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.
Our friends at State Bicycle are running a Killer (Mike) fundraiser!
State Bicycle Co. is giving away, this 1 of 2 (Killer Mike has the other one) – BMX Bike in order to support, raise funds, and awareness for Los Angeles Bicycle Academy. The bike was originally created for rap-legend, community leader and activist Killer Mike. We are asking participants to voluntarily donate $10 for Los Angeles Bicycle Academy on this product page, and they will be automatically entered to win the bike*. We will draw a person at random. The bicycle recipient will be announced Saturday, June 27th. No purchase necessary, see below for details.
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. LABA’s cycling team seeks to expand the capabilities of youth from communities where exposure and access to the sport of cycling and lifestyle are limited. LABA will support 9 youth cyclists on its roster for the 2020 season. The bicycle is a tool for liberation and freedom. It is positive for both mental and physical health. 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. No wonder they sold out already! You can sign up to be emailed when they’re back in stock at State.
It’s refreshing to see brands use these troubling times for some healthy and fun competition, all while benefiting key organizations. State Bicycle Co is running a social distancing challenge to see how far you can ride between now and April 5th in timed increments of 30, 60, or 100 minutes.
Here are the details:
-Riders choose their division we have 30/60/120 min options for Men and W/T/F and indoor and outdoor options.
-Riders can ride up to their allotted time but CAN NOT go over.
-State will have leaderboards to see who can ride the most DISTANCE over the set time.
-Registration is $5, everyone gets a patch who submits a ride, all profits 50/50 split between Aids Life Cycle and No Kid Hungry.
-State is encouraging people to ride solo only if they can not ride safely outdoors, as they have an indoor option.

There’s no reason you should have to spend a couple grand on your first mountain bike. Perhaps that was the motivation behind State Bicycle Co’s latest model, the Pulsar SS 29r MTB.

We reviewed the Thunderbird last ‘cross season and found it to be great “entry level fun” for people wanting to get into cyclocross riding or racing. These new models now have bigger clearances in the rear and will easily fit a 40mm tire. If the hot pink and black wasn’t your style, check out the newest Thunderbird design, clad in OD and burnt orange paint.
