State Bicycle Co’s Singlespeed Off-Road Division
ThunderGallery-17-Crop

First debuted at Interbike, State Bicycle Co’s new singlespeed off-road division is now available for pre-order with a mid-November delivery. Their affordable cross bikes are available with a Reynolds wheel upgrade – which is almost as much as the bike itself, or as frames to be built us to your specification. Blastin into the fat marketplace are two singlespeed fat bikes, one coming in under $500 with an admittedly fun coaster brake setup and another with disc brakes for under $700.

See the full State Bicycle Co Off-Road Division below.

The Tuscany Trail

This looks amazing! Count me in next year…

“What is Tuscany Trail? It’s an adventure, not a race, in other words an experience: an unusual, exciting and uncertain experience. A bikepacking experience. It’s unsupported: there’s a start and a GPS track, but nothing more. Everybody has to plan the course looking at their needs and attitudes or listening to what their body communicates. There’ll be who is challenging himself and who’s taking it easy, relishing the stunning view.

640 km (400 miles), with an elevation gain of 12000m (39000 feet), where half of them are on gravel roads and singletrack.

This is Tuscany Trail.”

Horse Cycles: 29’r Complete
Horse29r

It’s hard sometimes to visualize a bike’s potential from just a frame photo, which is probably why Thomas built up one of those 29’r framesets as a complete for a photo shoot. I still think this is one of the nicer 29’r production frames I’ve seen on the market and at that price, who can complain? Lovely. See more at the Horse Cycles Flickr and pricing at Horse Cycles.

State Bicycle Co’s New Off-Road Division

Keeping up with current demand, State Bicycle Co has launched a new off-road division, including a fatbike and singlspeed cross bike:

“Say hello to the newest and most tenacious members of the State Bicycle Co. family: The Off-Road Division. This premiere line of Cyclo-Cross Bicycles and Fat Bikes were consciously built to take you as far & wide as your spirit of adventure can go.

We took our Team Riders out to some of the most singular landforms of the West Coast and Southwest, Cyclo-Cross and Fat Bikes in tow, and sent them barreling into terrain that gave us genuine pause. Three states, eight locales, more than a few attempted daredevil stunts, and a broken arm later, we realized something: it doesn’t get much better than adventuring through the unbeaten path with your friends.”

More information to come from State.
