    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.


    Talk about a sweet bike, I actually got a compliment on it just walking out my door!
    Well packaged and arrived quickly, super easy to assemble. All the parts are so much better then you would expect for a bike this price. Can still see the machined lines on the cranks which is pretty cool!

    Vans grips didn’t come in the box, contacted state, and no lie within 30min they had shipped me a pair. Talk about some wicked customer service!

    Awesome as always

    Purchased a couple of bikes. Awesome quality. Super quick shipping.

    Awesome Bike!!

    This bike is amazing, it is super light and sturdy. It is very responsive and the matte black looks very aggressive around the city!!

    Easy to order. Quick delivery. Well packaged. Easy assembly. Quality build. Compact drop bars are really impractical -- too small/toy-like.

    Great so far

    Have had this bike for a couple months now, and still love it. Feels very stiff and snappy, and the lightness really comes through on hills. Gumwall tires look great, though they already have threads showing through on some patches.


    I bought a frame set!!

    Awesome bike!

    Have only had a few days riding so far due to the distance it has travelled, getting it through customs and finding the time to get it professionally assembled however I am loving it so far! Looks set to be my primary mode of transport for the next few years.

    best and fast service

    thumb up

    4.75 stars...

    I love the bike. It's snappy. The gear ratio works out well for my commute and works surprisingly well up some decent climbs. I have yet to have to walk it. The bike was packaged nicely with no dings or scratches when it arrived. The only 2 minor complaints that I have are 1) I opted for drop bars and the brake levers supplied do not fit on the bars in a safe/usable position (clamp too small). I had to order a lever with a 31.8 mm clamp to get it further inboard towards the stem. 2) I was told that the bike will accomodate up to 32c tires so I mounted some nice all-weather 28c tires but the rear did not clear the rear brake mount with the supplied chain. An easy $15 dollar fix for a new chain. Those are minor complaints in my opinion but overall the bike is wonderful. I have received many compliments and I absolutely love riding it. Matter of fact, I already put my geared bikes away for the winter. Thanks State!
