    Eastern DJ-4 questions

    Anyone riding one of these? If so speak up and post pictures.

    I'm looking into them with plans to be single speed, rear v brake only but I'm wondering if a Z1 will work with the integrated headset.

    I can't find the weight on these anywhere as well!
    Have fun.

    the fork will work with int headset. the only problem you may have is the fork crown hitting the downtube trying to do bar spins. as for weight,, looking at it, and the fact that its reynolds tubing, my guess is high 5's very low 6's...

    That's what I mean, I'll be spinning but there isn't a better fork out there than a lowered Z1
    Have fun.

    you should have no clearance problems... Worst one is either a Fox, or RS Pike for dt clearance.

    I'm surprised you guys/girls? haven't had much luck w/ Eastern's email.... too bad...

    NotQuiteJdm, are you an import or what?

    I know brad had a slammed '05 on his first street fighter. I don't know if he sold the '06 one.
