Weight is not a problem, stop being a cissy and just ride.

What about the guy on road fools with his 50 lbs bike. He can still do rails and stuff on it

That thing weighed more than 50 lbs... it was like solid metal. That was so sick.

If I remember correctly, that is a race bike. You just like it because it doesn't weigh that much. If you really want a new bike get the DK Six Pack and then just stop complaining. This same thing has been asked many times before, so just going up to the top and searching for it would be a lot easier, as it is in the rules of the forums... which I am sure you read.

lets break it down line by line.

1) no bike is too heavy, your just too weak.

2. front sprocket? you say it as if there is a back sprocket. It's called a freewheel or cassete (or freecoaster depedning on the bike i guess).

3. whats a firend?

4. what's an opion? and stop worry so much about weight, just buy a bike of dans. for your uses they'll all be good.

Actully its a freewheel, or a driver, or a cog.

You realize I just told you all about the bike and why you shouldn't get it, right?

It's not too terrible, but there have been a lot of problems with the back hub. If I were you, I would just get a DK Six Pack.

Get a Fit Flow or Integral Bel Air. Stay away from Eastern.

It's way worth the money. If you don't spend it now you're going to be spending it later so i'd just go for now and get a dialed bike out of the box.

Eastern is just a sketchy company in general, and their hubs (especially that of those on the Element) are known to be a bit faulty.

My friend has got an element and the rear hub is an unsealed cassete, it just screwed up completly. He bent the dropouts on the frame aswell from grinding.

My friend who is sketchy as hell has that Eastern cassette wheel that you can get on dans laced to some **** Alex rim. He's got the wheel bent to hell but that hub still runs really smooth. You can spin it and the driver will not move, just click. Butter smooth.
