State Bicycle Co. (United States) - Press Release: Introducing the 4130 All-Road: Meet the most versatile bike State Bicycle Co has ever built. We've blended all of our abilities to make one of the most capable and affordable bikes on the market for gravel, commuting, touring, and beyond. With options for speedy 700c or rugged 650b wheels, a capable 11-speed drivetrain and accessory mounts galore, the 4130 All-Road is built to become the bike you need it to be for whatever your riding demands.
We built the All-Road frame from 4130 Chromoly steel which is sturdy and durable, but also very compliant on the dirt. One will be quick to notice the fork and rear end both feature a multitude of mounting points, giving the rider endless possibilities as to rack, fender, bottle-cage, and cargo-carrying options. The bike’s geometry is tailored to be comfortable for long days in the saddle on and off the road.
Wheels and Tires:
The 4130 All-Road comes standard with a rider’s choice of tubeless-compatible 700c wheels with 38mm tires OR 650b with 1.9” tires. State chose the Panaracer Gravel King (a gold-standard in gravel/all-road tires) for both size options.
- The 700c wheelset features the 38c Panaracer Gravel King, best suited for riders wanting to venture out away from road and cross over to off-road / gravel use. Or those who simply have to deal with less-than-perfect road conditions. This option is recommended for riders planning to ride on the road while also venturing into smooth gravel roads and light single-track.
- The 650b wheelset offers a larger 1.9” Panaracer Gravel King SK tire is perfect for anyone looking for an option more suitable for lots of off-road use. This is a true “go-anywhere” tire.
BUT WHY PICK...when you can get both!? State Bicycle Co. has always had the motto Rider-First. To them, it means allowing each rider to select a bike that is perfect for their riding needs. When a rider orders their 4130 All-Road bike, they are able to choose 700c or 650b (at no cost difference) or get both for an extra $349.99. State makes it easy to go back and forth between each wheelset. Riders ordering BOTH get a 2nd set of fully-load wheels including wheels, rotors, cassettes, tires and tubes. With BOTH wheels included, State is nearly offering 2-bikes-in-1. Commute to work with the 700c wheelset Monday-Friday, and rip the trails on your 650b wheels on the weekends!
State’s Gone Geared (again):
We’ve developed a 1x11 All-Road drivetrain to power these machines. The crank is our narrow-wide 1x All-Road Crank (previously seen on the new Undefeated Road - Apex), with 42t chainring paired with an 11-42t cassette for 1:1 gearing capable of climbing the toughest grades. For the single-speed die-hards, the bike is also available in a Frame Set to build as your hard-core heart desires.
