I seem to be posting about State Bicycle Co a fair bit lately, this isn’t because they pay me to; it is simply because they keep producing interesting things. The latest instalment from State is their ‘Off Road Division‘, which consists of four models. This means you can now explore all types of terrain on a State bicycle.
State have released two cyclocross and two fatbikes. If you want to find out more about the entire range then visit their website! I am simply going to focus on my favourite of the bunch; the Thunderbird. The Thunderbird is a SSCX bike with a twist, you have the option of adding a rear derailleur. So you can either ride a 1×10 or 11 set up or keep it simple and clean as a single speed.
Equipped with carbon fork, Avid BB5 disc brakes and a 6061 Aluminium frame this really is a mean machine. Whether you are racing cyclocross, commuting or just going for a leisurely ride this could be the bike for you. The eccentric bottom bracket is a nice touch and the custom graphics by Johnny Hsu might not be to everyone’s taste but honestly I really dig them! It also ties in nicely with their latest Rider Signature Series Jersey by team rider Russ LaFleur, I like what you did there guys!
I have no idea how it rides, but if States’ previous models are anything to go by you won’t be left wanting. So pop over to their site and have a gander!
