lol...I remember when Easton bikes where the little 20-inchers that all the 'street biker' kids rode..lol

For those of you that don't remember Reagan in the white house, 'street biking' used to be the term used to describe BMX bikes.

pffft I don't know, thier 2 hardtails look nice but i'm not so sure about that fully. The top tube and seat tube on it looks pethetic, it like 1'' tubeing with the rest of the bike is big and beffy. I'm not saying it's not strong juust dosent look right. But what is kinda cool about that fully is it comes with replacable drops outs and you can get horizantal ones if you want so you can run SS, why someone would run SS on that bike, idk.

And they still are, they're making quite a few advances in weight savings and offer the largest line of Ti parts.

Hell, they're the only company that can build a 18lb street BMX with four pegs.

I think I'd opt for a Double or a Bottle Rocket instead.

Well, the fully (if you watch the vid) is 7005 alum with a decently gusseted head tube / top tube junction. The rear triangle is from Ellsworth. The bike weighs less than 35lbs.
