State Bicycle Co. – The Undefeated // New!Posted: March 17, 2014 | Author: Aaron Smith | Filed under: New!, News, Photos, State Bicycle Co, Track | Comments Off on State Bicycle Co. – The Undefeated // New!
If you follow this blog with any sort of regularity, you’ve probably figured out we’re fans of Velodrome Racing (AKA – #TRACKNIGHT). So when State Bicycle Co. came out with the Undefeated last year, we were a little more than excited. A great Track Bike doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to take you from Cat 5 all the way to the top, but there are a few things that you need to get right.
For instance : The Crank. A 144BCD crankset is necessary and the SRAM Omnium is what a lot of Track Cranks aspire to and they come standard. The Frame should be stiff but still relatively light and the 7000 Series Alloy State’s sourced for this guy does the trick. The Carbon fork keeps the front end nice and still as you’re whipping around those banked turns at 30+ MPH. All in all, it’s got everything you need to start out in style. You’d be hard pressed to find a bike this well equipped for the Track at only $1,099, but that’s all State’s asking for this one.
If you’re signed up for the Intro to Track Racing class and want to show up correct, this might be a good place to start.
