Review
The Griffin by Eastern Bikes is an entry level BMX variant which is appropriate for exploring the BMX category. This bike comes with a steel frame and fork which make the bike quite strong. It weighs around 26 pounds which is not great but still acceptable for a BMX bike. This bike does not ship fully assembled although assembly is quite easy and straight forward. However, in case you have not done something like this before and do not feel confident, take it to your local bike shop to have it set up and get going.
The Griffin by Eastern Bikes can be used for hitting the skate park or for off-road rides. The bike fairs out equally well on both the occasions. This bike is aimed at beginners who are looking for a bicycle to explore the BMX category. There are some of the components of this bike which will require upgrading upon purchase. Take the brake for example. This one comes with no front brake and a rear U brake which is frail and quite lacklustre. The pedals are pretty flimsy and the seat is not at all comfortable.
While purchasing this bike, you will have to consider not only its tagged price, but also the cost of upgrades. However, the bike delivers on its promises and performance of this one is quite satisfactory. The components, apart from the ones mentioned above, are also quite standard. Overall, the bike looks quite decent for its price and if you want a solid and reliable bike to get started on the BMX path, this one can be a good choice.
