Bottom line

The ‘State Bicycle Co. 6061 Black Label All Road’ is a lot of name for a lot of bike at a reasonable price. This aluminum-framed bike is sold with wheels in 700c or 650b sizes… or you can order both. While the 6061 Black Label All Road’s frame will accommodate wide tires in both sizes (up to 700 x 45c or 650b x 2.2”), having both wheelsets allows owners to switch between a larger-wheeled road-mode of the bike and a singletrack-capable off-road setup. Owners and reviewers enjoyed riding it on all surfaces. State makes most of the 6061 Black Label All Road’s components in-house, which keeps the bike’s price to an affordable minimum. While hydraulic brakes would deliver more power and another saddle would prove more comfortable on longer rides, criticisms were minimal. It’s a lightweight, low-cost, fast, agile and good-looking gravel bike in two subtle colorways. A good option for riders looking for their first gravel bike or something that will also cover road rides and commutes.
