It's a bike

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

Great bike, questionable rubber

Out of the box the Black Label v2 is a beautiful looking bike. Clean paint job, low-key branding and unified design. Very impressed. The build was easy too. Everything needed was in the box and it was all carefully and thoughtfully packaged for shipping.

As other reviewers have noted, the stock tires are garbage, narrow and cheap. The tan sidewalls look great, but not even racers are riding 700x23c tires anymore. They really detract from the overall impression and are an immediate, necessary upgrade as nothing about them feels useful. Lots of other things can be upgraded when ordering, the tires should be an option too. Or just make a reasonably sized tire standard. Additionally, and this is a small quibble because most people will probably ride this bike without brakes, but if you're going to make brakes available, include cable guides on the frame. Having to tape or zip tie the rear cable to the frame ruins the aesthetic and again, detracts from the overall, finished impression.

Finally, the front wheel needed truing and tensioning. It had all types of hops in it and the spokes were incredibly loose. Not a problem if you're having a shop build it but because it's an online order, lots of people might choose to assemble the bike themselves and getting the wheels tensioned and true is a big ask.

First few ride impressions are positive once I put some decent tires on the wheels. The bike is comfortable, confident and nimble. Really enjoying it and happy with my purchase. Would definitely but again and recommend.

Can't go wrong

This is my second bike from State. The first was a Matte Black III. That one's been great, but my new Black Label v2 is much lighter and rides really smoothly. Love the Army Green too. I added a freewheel as I'm not much of a fixed rider. I swapped my bullhorns over. Just like the look better. If you are thinking about ordering, go ahead. Good company, good bike.

Keep being surprised at how much I love it.

I got this bike a while back, after drooling at the v1's for a couple years. Been riding to work, short commute, but hot as fuck here in Arizona.

Made a couple alterations; swapped the wide risers out for bullhorns, ride felt a little rough on my neck, flipped the stem, feels like a dream now; swapped pedals for wide flats, cause they're far more comfortable for my giant fucking feet; brakes lines were short for bullhorns, but they didn't offer bullhorns, so it's tough to hold that against them.

My commute just got a lot shorter, and I swapped from riding freewheel to fixed. Got a set of toe straps, pulled brakes off completely, and it's like falling in love with the bike all over again. It's snappy as hell to get up to speed, no frame flex, all energy goes to the wheels, and as 250 lbs dude, that matters. It's my favorite bike, hands down. Easy to maintain, easy to ride, easy on the fucking eyes. I'm in love with it, and I can't wait to take it to a state where I can ride it without a 3 liter hydration pack.

Photo is after bullhorns and pedals, before toestraps and fixed.

Awesome bike. Simple build. Packaged nicely. Fast bike. Good quality except for the water bottle cage I ordered was damaged. State quickly sent me another one free of charge. Awesome customer service. Last but minor pet peeve: the freewheel I ordered with the build is garbage, uneven freespin and sloppy cage interference. Other than that, super satisfied.

your dreams will come true

I just got this bike and have been whippin' around the streets of Grand Rapids, MI and I gotta tell ya, she handles like a dream. It's super light and fast, agile and responsive, and very sexy. Ever since buying this bike, I have gotten 12 girlfriends each week, made LOTS more money, and the instant I ride by a homeless person in the city, they become not homeless. I'm pretty sure all of this ties back to the bike, It changed my life, it could change yours too. Love State, love the bike, the price and service have been amazing. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go save more homeless people and cure all diseases known to man -all with my bike.

Updated and you can feel it!

Had a v1 Black Label taken out by a car crash and replaced it with this bike from insurance money. I have the Omnium Crank, FSA Compact Drop Bar, Brooks Cambium All-Weather Saddle, and Thickslick 25c's as upgrades, and also added some basic Tektro Drop Brake Levers and All-City Cable Housing Guides. For starters, love this bike absolutely. Its the favorite of my 4 bicycles, and my go-to commuter for work. You can actually feel the 1-1/2lbs weight difference from the v1, and the newer stock Arione style saddle is far better than the old standard. The geometry feels a little more relaxed, but every nuance of body movement is still translated through the bike making it more comfortable and still responsive. Using the 48/16 gear ratio is perfect for my commute, letting me keep a comfy 20mph flat speed but still able to climb steep hills without getting out of the saddle. I used the supplied Wide-Bar for my old v1, and the brakes/grips/bar all feel solid. Only things I would improve from stock are having drop brake lever upgrade options, more sizes of FSA drop bar (I went aftermarket with a 44cm), have the older black cable guides come as standard or at least offer them as a purchase option or the Jagwire Adhesive Clip mounts, and make the Thickslicks the standard tire. I rode for a long time on my v1 with the standard 23c's, and the Thickslicks make a massive difference. Overall, extremely satisfied and looking forward to thousands of miles on this beauty.
