Eastern Thunderbird (2010)
Released January, 2010
The Pros:Overall smooth ride, glides over bumpy terrain. Light enough to maneuver well in the park. Stable on hard landings, won't topple easily.
The Cons:Seat can get a little uncomfortable for street riding. Able to do a fair amount of custom work on it to suit preferences. Bar is a little weak, can bend on heavy landings.

This feature helps ensure the rider will have control over their steering and how they absorb hard landings. The Eastern CFRP plastic pedals that come stock on this model also help give the rider the control needed to manoeuvre uncharted territory. The Eastern Thunderbird also has a Pinner seat, which makes it easier for the rider to change from sitting to standing positions. There are many quality features here, but the Eastern Thunderbird does not seem to offer what its price tag promises. There have not been many reviews of the Eastern Thunderbird, or of the Eastern BMXs in general.
