    My Black Betty is just waiting to be shipped, The '08 Nightrains have the same geo I'm told. Your bike's sick. How do you like those BM bars?

    Funny you should ask, I just called Eastern 2 days ago and have not heard back, but they had a hold up at the manufacturer, something about the dropout design. Late January I was told the last part of Feb it would be shipped.

    I will definitely post when I get it.

    Yikes, if its the same frame as the Nighttrain or Thunderbird, you might as well spend a little more and get the rest of the bike.

    There is a cs difference I believe. 14.75 BB vs 15.3 on the night train, the steel may be different too, I can't remember. Plus, I am doing a full build, I am not a fan of buying "completes".

    Completes make sense to those of us who don't have a good wheelset, crankset, etc.

    Wish Eastern would make another 24" Sus-Specific MTB.
