Hot on the heels of the limited Purple Reign single-speed we lusted over yesterday, State Bicycle Co. has more news of awesome upgrades to the 4130 Flat Bar All-Road. New colors and some pretty major mechanical upgrades are now available on this affordable and value-packed bicycle that State says is the perfect bike for gravel and/or touring.

It might even mean an all-new affordable State Bicycle Co. Gravel 1 Group-Set could be just around the corner!

The two new handsome colorways are Rust to Black fade, the name of this color (sounds kinda metal and reminds me of that Neil Young song).

Any who, the other color is called Turquoise to Black fade, not as metal sounding, but still very handsome.

What’s new?

Some of the mechanical upgrades come in the form of new hydraulic brakes, and an all-new rear derailleur, pushing the 4130 All-Road’s bang-for-your-buck factor up a few notches.

Wait what?

Tech Details – Gravel Group-Set Tease!

State Bicycle Co 4130 Flat Bar All-Road bike, flat mount hydraulic disc brakes

Yes, State now has their own branded mineral oil hydraulic flat-mount disc brakes. For now they are only paired with those entry-level Shimano-esque flat bar mountain bike brake levers, but we can only imagine the State would want to offer a drop bar version of their new hydraulic disc brakes to lower costs compared to their more halo SRAM AXS gravel bike builds!

And yes, they have an all-new second generation of their wide-range 11-speed mechanical rear derailleur. Unlike their original self-branded drivetrain a few years back, this new one has apparently been upgraded with an internally adjustable clutch so the rider can tune how much chain stabilization they actually need vs. the added drivetrain drag.

State already offered their mechanical All-Road 1 Groupset separately for just $350 – before it sold out. And this might hint at a similarly affordable Gravel version in the near future. Fingers crossed!

Yes its cheap, but is it a good deal? I feel like paying a few more $ for a known drivetrain is probably the better deal, but I’d love to hear from people with firsthand experience on how well this stuff works and holds up.

I have Sensah Empire on a gravel bike and it works well enough. If you’re capable of assembling a bike yourself, I would just buy it from Aliexpress and save some money.

The State shifters and derailleurs are just rebranded Sensah components.

There it is! I was wondering where I left my `96 schwinn moab.
