State Bicycle Co.’s 6061 Black Label All-Road Blends Gravel, Commuting, Touring and More

The 6061 Black Label All-Road blends all of State Bicycle Co.’s know-how when it comes to making a bike that’s capable of tackling gravel, commuting, touring and beyond, with options for speedy 700c or rugged 650b wheels, along with an 11-speed drivetrain and accessory mounts for bottles and fenders – readying it for all riding conditions.

With years of success designing its Black Label alloy fixed gear and road bikes, State Bicycle Co. acquired some serious chops over the years. This spring saw the launch of their 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 Bicycle Co. 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.

Wheels and Tires

The 6061 Black Label All-Road comes standard with a rider’s choice of tubeless-compatible 700c wheels with 38mm tires OR 650b with 47mm/1.9” tires.

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!

MONSTER Fork Option:

For riders looking to carry more water or gear for the most epic of adventures, State Bicycle Co. is now making a Monster Fork compatible with both the 6061 Black Label All-Road and steel 4130 All-Road bikes.

Available as a retrofit for the 4130 All-Road or as a $179.99 option on the 6061 Black Label All-Road, the Monster fork is ready to smash your next big ride
