State Bicycle Co. (United States) - State Bicycle Co introduces their first geared road bike, the 4130 Road. Paying homage to the look of classic road bikes with the clean lines and colorways State is known for the 4130 Road adds in massive versatility for all kinds of drop-bar riders with a simple-yet-effective 8-speed drivetrain and clearance for 25-32mm wide tires.
Built on a lightweight double-butted Chromoly steel frame, the 4130 Road is perfectly equipped for commuters, with room for fenders over the stock 25mm tires and fittings for luggage racks both front and rear. The 8-speed rear drivetrain shifts using a downtube lever, a choice that makes an immediate callback to vintage bikes yet also makes for a low-maintenance option thanks to the durable nature of the shifting system. Topping off the drivetrain is the CNC-machined crankset with a single chainring in a classic natural aluminum finish.
More vintage-inspired flair comes from the brake levers, hubs, pad holders and saddle, all of which were considered for both performance and aesthetics, making the 4130 Road both lightweight and visually appealing.
The lightweight wheels are capable of handling up to 35mm-wide tires, a width more commonly seen on gravel and cyclocross bikes. This is a nod to the way drop-bar bikes are being ridden these days. With the 4130 Road, State Bicycle Co. provides an exceptionally affordable and versatile platform for riders who love their clean, timeless aesthetic but need the gears to conquer the hills.
