State Bicycle Company – Fall 2019 Collection

If you are in the market for a fun city bike that doesn’t cost a lot and is low maintenance, the State Bicycle Company should be on your list.

State Bicycle Company

For the past decade, State Bicycle Co. has provided riders with visually appealing bikes with a value that can’t be found anywhere else in the industry.

State started with the 4130 and has continued to build upon the quality throughout the years, the endless pursuit to offer the best bike one can find for under $500.

State Bicycle 4130 Line

State Bicycle Steel Line

The 4130 line is designed to meet the basic needs of getting around town, to-and-from class, and the casual weekend ride. The three new bikes truly reflect the brand of State Bicycles, by using colorways that pop for a classic look that will draw attention without leaving your wallet thin. The 4130 steel frame keeps the bike more than durable enough for the everyday rider for years on end. Riders will notice the new headtube and down tube graphics that accentuate each frame. The 4130 Riser Bar option will now come stock with Vans Grips at no-additional cost. State has modified the diecast dropouts to now accommodate a rear rack, as well as the frame too for internal cable routing. 

The Sokol, Army and Perplexing Purple are built with advanced geometry, next-level design, and flexibility to customize from top to bottom. Choose from the traditional 40m deep-v wheels or the new “lo-pro” wheelset for a lighter and more slimmed-down look. Easily transition from fixed gear to single speed with the flip-flop hub. Includes front and rear brakes for easy control and gum-wall tires for that classic look.
