We’ve been wanting to carry a nice entry level fixed gear bike for a while and I think we finally found a good brand to work with us. We are now carrying State Bicycles, which are based out of Tempe, Arizona. State’s goal is to bring the most attractive, high quality, and smooth riding fixed gear/single speed bicycles to the market at the lowest price possible. They currently offer 8 different color combinations, 3 handlebar styles (Bullhorns, riser bars, and drop-down bars), and 4 sizes (49cm, 52cm, 55cm, and 59cm). Each bicycle model that they offer is available for 3 months to a year before it is “retired” and they release newly designed models to replace it — so it’s not likely you will see other State Bicycles that look like yours all around town. In May 2010 State retired the Magenta and the Fascist from their collection. And in July 2010, they released the Marino, Hyphy, and The Samurai, as well introducing a size 49 cm in all 8 models. By August 2010, they began adding frame sets, wheel sets, handlebars, grips, tires, tubes and other accessories which we also hope to carry soon. Lastly, from day one, State Bicycle has offered 100% FREE shipping to the continental United States and they have absolutely no intentions of changing that. That free shipping will be offered to all Byke Shop customers as well.
