Eastern Scythe (2010)
Released January, 2010
The Pros:Good feel for freestyling, easy to get up on one wheel. Maneuverable enough to take verticals with ease. Grips are perfect, easy to hang on to and don't slip off.
The Cons:Pedals can't take much abuse, will break with heavy use. Rims aren't very sturdy, will warp if you hit a curb too hard. Hard time dealing with rough terrain or trails.
The Eastern Scythe is a premium model in the Eastern Pro series of BMXs. Like all the bikes in the Eastern Pro series, the Eastern Scythe is built for advanced tricking. The handlebars that come stock on the Eastern Scythe are 4130 chromoly, which means they should be able to stand up to the punishment of serious tricking.

The 8.25" x 28" size of the handlebars should make for precise, comfortable steering. The Eastern Scythe also comes equipped with Eastern Coral grips. These help to ensure that the rider keeps a firm grip on their BMX even when the terrain gets dicey. The Eastern Curb Monkey front tire and Eastern Burnout rear tire should also be able to withstand bumpy terrain. These tires are also built to absorb heavy landings and hard falls. There have not been many reviews of the Eastern Scythe of the Eastern Pro series in general.
