My 2nd one, LOVE IT

After my wife saw and rode my core line Perplexing Purple she had to have one as well. Thanks for making a top of the line product and keeping it in budget 👍❤🚲.

Perplexing Purple 55

Excellent riding bicycle. The accents on the rear drop outs are lovely. The frameset is light. I built mine up with SRAM Apex brakes, Velocity Quill Wheels, Gatorskins, Black Label stem and bars, and a Brooks B-17 saddle.

Very very nice!

I purchased this frame to replace a core line frame that I've had for almost 10yrs. It was my commuter/do everything bike, and it was ridden almost every day except when thunderstorms were heavy, there was heavy snow, or it was below -18C. So when the frame cracked, why wouldn't I replace it with the next iteration. I wasn't a psycho for maintenance, but I do bolt check, and do basic maintenance at least one a month, and I always did a full tear-down every spring to rid the bike of winter crud and salt. I expect to do the same for this frame.

So far it has been excellent. The build - technically a tear down of the old frame and the buildup of the new frame - took < 1 hour. Very smooth assembly with no issues. The frame feels springier than the old one, and I really dig that. It kind of reminds me of the feel of my old 853 Reynolds mountain bikes. Very predictable and very comfortable.

I look forward to the next purchase in 10 years. Until then, keep it up!

Awesomeness

The welds. The paintjob. And the geometry are all spot on.

Great Value frameset

As a part time bike shop employee I see a lot of bikes. You would have to look hard to find a nicer sub 200 dollar frameset. Beautiful paint, nice fit and finish. Over all incredible value. Just a few more details and the build will be complete.

Sokol Frame

The product is awesome, solid frame, and it’s a nice color! The service is what I’m really unhappy about, I’m told that I would receive it on a specific date, I took off of work because packages is not safe to be left on door step in my area but my order wasn’t processed to begin with, I had to email the company several times and they said someone dropped the ball on this order and didn’t fill it. I waited over 2 weeks to receive the product.

Quick customer service

The frame I ordered was not the frame I received. However customer service was quick to answer any questions ready to make an exchange or refund. Turns out they didn’t have the correct frame color in stock in the size i needed so I told them I will just go ahead and keep the frame I received since it was the correct size. Overall I am very happy with my build and quality of frame and fork from state bike. Aside from the mixup everything about this company is great. Will be purchasing from again in the near future.
