Re: 2006 Eastern Grim Reaper

Most of the bikes in Eastern's 2007 lineup will have those cutouts.

Ratboy is the sh*t.
It's good to see someone backing lesser known talent, especially in this world of X Games super fans. 

Seriously, if you guys haven't seen this kid ride, check out this link.  Ratboy pulls off lines you think are only possible in video games.

Sk8b0ard, he rides a Standard, a 250 TRLS I believe.

Re: 2006 Eastern Grim Reaper

hey210, good call on Martinez. Kid has a ridiculous amount of bike control.  His sections in the Square One videos are insane as well.  Check them out if you haven't already.   

Skinnygmg, last I heard, Ratboy is still riding a Standard and getting flow from Ecko Clothing.  I haven't seen much from him lately to be honest with you, but he's probably still killin' it at the wedge. Check out SOMBRA and other Ells Bell's Inceptions videos as well as the old Standard Bykes videos for more footage of the Rat.

Here's another video from my favorites list, featuring the Animal team doing what they do best.

Enjoy.

Re: 2006 Eastern Grim Reaper

dwp138, thanks for the update.  I could have sworn that John was getting flow from Ecko at one point.  Every time I saw him, whether in a magazine, video, whatever, he'd be decked out from head to toe in Ecko gear.  I'll have to find his interview in RideBMX.

Real shame he's not riding anymore.  One of the most innovative riders out.
