Bottom line

The ‘State Bicycle Co. 6061 Black Label All Road’ is a lot of name for what aims to be a lot of bike, at a reasonable price. It's sold with wheels in 700c or 650b sizes… or you can order both, allowing you to switch between a larger-wheeled road-mode and a singletrack-capable off-road setup. In-house components keep the bike’s price affordable. For a number of testers, the bike's mechanical braking power was underwhelming. Handlebars are on the narrow side. More cargo and bottle mounts were desired. It’s a low-cost, fast, agile and good-looking gravel bike in two colors. It's suited to riders looking for a first gravel bike that will also cover road rides and commutes.

State Bicycle Company 6061 Black Label All-Road Review:
A Little Too Cheap

A nope sandwich. There are too many blatant cost-cutting decisions that haven’t just created a so-so-performing bike, but one that’s potentially dangerous, too. There are just too many glaring errors in the execution for us to recommend this to anyone.

State 6061 Black Label Review: The Best Gravel Bike Under $2,000

The bike can be raced. Throw on 650b wheels, and you can tackle singletrack trails. It’s arguably the best gravel bike under $2,000. The handlebars are narrow. Lacks mounts for longer distance rides. Limited sizes.

State Bicycle Co. 6061 Black Label All-Road: Getting Rolling

I’m really enjoying my rides on the 6061 Black Label All-Road. The bike had a very smooth, effortless feel under acceleration. The stock mechanical disc brakes are perhaps the most underwhelming aspect of this bike.

Ride Report: State Bicycle 6061 All Road

If you could only have ONE bike, the 6160 All-Road would be a great choice. Very responsive and simply a blast to ride. Lightning fast. A fun and comfortable road bike, too. Most extended bikepackers will want a lower gear ratio.
