Review
The Eastern Bikes Shovelhead comes with a full chromoly frameset like its cousins The Wolfdog and The Reaper. The specifications of the Shovelhead very closely follow the configurations of these bikes and in case you are planning to buy the Shovelhead, you might also want to explore these options.
The bike weighs around 25 pounds which is quite acceptable. It is extremely easy to handle the bike because of its light weight. Assembling the bike, however, is a bit tricky and if you have not done something like this before, it is best to take it to your local bike shop. The pedals as well as the saddle need to be upgraded in order to get the most out of the bike. The brakes of this bike fail to impress and lack the fire power.
Overall, the Shovelhead looks alright for its price although you need to consider the cost of upgrades. The performance it delivers is quite satisfactory. There is a host of bikes in this range offered by Eastern Bikes with similar configuration and it is highly recommended that you explore those options also before arriving at a decision.
