Pretty sure the Kink whip has a mid bb, so you will need a 19mm mid bottom bracket not a spanish.

What he is saying is that the kink has a mid bb.

The eastern uses a spanish,therefor you will need a spanish bb kit.

Description

The revolutionary Grim Reaper is refined and better than ever! This frame is engineered to save you weight while retaining the strength you need. Eastern cut out places in the frame where strength is not an issue, giving it a unique look. We've cut an EB logo in the headtube this year.

The Grim Reaper has an integrated seat clamp so you can get your seat even lower. Removable gyro tabs and internal headset are included. We've also added some plastic inserts for those worried about getting dirt in the frame.

The down tube is special butted tubing that Eastern made especially for our frames called Lightning Rod Tubing. The tubing is thicker at the head tube which makes an internal gusset and adds strength. As always, our frames have a lifetime warranty. We take pride in our innovation and quality.

one of dk14's suggestions were zoomer grips.
get them.
cherish them.
worship them.
you will NEVER find a more comfortable grip.
and they last FOREVER (mine are from when they VERY FIRST came out, i believe they were part of the first box that dans recieved, and still have some of the ribs left and only one small rip).
