State Bicycle builds many no-nonsense city riding fixies & single speeds, and every so often drops a limited edition. To get in the spirit of the season – and add a bit more visibility this fall – the latest special run their top Black Label alloy fixed gear bike comes in Zombie Green. And to outfit you in style, State has also reworked their premium Black Label clothing line to create simple, solid color basic kit that won’t break the bank.
State Bicycle limited edition Zombie Green Black Label v2 fixed gear
Getting ready for the month’s battles of the undead, State Bicycle Co continues their “One-Run” super-limited edition paint project with the new Zombie Green Black Label v2. Build it out with a flat bar or compact road drops, and ride it as a fixed gear or singlespeed with its flip-flop rear wheel. State has only made a single run of the super bright green frames, but you still get to pick & choose how you want to build it up for your style of riding.
State Zombie Green Black Label v2 – Tech Details
The Black Label v2 frame is built from double-butted 6061 aluminum tubing, with a tapered headtube & new full-carbon Essor fork.
The new urban track style frame also adds a set of bottle cage bosses for a bit more real world usability.
Complete builds include a lightweight mid-depth alloy wheelset, machined alloy track cranks with a 48t, 144BCD chainring, and pedals.
Cockpit is all house brand alloy but offers the choice to go for a wide riser bar with Vans grips or a compact dropbar, with both including full brake sets that obviously they like to remove for the fixie-vibe photos. A complete drop bar build in a 55cm size has a claimed weight of 8.05kg/17.75lb.
The Zombie Green Black Label v2 is available in six frame sizes (49-62cm). Get it as a frameset for $300 or complete bikes from $630 while the bright green lasts.
State Black Label cycling kit basics
The new riding gear is totally redesigned for the Black Label line with the idea of creating a high performance kit with a simple look that wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. The kit is made up of three pieces – a $80 jersey, $80 bib shorts & $13 socks.
Jersey & socks come in three mix & match colors – light gray, blue & black – while the shorts stick with classic black. Tech features include laser cut ventilation, premium grippers, a water-resistant zip rear pocket on the jersey.
Since getting the fit of new riding clothing online is always a little tricky, State is offering free exchanges including return shipping to make sure you get sizing perfect. Plus, if you but more than $50 of kit between now & Oct 10 you can save an extra $20 with code “newkitday20” at checkout.
