It's a bike

I ordered a bike. It arrived. I ride it. Get one or don't, nobody cares.

4.75 stars...

I love the bike. It's snappy. The gear ratio works out well for my commute and works surprisingly well up some decent climbs. I have yet to have to walk it. The bike was packaged nicely with no dings or scratches when it arrived. The only 2 minor complaints that I have are 1) I opted for drop bars and the brake levers supplied do not fit on the bars in a safe/usable position (clamp too small). I had to order a lever with a 31.8 mm clamp to get it further inboard towards the stem. 2) I was told that the bike will accomodate up to 32c tires so I mounted some nice all-weather 28c tires but the rear did not clear the rear brake mount with the supplied chain. An easy $15 dollar fix for a new chain. Those are minor complaints in my opinion but overall the bike is wonderful. I have received many compliments and I absolutely love riding it. Matter of fact, I already put my geared bikes away for the winter. Thanks State!

Perfect

This is the first fixed gear I have ever owned and I can say with confidence that it has become on of my favorite cycling styles. Not only is this bike responsive and rigid, but its stock components are tough as nails. I got hit by a cop cruiser while riding that bike and flew into a tree, the bike was totally fine. Not even a scratch . Super happy with it. If you’re reading this review to judge whether or not you want to buy one for yourself, scroll back up to the top of the page and hit “buy now”. Its worth it. You won’t regret.

Shout outs to SBC for keeping the single speed and fixed gear game strong!!! Amazing crew and great service picking this up at the warehouse. This bike is so slick and buttery. Very simple in nature yet so precise of a machine. Got me out in the streets trying out for MASH PHX!!!

Love this bike!

I just rolled over 100 miles on this bike. I really enjoy it. Here's some thoughts:

1. The lightweight frame is really nice, and much faster than my older, faster bike.
2. All the colors are great, imo. I like the raw Aluminum. It reminds me of the Silver Surfer. It's a very low key looking frame, and I have been asked what it was a few times by people who liked the aesthetic.
3. It's odd that State splits the reviews for this bike up by color. I can't imagine the color has much effect on the performance. That said, I don't think they have made a colorway for this frame that didn't look amazing.
4. I am 6'4" and got a 62cm frame. It fits perfectly.

INSTANT UPGRADE!

Riding in similar weather conditions I’m averaging about 1mph faster average than my 24lb rhymes with introspect single-speed bike. It’s an instant upgrade. I was skeptical at first because I read that aluminum frame bikes ride more harsh than steel but rest assured this bike takes those worries away. No more sore butt and numb nuts, this bike absorbs shock and vibrations better than my steel bike. Comfort is very important to me because where I ride only about half the route is smooth. It also looks amazing

Just buy it!

Sweet bike for bombing the streets or the track! I have read reviews and rode other bikes while trying to narrow down my decision. I chose the black label and have no regrets. Nice stiff bike with excellent power transfer. Always getting compliments and questions about riding fixed. Buy the bike and ride with momentum!

6061 Black Label v2 Raw is the ONE !!!

My black and white Undefeated 2nd gen was taken from me on Labor Day weekend....never experienced that feeling in my life. I was seriously distraught.I ordered the 6061 because the new Undefeated crank assembly did not appeal to me; bring back Omnium or how about Sugino75 ?!?!! In November i picked up my 6061 Raw from the State Rideshop in Tempe and I was ecstatic. It is a fantastic machine !!!Thank you SBC for a great ride and kudos to Ryan and Trevor at the State Rideshop !!! Enjoy Life....Be Well !!!

Such a good friend

I have had the bike for 1,5 year and I can't complain, it's snappy, lightweight and fast. The first and the biggest test so far was a 3000 km long bike tour and the bike did well without any big issues. I even fitted 32 mm tires in the frame (it was tight but still ok). The default saddle doesn't have to do for everyone (including me) but it's just a matter of preference. After riding almost 8000 km I had to get a new bottom bracket (the original one was creaking) and also I had to get chain tensionerers as the rear hub loosened somehow and started to rotate even when tightened (I guess that was the problem, I don't know that much about servicing bikes and naming the problems). Anyhow, this bike is such a good friend! Nowadays, I mostly use it for commuting and it still so much fun.

The Black Label Series complete builds are available in a wide range of colors, including ultra-limited single production-run colorways and are stacked deep with premier parts and components. The CNC’d crank set is lightweight but rigid, featuring a 144 BCD that allows for a wide variety of chainring options. A set of mid-profile wheels equipped with low-flange, sealed hubs are durable enough to take a beating on the city streets, but light enough for competition or endurance rides.
