12 reasons to buy

  • At 38.8lb, this is one of the lightest affordable e-bikes on the market.
  • The 6061 eBike Commuter is legit-stealthy, and hardly noticeable as an e-bike.
  • Five levels of pedal assist are available, to provide support in a range of situations.
  • Simple, single-speed gearing means less maintenance for owners.
  • Traditional commuter frame geometry results in comfort and visibility in traffic.
  • A tester reports a 20-mile range, riding at 20 mph on PAS level 5.
  • This rig comes in 3 sizes, to fit riders from 5'3" to 6'2" in height.
  • A 52t chainring and 16t cog result in a comfortable urban gearing ratio.
  • E-bike-specific 40c tires from Kenda, provide ample girth for tackling urban jounce.
  • A tester deems the 6061 eBike Commuter as highly affordable, at a low entry price.
  • The 36V 10Ah battery uses LG cells and takes only 3.5 hours to fully recharge.
  • Most components adhere to common standards, making them easily replaceable or upgradeable.

3 reasons not to buy

  • A tester reports the bike’s battery is not removable. It must be charged on the bike.
  • There is no throttle on the 6061 eBike. This is a pedal-assist-only machine.
  • No gears here dear. If you live in San Francisco, you might want to look elsewhere.

Bottom line

The 6061 eBike Commuter is a stealthy, single-speed, Class 1 rig for the low-key rider with moderate travel requirements. While it mightn’t make molehills of mountains, State Bicycle Co. says it can cover up to 100 miles of range on the lowest level of assist. Being miraculously light at 38.8 lb, the 6061 eBike Commuter can be easily carried upstairs to an apartment or office. Many manufacturers say their bikes ‘don’t even look like an e-bike’ but this one walks the talk. However, that svelte, integrated battery comes at a price. It can’t be removed for charging so you’ll need to park by an outlet. A simple and affordable option with easily-replaceable components.

REVIEW : State Bicycle Co. E-Bike

It weighs under 40lbs! No throttle and no gears but less can be more. You have to “plug the bike in” as opposed to removing the battery. On maximum pedal assist you’ll realistically achieve ~20 mi range at ~20 mph.
