With $12,000 e-MTBs on the market, we asked ourselves, “what is the minimum you need in a bike to have fun?”… This is a wild ride, presented by Cjell Moné’s writing and Joshua Weinberg’s vision. Enjoy!
Swipe, BMX video, swipe, oh, nice curved top tube, super-sharp photo of a gorgeous frame sitting on OSB, @sklarbikes. Swipe, snowboard video, swipe, oh, (pulls phone away and back in toward the eye), brain knots and unknots, those seat stays are hard to comprehend @oddity_cycles.
Swipe, surf video, swipe…AD for an OG Klunker from State. Swipe, swipe, swipe, backswipe backswipe backswipe….$399?! Shut up. The lines on that thing aren’t half bad. Swipe, swipe… Backswipe backswipe… I can’t stop looking at this affordable klunker from State. It comes with Kenda chunky 27.5 x 2.2 tires, a 1 1/8 threadless fork, and pretty decent lines. Not a huge fan of the chrome riser bars, but hey those Vans grips…hmm hmmm. $399?!
Last year, State Bicycle Co’s team took off on their new 6061 All-Road bikes to ride from Flagstaff to the mighty Grand Canyon. Watch as their adventure unfolds in this video… #SouthWestIsBest
For State Bicycle’s latest episode of Riding Fixed, Up Mountains, With Pros, they take Alex Howes up a 3,600-foot climb on Colorado Highway 103 to Echo Lake.
Over the course of 32 miles up and down the mountain, listen in on a wide-ranging and inciteful interview including these tidbits:
-Would you guess that Alex is a science geek?
-Why does Lachlan Morton, the Australian Pro, have his brake levers reversed?
-Did you know that “undorkifying” is a word?
-Fashion commentary: US men versus Europeans. (Who believes cargo pants never go out of style?)
-Alex Howes quote of the day: “In every Pro, there’s an average Joe.”
These days with the pandemic causing bicycle production delays, you never know when you’re going to find bikes in stock. State Bicycle Co has just restocked their beloved Black Label All Road bike in a new, deep blue color. We’ve posted this one before but here’s a refresher…
For $400, this “Klunker” which is, in reality, a *Cruiser from State Bicycle Co has all the fixins for getting sideways on local fire roads and trails. This bike is built on a durable steel frame and fork with a 5-year warranty. It’s paired with a BMX stem and a 30” extra-wide V-bars with 7″ rise and Vans Grips. Head to State Bicycle Co for more.
*The disambiguation of Klunker refers to a bike like this with gears and brakes, while a Cruiser refers to a coaster brake bike.
For $899, the new limited edition State Bicycle Co and Bicycle Nomad (Erick Cedeño) 4130 All-Road look to bring a steel chassis gravel bike to the masses for not a lot of coin. Built on State’s 4130 All-Road platform, the customer can choose either a 700 or 650b wheelset or buy both wheelsets for an $349.99 upchage.

Last week we posted the new State Bicycle Co 6061 Black Label all road bike, including a mention of the new Monster Gravel Fork but we wanted to give that value-minded, full-carbon, super-capable fork some light of its own. These beefy forks fit a max recommended tire size of 45c x 700c or 2.2″ x 650b, have plenty of cargo bosses, fender mounts, use flat-mount disc brakes, and uses a 12mm thru-axle. Best of all, is the price. The Monster Gravel fork retails for $289. See more at State Bicycle Co.
With the ever-increasing popularity of gravel and all-road bikes, State Bicycle Co’s latest model is yet another geared bike, with a bit of versatility and affordability built-in.
6061 Black Label All-Road Frame
The Black Label All-Road frame is made from 6061 aluminum and uses thru-axles with 100/142 spacing, with plenty of tire clearance (700×45 or 650×50) opening the door for various wheel and tire size combinations.

We were not expecting this one! State Bicycle Co and The Notorious B.I.G. have released a limited edition capsule collection featuring a singlespeed bike, bar tape, t-shirt, cycling cap, and cycling kits. The whole project came out really great but this “Ready to Die” jersey takes the cake. See the entire collection at State.

About Los Angeles Bicycle Academy (LABA):
Los Angeles Bicycle Academy (LABA) is a youth education program, community bike shop and youth cycling team with a mission to empower, educate and develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills in boys and girls between the ages of 8-18. Within the context of a full-service bike shop we employ a comprehensive hands-on bicycle mechanics, sales and service curriculum including an ‘earn-a-bike’ program.

Through the ownership of a bicycle, possibilities are expanded, travel becomes easier, new places are discovered.
With two wheel options, 650b or 700c, flared dirt drops, a 1x drivetrain, disc brakes, and 450mm chainstays, the new 4130 All Road model from State Bicycle Co looks to be one of the most popular items in their lineup, especially with a price of only $799.
