Eastern's groundbreaking Grim Reaper frame is now its seventh incarnation, and new features include integrated chain tensioners in the CNC'd dropouts, a heat-treated wide bottom bracket with a new cutout, a Helix down tube, the sleek Slant alloy seat clamp and more. Karl Poynter's new signature two -piece bars feature post weld heat-treating, an 8.8 rise, 12 degrees of backsweep and 4 degrees of upsweep. Meanwhile, Josh Perry's new signature Pivotal seat is constructed of Kevlar, with extra thick foam padding and an embossed Eastern Bikes logo.
