dont worry bombers are gone! this bike has been sitting in my shed for the last few years, i never liked those bombers. i used this bike as my main bike from 92 till 05. the bombers were the final straw, used it for 6 monthes then brought a compleat new bike. i aways loved the bike untill then. i've had a full suss giant anthem for two years then i decided to go hard tail and have just got a carbon Sworks wich is sweet, going back to hardtail after a full suss made me think sod it lets go full ridgid again and bring the beast back from retirment but singlespeed for the new millenium! i'll keep you posted.

Close-up of the Beast of the East logo! The white-ish is actually bright yellow but washed out by the flash. Enjoy!

My Beast is a fun bike, but my EWR Original Woods is a faster bike with a similar high botom bracket and steeper angles.

Sure. There's a thread on that one too. Some stuff in there about the blue frame in front also.

Kaiser, you asked me a while mack wha tsize tire I'm using...The CSTs are 2.0s and I remember back in the college days with my original Beast using Panaracer Smokes (2.1? 2.2? Pretty wide anyway) and there was quite a bit of room. I have some Z-Max's that are 2.35 I think, and they would fit.
