Great bike, even greater value. Just needs a few upgrades to be perfect

This bike is a steal for less than 300 bucks. Perfectly capable ride straight out the box for commuters and hobbyists. Pretty much all the core, expensive components punch way above their weight class for what you pay. I just tossed the free plastic pedals aside and threaded on some big aluminum Crank Bros platforms, tossed aside the generic seat for a Brooks Ceribum saddle, trimmed down the bars and bolted up some hub guards, aluminum BMX levers/bar ends/pegs for flatland tricks and light grinds. So I'm still at like $550 for the whole rig and I love it twice as much as my $1000 LeMond setup. The modified Pigeon looks way cooler too if that counts for anything...

Great bike, everything you’d want from a steel bike

Very impressed with the entire State Bike process. The shipping was much faster than I anticipated, the bike came without a scratch, easy to assemble and the price is on point. I put wider bars on and an 18 tooth on the back, (I live around hills, but want to ride flats too). The general componentry on the bike is awesome, can’t believe I got this for only $299, totally stoked.

Great Pigeon!

Fast delivery, arrived in immaculate condition. Light, fast, efficient, beautiful bike. Enjoying the ride every single time as much as I enjoy the looks of it. After 5 months and about 1,500 commuting miles no issues whatsoever.

Now, bringing this up for State's & prospective buyers' notice: brake tracks in rims appear black in photos and were delivered as such. After two weeks or so, some rain and some braking (never used the bike as a fixie), the black wore off and the tracks turned silver. Knowing about this before buying the bike wouldn't be a dealbreaker, just saying all customers deserve to know exactly what they're buying. And in my case it was a light grey/black Pigeon with nice red hubs which turned out having a touch of silver as well :)

Anyway, this incident cannot affect the overall great experience I've had so far, Pigeon Core-Line definitely and highly recommended!

This is a great bike.

I probably have low standards. This is the first time I've purchased a new bike that wasn't a Wal-mart or Academy special, and my last bike was a hand-me-down from my brother-in-law who is shorter than me. I had the seat on that thing set as high as it would go and my knees were still half bent at the end of each down stroke. Anyways, I probably have low standards.

When that other bike was stolen off my back porch (no thanks to my dog Sydney, the friendliest guard dog ever), I decided to actually give some thought to the kind of bike I wanted. I didn't want anything too expensive. I didn't want anything too complicated. And I didn't want something I would regret riding to work everyday.

This bike does all of that and more. It's a joy to ride. I feel good riding it, and for someone who hasn't done much riding, that's about the best thing I can ask for.

I guess my main complaint is that because I'm fat, anytime I'm riding against the wind I feel like the world is trying to kill me. But that's not really a complaint about the bike. So there you go.


Amazing bike for the price. Everything I need and easy to upgrade as well if I need to. Shipped fast. Will be purchasing more and more from them.

Pigeon core

Haven't been on a bike for around 12 years and wanted to get back into it. After reading the other reviews, it was an easy choice. What you get for the price is amazing. Really easy to put together. Switched the hub around for single speed as I don't think im anywhere near the stage to use the fixed gear but it's great to have the choice. Rides great! I would definitely recommend State to anyone. Keep up the awesome work!

Great service, great bike. Shipped to my address in Italy, best looking bike in Rome by far.

Great Bike for the price.

Now remember, this review is in light of the very low price of these bikes...These are great bikes that look incredible for the price.

Packaging - great.
Fit - Easy to assemble. Fits well. The only issue was the bar end plugs- they did not go all the way in.
Welds - really nice. Has water bottle mount.
Paint - Very nice - surprisingly good
Equipment - Chain has quick link. Flip flop hub with both cogs included (that is really nice). Brakes, drivetrain great. Usually brakes at this price point are not good. These are nice. Wheels look and feel really nice. Smooth. Saddle is OK. Stem and Seat post fit well. Pedals are usual, cheap but adequate.
Ride - Very smooth. I bought 4 bikes at 54 cm. I was worried they would be too small. My sons are 5-8 to 5-11 and they all fit well aside from TOE OVERLAP. You need to ride on the balls of your feet. Any position forward of that and you will hit your toe on the front wheel when you turn. Really only a problem at low speed (you do not turn sharp at high speed).
Delivery - fast.

Exactly what I needed in a bike

Simple, well built, looks great. Couldn’t be happier
