    Oh, I'm not actually. Just saw it today and thought sharing would be a means to make my first post. Do I need to be affiliated to share? Not sure on all the forum rules yet.

    Yeah, I saw their video clip that Dirt Rag posted on FB. Always nice to see another value priced SS in the marketplace. It appears that Nashbar isn't making anymore of them. I'm wondering if it's any better than the $300 cheaper Gravity.

    EBB is an interesting choice at this price point.

    I particularly find this company's SS fat bikes interesting. Too bad they're sold out. They make a fat clunker.

    I thought this was interesting too. This is a slightly different kind of ebb than I've seen out there. Wondering if this set-screw style is better than the split-shell style. The concept seems like a good one.

    It costs more than a Mongoose?

    Wonder if State Bicycles have those "20% Off" days like Nashbar.

    Pretty sure I read there was slightly better hubs on the sus model. 44mm head tube is killer.

    Your a big guy IIRC, aren't their fatties a one size for all?

    I could be wrong, that's just what I remember. I initially looked them over, but passed. It seems like they have a good mission though, decent priced rides for those who have interest but not so much money.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I saw them at SingleSpeed Arizona about 10 days ago. It's a tough course and both the company riders and bikes were well suited to it. As I rode behind one of them on a extended dusty grind of a climb their bike was silent, an important consideration in my estimation

    I have no affiliation whatsoever to the company.

    No, you're right, I'm pretty big. I honestly don't know about sizing on them, the site I saw them on didn't have any size information or anything else, just some component specs and a big sold out thing where option selection usually goes to select sizes and purchase.

    Has anyone seen an actual ride review on this bike? The price point is attractive, but the reviews on State's steel SSCX cross bike are less than flattering. I don't want to end up with something that is essentially a more expensive BD bike.
