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.
This bike is so sick
The black label is a great looking bike that turns heads everywhere I ride it. Everyone I talked to a state was extremely helpful I highly recommend state bikes
I’ve had a handful of used/hand me down bike in my day. Finally purchased my own as a intermediate cyclist and I’m very happy with my purchase. Quick and straightforward setup, parts all look and feel high quality. I am confident in my ride.
Awesome customer service
Kick ass bike
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.
6061 Black Label v2 - Matte Black
Overall the bicycle was well packaged and the shipping was really quick. Great looking bike and quality components. The only reason I'm giving it a four star is because the bike didn't come with bar tape! I can't wait to take it out for a zip in the summer. #bikegang
I've had this bike for a couple weeks now and have taken it out a half dozen or so times now, and overall am really pleased with my purchase.
Very comfortable frame
A couple spokes were damaged during shipping and need to be replaced
Pedals/clips are very cheap and need to be replaced
Tires are also very cheap and need to be replaced
Overall, I am very pleased with this bike and can really see myself putting a lot of miles on it, I just wish a few of the other items were of a little high quality
