Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

Decide between state bicycle's undefeated and black label

I recently decide to buy a new bike and i want to buy a fixed gear bike. I found 2 bikes.

Undefeated from state bicycle:
[URL="https://www.statebicycle.com/collections/undefeated/products/undefeated-ii"]

Black label 2016 camo:
[URL="https://www.statebicycle.com/collections/black-label/products/6061-black-label-camo"]

The black label looks awesome but a friend told me the undefeated is for his price the best one ....and i dont know
Which one i should buy.
Can someone give me some advices?
Thanks

If you don't know the difference between the two, do you really know if the undefeated is the best one? Buy the one you like.

^ where's the fun in that when you have the internet to tell you what to do? deciding for yourself is over-rated

OP, any reason you're restricting yourself to state bikes? experience riding fixed gear?

Given the choice, I would gravitate toward the Undefeated because the other one has a stupid cockpit.

The undefeated is actually quite the underrated frameset.

I've ridden a friend's and I'd totally ride it. The geometry is very favorable imo.

I like the Undefeated II better, but mostly because I think the Black Label is ugly.

I like the paint on the Black Label, but that crank, and the hubs....the color.

Between those two the Undefeated II. The black label just looks goofy and for the price the components aren't all that great.

Spicy lobster and crab sushi burrito. How could that not be scrumptious?

I didn't know they started making drivetrains now? I knew them from suspensions and clothing, so having a Fox geared bike is kinda cool. Is it all single speed or do they do geared stuff and what levels of integration is Fox going to have with its other components?

It's hard for me to hate on State since they're local and do a lot for the community.

Would I ever buy one...probably not. For the price, there are a lot of other nice alternatives.

For $1000, you can buy just about anything...depends what you're really after.

Steel opens up your selection, but if you really want aluminum there are still tons of options.

If it was me, I'd pick up a banging Cinelli before I went with a State. (which is actually what I did)
