State Bicycle Undefeated Aluminum Track Bike

undefeatedannounce

Aluminum track bikes can be a real treat to ride, if not the most forgiving frames around. Even if your friend can beat you on his ’70s 10-speed conversion, aluminum track bikes just feel fast. I’ve been on one regularly for six years now, and still love cranking out the miles. State Bicycle Co has just announced the Undefeated, a 7005 aluminum aero track frame, with a seat cluster and seattube that looks a lot like the old Bianchi Pista Concept. Available complete as shown with a carbon track fork and SRAM Omnium cranks for $945, frame and fork for $549 or a frame only for $369.

    I hope the short description above was a parody of some sort cause just by reading the first sentence, it made no sense.
    “Aluminum track bikes can be a real treat to ride” <- Was this a sarcastic sentence?
    "if not the most forgiving frames around" <- I assume you've ridden in an alloy bike around town for so long that your anal and testicle regions have been beaten useless aka you no longer feel your ass and balls? I don't know about you but me having owned an alloy bike and ridden it in a busy city equates to having a Sybian constantly set on max up in your ass
    " Even if your friend can beat you on his ’70s 10-speed conversion, aluminum track bikes just feel fast" – I don't even want to comment on this, your just making fun of me now.

    If this was a joke, good job. If not, please re-write this, don't misinform people that alloy is the bike's next answer to forgiving frames. The only think its forgiving is your use of your testicles.

    Coolbeans. Just so I understand:
    1) Alloy is the quintessential cycling material that’s synonymous with smooth riding, forgiving and comfort (ie: treat ti ride).
    2) If my buddy on a converted 10 speed can beat me, then I should buy this because I’ll look cool while I’m eating dust.

    I knew that for some, bikes were very much for posing (regardless of chosen cycling discipline), but wow…I didn’t see the day where marketing was blatantly geared towards posing in general! It should be the start of a new cycling genre!

    This is the worst marketing I’ve ever read in my entire life.

    “Aluminum track bikes can be a real treat to ride, if not the most forgiving frames around. Even if your friend can beat you on his ’70s 10-speed conversion, aluminum track bikes just feel fast.”

    Sentence 1 – false
    Sentence 2 – embarassing

    The write up clearly says “not the most forgiving” as in, they are stiff as hell. I, along with many others, enjoy riding them. Aluminum track bikes feel fast, even if the bike doesn’t ultimately matter. Don’t worry, no matter how fast you think you are you really aren’t, someone on a bike shop throwaway out there is besting you.

    There’s no useful commentary here about the actual ride of the Undefeated frame because that means you’d actually have to ‘ride’ it. This just the usual snobbery, unclever sarcasm and lazy thinking of the “Ready, Fire, Aim” dim wits. So what we get is a general assumption that all aluminum bike frames are created equal or that aluminum alloy in general is an inferior material. Wrong, and wrong again. Aluminum is a hard ride, yes no question about it but what you get is lighter weight, efficient power transfer, and no flex which is important if you’re a strong 6’1″, 190 lbs. And yes a stiff ride is rough on the peritoneal area so why don’t you just man up or go buy golf clubs. Can we hear from someone who has some street time on the Undefeated for an ‘informed’ opinion.
