State’s Gone Geared (Again)

With years of success designing their Black Label alloy fixed gear and road bikes, State has some serious ability to design a winning alloy frame. Spring 2020 saw the launch of their massively successful 4130 All-Road bikes. The new 6061 Black-Label All Road combines all the best of their prior Black Label and All Road bikes. Starring a lightweight shaped 6061 Alloy frameset and matching carbon fork, the complete is built up with a mix of SRAM Apex and their house-brand components to maximize performance and value.

The Frame

State built the Black Label All-Road frame from 6061 aluminum for maximum performance, allowing the rider to get the most out of every pedal stroke. Aluminum is known for being both light and incredibly responsive to the rider, making it the ideal frame for covering ground quickly over any road surface. The bike’s geometry is tailored to be comfortable for long days in the saddle on and off the road. The frame uses thru-axles with 100/142 spacing, this along with massive tire clearance (700×45 or 650×50) gives the bike compatibility with a myriad of wheelset options/sizes. Two bottle mounts and fender mounts make it a long ride champ in all conditions, while internal main triangle cable routing keeps it looking clean.

BUT WHY PICK…when you can get both!? State Bicycle Co. has always had the motto Rider-First. To them, it means allowing each rider to select a bike that is perfect for their riding needs. When a rider orders their 6061 All-Road bike, they are able to choose 700c or 650b (at no cost difference) or get both for an extra $349.99.  State makes it easy to go back and forth between each wheelset. Riders ordering BOTH get a 2nd set of fully-loaded wheels including wheels, rotors, cassettes, tires and tubes. With BOTH wheels included, State is nearly offering 2-bikes-in-1. Commute to work with the 700c wheelset Monday-Friday, and rip the trails on your 650b wheels on the weekends!
