The Pros:Very lightweight, easy to lift and get airborne. Pedals have good grip, won't let your feet slip off. Ships partially assembled, remainder of the setup is easy.
The Cons:Sprocket is a weak point, can be bent fairly easily by serious riders. Need to be somewhat comfortable with basic tools to assemble the bike.

The 8.25" x 28" size of the handlebars helps to ensure smooth steering that is tight when it needs to be. The Eastern Reaper also comes equipped with Eastern Fuquay Flyer grips. These grips help the rider keep a firm grip on their BMX, even when things get dicey. The Eastern Curb Monkey front and rear tires are built to withstand hard falls when they need to. The tires are purported to be durable, which is a must for a trick BMX. There have not been many reviews of the Eastern Reaper, or of the en25T sprocket
