I don't like the idea, but it's good that Eastern is trying different things. Maybe they'll actually make something good, for once. If companies didn't try to "think outside the box" (even though Eastern is a bit too far out of the box..) we'd still be riding bikes like that!

But that's not a good way to think outside the box because the integrity of the parts and standards are decreasing greatly when you start cutting holes in them. They are supposed to be lighter and stronger- not one or the other.

We'll, you never know. What do they have to lose? I'd imagine all the weight people don't mind them..And they are fairly cheap so if you ever "grind through them", buy a new set. I'm not trying to stick up for Eastern because I've had problems with them myself, but I don't see this being too much of a horrible idea.

Well, the "what do they have lose" part is quite true. I don't know how much further down their rep can go.
