Bidding on ebay for one of them. Auction is up at 10:15. The other, I have time. Budget is capped at ~300. Thought about bikes direct and may still go that route. I thought I might get more bang for the buck on ebay or craigslist.
I don't have anything against the State. I actually like the bike. But I've read they're not the best bikes. As you can tell from my handle, this is not my area of expertise. Just looking for some direction.

ebay is fine but you seem to have fit questions that are only going to be answered by getting on the bike.
When you say you ride a 57-59, what frame is that or are those? Measurements are fickle. If you use the fit calculator to figure out what you need, and can get ebay sellers to give you measurements or if you can reliably get geometry from manufacturer web sites then you might get away with buying a bike unseen.
