The truth of the matter is that you’re probably always running late. Those five-minute trips always take you ten minutes and those ten-minute trips take you something closer to 20 minutes. But if you had a bike, that’s less likely to be a problem. The truth is that whether you know it or not, you need a bike in your life. Forgetting for a moment that the exercise they give you is extremely healthy for you (which you shouldn’t), riding a bike is also a fun way to get around.
The catch we’ve seen with buying bikes is that if they’re aesthetically pleasing, they’re probably going to be expensive. And if the bike is cheap, it’s more than likely to be a beater, or worse, stolen. Enter State Bicycles: a fixed gear bike company designed by bike enthusiasts for people who want to have fun riding bikes at an affordable price. Those of you who are familiar with our Miss COED 2017 competition know that State Bicycles stepped up and offered the winner, Maggie Arceneaux, a brand new bike. If you’re a fan of Broad City, you might also know State Bicycles from the hilarious Soulstice party at Trey’s (aka Kirk Steele) house.
What we love about State Bicycles so much is that not only are they well-reviewed and high-quality bikes which somehow manage to remain affordable, the bikes look rad as f***.
For an example of said radness, State Bicycles just did a limited collaboration with The Simpsons. The Simpsons x State Bicycle collection features everything from bikes, to apparel, to accessories which feature your favorite characters and scenes. If cartoons aren’t your cup of tea, State Bicycles have a ton of other options which include matte colors, rainbows, etc.
It’s important to keep in mind that you don’t need to be a bike enthusiast or a gear head to spark an interest in State Bicycles. Some of their bikes start at $299. Their bikes are designed for riders first, and that means comfort, control, and speed. Of course, if you are a cycling enthusiast, or want to upgrade your bike to something else, State Bicycles definitely has what you’re looking for.
Even their Instagram is 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥. Go ahead and check them out in some of the pictures below.
