Here’s Karl Poynter’s section from the Eastern video “Death of Fun” part. The more and more I see a freecoaster the more and more I want one. That’s until I think about how much of a pain in the ass they are to maintain. When somebody makes one that doesn’t blow up once a week I will get one, haha. Until then, enjoy this spectacle of pure awesomeness.
All right, this one I have no idea about. I knew Karl left Shadow to ride for a top secret brand that nobody could find out about, and now yesterday they dropped his welcome edit above, and their website, EzraBMX.com.
I usually have an idea of who’s behind a brand, but I have no idea. I’m going out on a limb and saying that Karl is at least part owner of this one. I guess we’ll have to wait and find out more. Until then, here’s a press release Karl dropped…
“Some of you may have been wondering what the story is with EZRA.
EZRA’s mission is to focus on high-quality, aesthetically pleasing parts that truly represent what BMX is about. I’m very proud to be part of the EZRA brand. I’m also pleased to announce that testing has been underway on an all new design for my signature free-coaster hub. So far, it’s been on point with its performance and longevity. This new design is something I’m really confident in and we’re working hard to get it released as soon as possible. Be on the lookout for details and photos coming soon.
Thanks for checking out ezra. We have plenty more to come.” – Karl Poynter
“Karl Poynter came out to North Carolina to visit Zach Rogers. Josh Perry met up with them for a day in Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham, which is known as The Triangle to film this video. Good times mixed with good moves.” – Leigh Ramsdell / Eastern

“Last summer we had the Eastern Pro Team come out to shoot photos for the 2011 Eastern Bikes catalog. A few of the Am, Vet and Test team were also on hand to take part in the action. I filmed the weekend events but much to my dismay, I misplaced the SD card that I shot everything on. Just a few weeks ago it resurfaced and here is the video. Enjoy.” – Eastern
