Cool Ride

I got this bike because of its aesthetic appeal after searching thru all the single speed reviews. I like the simple appeal, devoid of neon and such. The best surprise was picking up the bike - it was very light. The gear ratio makes for real fast going on flats and only somewhat challenging hill climbs (I live in a flat area so my hills don't go on forever). So far, although not as comfortable as my hybrid bike, I still use it to commute over Dallas' rough roads because of how zippy and responsive it is. Exactly what I was looking for.

So far this bike is wonderful! It was easy to put together and she rides great! I haven't put too many miles on her yet, but so far I'm happy with my purchase. This bike is really light and is very easy for me to carry up and down the stairs to my apartment. I'm 5'3" and the 49cm frame is perfect. My previous bike was stolen and State has a really awesome program where they will give you a discount on a bike if you show a police report of your stolen bike. The retro style, quality, and price make this bike a great deal!

Great bike

Just started riding again and needed a short commuter bike so the Bernard 4130 Core-Line is perfect for that. Really looking forward to getting more time on it as the weather warms up and it is a great looking bike as well.

Climate Riot; the 4130 Bernard that's Fighting the Climate Crisis

There's an image of a 1965 race. It's in black and white. Some describe it as the greatest photo ever taken, which I disagree with. A Goodyear blimp looms in the background as a Shelby Daytona Coupe speeds by through the front. Even though the car is shrouded by dust, it's clearly American design perfection. Thick slick tires. Pure muscle. Powerful design.

Riot, my fixed 4130 Bernard, reminds me of this car, in that image. The dark brown Brooks saddle adds classic American baseball-style nostalgia. The chrome; so shiny. I was drinking a beer outside of a downtown bar looking at Riot U-locked to the bike rack in the distance, and people were stopping, talking about, and touching him. They smoothed over my saddle with their hands. They straightened the handlebars out. Knelt down and looked at the font on the Thickslick tires and the shine on the wheels. They stepped back, held their chin, and conversed about what I can only assume was the spectacular design and choice of colors on Riot. I felt proud. My wife, hangry as she gets sometimes, asked, "what the F*** gives them the right to just touch someone else's bike like that?". The privilege of obvious Caucasian decent and wealth, of course; but I turned the cheek and was happy that my property was being admired.

I've been commuting to work on a fixed-gear bicycle for about a year now. Ever since I got serious about fighting the #climatecrisis. Follow me on Strava—Early Bird of Durham NC. My previous bike, Black Maybelline, was struck by a car and her frame was bent. I acquired Riot with the compensation. Riding to work is a pleasure. I go to sleep with tomorrow's coffee and commute in mind. Often there are cyclists with pricey geared bikes with all the cycling accessories that try to race me. I've beat everyone that's challenged me whilst on Riot. The gear ratio makes it look effortless and the handling makes it so fun.

My head has definitely gotten bigger since I got this bike. I should really reel it back in.

super solid build

I have been riding fixed/track bikes for about 12 years now, mostly Bianchi offerings, so I was used to that geometry and feel. I do a lot of city riding, so when I first started looking for a bike to replace my Bianchi (stolen, unfortunately), two things were on my mind: solid components and a specific price point (around $500.00). Initially I was looking at State's Core Line, but I felt that while the bikes looked good, the components weren't quite what I wanted. I went a tier up in State's line and the Bernard immediately caught my eye. classic and unobtrusive looks, geometry that I felt might be a hair more relaxed than my previous bikes, and a solid build... I planned on swapping out some stuff upon arrival (added Brooks saddle, much better tires, Nitto riser bars, and much better touring pedals)... so far, the bike is incredible, I am overjoyed at how it rides! it is a more upright ride than my Bianchis, and it is remarkable how little fatigue I experience as opposed to my more 'track' oriented configurations. I paid about 300 less than my other bikes for what I would consider a comparable build quality (some details I actually consider to be better/more suited to my riding style). if you are looking for a quality build and solid performance step up a bit from the Core line and go with the 4130 series.

Customization and customer services are off the charts

I've been with my Frankenstein of a bike for the longest time, and eventually I decided to just buy a new one. Most websites or seller that I looked into doesn't offer that much variety in their bike selections, and usually the ones that does offer more selection have terrible reviews. State allowed me to choose the frameset from Matte Black 6 onto a Bernard look, which is amazing on top of their already wide range of customization at the time of purchase. Rather than buy a bike then having to change out the handlebar later on, I was able to have the customized bike right from the get-go.
