BLACK BETTY, OH BAM BA LAM!!!

The sweet new Eastern Black Betty MTB frame is finally in stock. Call your LBS. This pretty lady is feature-packed and light weight at only 5.5 lbs. Betty's got our Eastern original integrated seatpost clamp, a laser-cut EB headtube logo, and a host of other features including a wax-lost molded chainstay yoke. The aforementioned yoke is really the cornerstone of this frame as it brings the back-end to a snappy 14.75 inches. She's available in both black and white, with a 21.5" top tube and your choice of rear axle sizes; 10 or 14mm.

I dig it! What do you guys think?

I think this thread is missing something...

Had to do it.

On topic, that's a nice looking frame, but I don't think I'd pay 460 for that.

I don't personally like the look of the chainstay yoke. i mean it is functional for the intended purpose, but not aesthetically pleasing to me.

And how many hubs out there are 14mm, disc, 135mm spacing?

Anyone know what Eastern's warranty department is like. I was just reading about their limited lifetime warranty and it seems like the usual frame warranty, but how does the company handle it. I know that Trek is pretty good with warranties without trying to say misuse or abuse since thats what these bikes should be made for.

I'd rather have one of the new Spank frames. Since I'm gonna be doing a bunch of competing this year, it would be nice to rock a sweet frame and bars and rims and stuff. I wonder if that would even be possible? ;)
Soon...Gavin is out of town till mid January. We will talk than. I know we have to change your signature...;) ;)

I haven't had any issues. We had 1 Slash frame crack on a weld. The new bike was in the customers hands in a mattter of days. It is a little different than your standard warranty. With Eastern you can trade in your frame and a little dough for any upgrade frame whenever you want, not just when it is broken.
