Whoop! I am now sponsored by State Bicycle Co and I am stoked! I have been chatting to the awesome guys at State Bicycle Co for a while now and we recently finalised everything and the contract was signed. I have always had a huge amount of respect for what State Bicycle Co do and their ‘ride and have fun’ attitude, so I am really excited about joining the team.
I have a lot of plans for 2015 and I can’t wait for the first of many fun outings on my bike. I have just received the 2015 Undefeated and whilst I was a massive fan of the fluro yellow and black colourway I must admit that I am loving the polished aluminium and black. I am still in the process of fine tuning my race machine and will post a full bike check when it’s done. At the moment the I am riding the stock set up…well apart from changing the bars, seat, chainring and putting a 165 crank on.
State have really been going for it the past couple of years and are a company that just keep bettering themselves. I am not just saying that because I ride for them, it is something I really believe and I wouldn’t agree to be on their team if I didn’t think this. Their newest off road range is awesome and I really hope I can get my hands on one of the Thunderbirds (CX bike).
I ride bikes because it’s fun, it is a bonus that it keeps me fit but for me it’s all about having a laugh. I enjoy riding with friends, racing and pushing myself. This seems to be an ethos State Bicycle Co believes in and one of the many reasons I am stoked to be part of the team. Thank you Mehdi and State Bicycle Co, heres to an awesome 2015!
