Black Label 6061 - the most affordable premium fixie
If you are looking for an above-average fixie / track bike that is lightweight (approx. 9.5kg including brakes) and looks good, you've come to the right place. The mission of the fixie-enthusiastic founders of the US company is to produce high quality and aesthetically pleasing bikes at a great price. The Black Label series is the premium series of the fixie / track bike line from State Bicycle Co .
The frame stands out
6061 stands for the frame material - the 6061 alloy. The number is so prominently placed in the name because this material usually only appears on much more expensive bikes. The metal is characterized by its excellent rigidity and light weight. The frames are very nicely welded and powder-coated. No matter whether you ride fast or freewheel, single speed is fun. The frame is rounded off with a full carbon fork from Essor USA.
Fixed or single speed? Whatever, the material carries!
Like all State Bicycle Fixies, the Black Label has a flip-flop hub, thanks to which you can easily switch from freewheel to fixed-gear and back. Simply turn the rear wheel around and you have a single speed! Riding fixed gear puts more stress on your bike, making it especially worth the few extra bucks. It is not for nothing that these bikes are used in fixie (criterium) races, a real endurance test for the material.
Riding fixie or singlespeed remains a unique pleisure: Only you determine the power, the speed - no unnecessary technology gets in your way. The key to success lies in simplicity. Maintenance is also easier.
