The Eastern Growler (2011) is a BMX bike built for expert riders. This is similar to the Eastern Shovelhead (2011), but has a shorter frame, Eastern Fuquay Flyer grips, and Eastern Fuquay Flyer tires to match. The tires and the Semi U-shaped double wall alloy rim optimize this bike for speed a bit more than the Shovelhead. Updates to the 2011 model include a hydro formed down tube with an integrated gusset in the frame. Eastern crown pedals are now used, and the seat is a one-piece padded kevlar alloy that has the seatpost attached. An Eastern Low Boy seat clamp is now used, and the sprocket has been switched to an Eastern Phorcys 25T 6061 alloy. The last update is the brake lever, which has been switched to an Eastern 6061 forged lever with a hinged clamp.
