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!

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!

Great book

I am really happy with my new 62cm State Black Label fixed gear. I am 6'6" and it fits me great, super fast and aigle. Upgraded from my previous 62cm State Contender State bicycle. I would definitely recommend this bike. Great Value

Great Bike, Great Company

I was surprised when I unboxed the bike and saw that it was largely assembled and that I could easily complete the assembly myself (I had been expecting to pay another $75 or so to have it put together by a local bike mechanic). The bike itself has a really clean fit and finish, it’s beautiful, light, ready to ride after the minimal assembly and fun to ride. After dealing with the State Bicycle Co. by phone and buying the 6061 Black Label v2 sight unseen, I can tell they are a thoughtful, responsible, solid company and I am really enjoying their product.

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.

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.

Great ride...

I purchased this Black Label to replace the Undefeated I’ve been on for the past few years. I went up a size to a 57 and am glad I did, the taller headtube allows me to stay in the drops for most of my ride and the longer wheelbase helps smooth out some of the rougher roads. Geometry is great, fast turn in but not twitchy and no toe overlap on my size 46.5s. I balanced the wheel tension when I first got this bike and after 700 miles they’re perfectly true. Lastly, finally a good fixed gear with bottle bosses, my weekend rides are 70+ miles and having one less bottle in my jersey pockets makes me happy. Great ride and customer service from State Bike.

Customize your build

The 6061 Black Label Series is the perfect tool for navigating the streets. Built on an agile and ultra-light, double-butted 6061 Aluminum frame with a tapered head tube and featuring an Essor USA full carbon fork, the Black Label Series is a stiff and responsive ride.

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. With the Black Label Series, you have the option to choose either stylish, wide riser bars or compact drop bars that provide comfort and quick transitions between hand positions.
