EASTERN BIKES INNOVATIONS

Over the years Eastern Bikes invented many products in BMX that other companies have adopted and still use today. Here are some of our proud innovations. Whether it's our famous Grim Reaper frame, Titanium products, or even our loose ball 9 tooth driver hub Eastern has always pushed the envelope on product design.

1992

Fed up with the quality of mass-market bikes Eastern Founder Mike Corley took matters into his own hands and built a frame he could trust. With a rear triangle cut from a Schwinn and a front-end fashioned from locally bought chromoly the
β€œFatty” was born.

1996

Eastern Bikes is incorporated by Jon Byers, Keith King and Mike Corley with a simple mission; to build the best bikes money can buy - a pretty arrogant undertaking for 3 guys with no money! Regardless, the team forged ahead building a reputation for quality and uncompromising strength.
