Great First Fixed Gear

I bought this bike so I could commute around my city and it has been great so far. Really smooth and a comfortable ride, it handles really well and the brakes are very responsive.

Great website and customer service

Awesome user interface even though I ordered the wrong bike. The chat function made my exchange stress free. Thank you all!

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.

'State Bicycle' Black Cap

Great wheelset for the $

Love this bike!

Shipping was fast and the bike is excellent, took it for it's first ride the other day and absolutely loved it. I also love the matte black, looks great and rides great!

Front brake

Picked up a front brake since when I got the bike second hand it didn’t come with one. I asked questions over email and phone and great customer service. Brake is perfect and didn’t cost much , works fantastic!

Best carbon upgrade!

I Bought this fork to upgrade my Pigeon grey core-line. It dramatically improved the dampening in the front end that used to make my hands sore and the aluminum steerer tube and drop outs make it easy to install and adjust. I like the fact that I don't have to worry with a torque wrench or hold my breath and pray that I don't hear the carbon "pop" when tightening down the front wheel after maintenance. Weight off your shoulders and piece of mind for sure. Also, a huge perk is you can fit 32c tires in this bad boy! Panaracer Gravel kings are a great addition to this for you guys that want to ride gravel/tacklocross and not just commute. Great fork, smooth ride, and amazing price. Top notch job guys!

Vans x Cult Flangeless Bike Grips

The bike that started it all

I bought this bike because I wanted something solid and reliable for a decent price. What I go was way more than I could have imagined! I have owned this bike for a year now and have over 3,400 miles on it. From commuting, to workout rides, to doing my first century. If you are looking at getting into single speed/fixed riding or just want a solid set up to get you back and forth, this monster will do it with a smile on its face for a price that fits with ANY BUDGET! I can't say enough about how much I love this thing. You will not be sorry, the only regret you will have is that you didn't buy two. ***I have updated the front fork, wheels, and cranks over the past year, but don't let that be a deterrent. Those upgrades were WANTS, not NEEDS***

Cool bike

Fun to ride. Impressive quality for the price.

beautiful florida bike

I was looking for a single speed bicycle that I could use when visiting our new home in florida. I purchased a beautiful blue and white model online. It was delivered and I rode it all over town with no issues. i'm looking forward to the same dependability every time I visit.

Just what I needed

My other brakes had completely worn down and the cables were stretched out, but this saved the day! Took 10 minutes to install and I was ready to roll. Works perfectly!

Great customer service

The bottom bracket went out on my bike and by the time I sent in the warranty information, the one year had passed. State was generous enough to replace it, despite it technically being out of warranty. Thanks state.

Get shreddy

Gravel, asphalt, single track...the State Bicycle Company Thunderbird absolutely shreds it all! This bike is a great price with extremely solid components. I went with the 58cm frame and it weighed almost 23 lbs out of the box. The bits that come on it are great for everyday rides but yeah a little heavy for racing. So I threw on some carbon wheels, carbon seat, and a new sick handlebar/stem combo and it’s down to a very respectible 20ish lbs. I’ve also been very pleased to find that a set of 27.5 wheels with 1.75” Specialized Sawtooth tires adds tons of volume for the flowy single track. Get one before they’re gone!

Not too shabby for the price

Using this periodically as we live in the cold here in Canada. I’ve had these installed for a couple of weeks and they seem like a pretty great value.

Quality parts

The parts arrived in a timely manner and they where the quality I was expecting. Spoke with customer service and they were courteous and helpful.

Great Purchase

I've been riding with this light a few weeks now and am very impressed. Very bright and does a great job of illuminating New Orleans pot holes (who are we kidding, caverns) and holds a good charge. Would definitely recommend. Cheers.

perfect

amazing deal

Bell Draft Helmet - Black

Oh sweet sweet mystery

Just received my mystery bib and I couldn’t be happier. I am 185cm, went with size M and it fits like a glove, super comfy and the quality fit his price is simply put I.n.s.a.n.e and out of this world.

Actually, I am planning to get a second one, get yourself one and then...get another one

Bike is amazing

Amazing bike. Fast shipping. Love my Single Speed state bike!!!
