The Eastern Shovelhead (2011) is an expert level BMX. This is similar to the Eastern Growler (2011), but has a different frame design and tires built to support tricks and street riding. The tires have been switched to Eastern Curb Monkey 20 inch tires that have a deep tread built for grip, and the rims have been switched to straight double wall alloys to avoid curb scraping. Eastern Wiz grips are now used as well. Updates to the Eastern Shovelhead from last year's model include the use of a hydro formed downtube with an integrated gusset, and a one-piece padded kevlar alloy seatpost combo. The seat clamp has also been changed to an Eastern Low Boy. New Eastern Crown pedals are now being used along with an Eastern Phorcys 25T sprocket built with 6061 steel alloy. The brake lever has also been updated to an Eastern 6061 forged lever with a hinged clamp.
