Black Goes Blue: State Bicycle Releases Limited Edition Typhoon Blue 6061 Black Label

State Bicycle Co., the mainstay of the fixed gear/single speed bike market are releasing an ultra-limited, 1 run Typhoon Blue colorway to the well-crafted 6061 Black Label line. And it’s limited in the truest sense of the word, once this batch is sold out it’ll be gone forever.

State Bicycle Co., the mainstay of the fixed gear/single speed bike market are releasing an ultra-limited, 1 run Typhoon Blue colorway to the well-crafted 6061 Black Label line. And it’s limited in the truest sense of the word, once this batch is sold out it’ll be gone forever.

The Black Label V2 6061 Aluminium double butted frame features a tapered headtube paired with a newly designed full-carbon fork from Essor, adding stiffness and responsiveness, for a quicker, lighter feel. The full build offers a complete component overhaul, which starts with a lighter wheelset with sealed bearing hubs and finishes with a fully CNC’d Track Crank & 48t Chain Ring with a versatile 144BCD, allowing owners of Black Label to mix and match their crank with top aftermarket chainrings.

Like the construction, the new Typhoon Blue paint is sublime. The build comes with a handlebar option of either oversized compact drop bars or wide mountain style riser bar, a flip-flop hub that makes it simple to switch between fixed gear and single speed variations. The V2 also includes water bottle mounts, a feature rarely seen on track bikes for those riders who find themselves on longer rides on the road.

(Christoph Bayer) SRAM AXS – 13 Good Reasons Why Electronic Components on Bikes Are the Future | The Slow Death of ‘Buy It For Life’

We see the bike media et. al. falling over themselves to encourage a public dependence on component electronics. And both ebikes and component electronics have an intrinsic designed obsolescence, by virtue of these systems having a limited number of battery cycles. There won’t be ‘vintage’ drivetrains in 20 years as none of the batteries will be usable. I have a birthday coming up, maybe I’m being overly nostalgic to consider this.
