Known for their affordable fixed gears, city bikes, and recently, their geared Undefeated road bikes, State Bicycle Co. seems to know how to squeeze the most performance out of every dollar. So when it came time to venture into the all-road/gravel segment of the market, it seems they not only focused on the 4130 chromoly steel frame, but the components as well. In order to produce their most capable bike yet at an amazing price point, they needed a build kit that wouldn’t skimp on performance. So they came up with their own.

State Bicycle Co. 4130 All-Road rolls in with their own 1x11 component group!

All-Road 1×11 complete drivetrain group

Yes, State Bicycle Co. now offers their own complete 1×11 drivetrain. Included with the complete All-Road build, you’ll also be able to buy this kit for just $349.

That includes a 1x crank in your choice of 165, 170, or 175mm lengths with a 42t narrow-wide chainring. The cranks use a standard 110 BCD so you can swap out the rings for something else, but State also will sell their All-Road 1 chainrings in 38, 40, 42, and 44t. The All-Road 1 crankset is a two piece design with a hollow axle and 68mm threaded bottom bracket with a claimed weight of 839g for the crank and 105g for the BB. You can buy the crank for $149.99 outside of the group with a 42t chainring and bottom bracket included. Chainrings will sell for $27.99 each.

For now, it seems the only way to get their 1×11 drop bar levers, derailleur, and cassette is to purchase the complete group or to buy a complete bike. Simply calling it the All-Road 1 drivetrain, it includes an 11-42t cassette and an 11 speed YBN chain. It appears that the cassette uses a standard Shimano HG splined freehub which is offered on the State wheelsets (yes, they have those too – in 650b or 700c). State does not specify what company may be manufacturing the drivetrain for them, so it will be interesting to see how well it shifts. But at these prices, it looks very appealing.

Included in the complete build or drivetrain kit is a pair of Promax DSK-300R flat mount mechanical disc brakes with 160mm rotors.

All-Road flared dropbars

Rounding out the State branded build kit is an All-Road 1 handlebar that are sold in a single width – 420mm at the top, and 500mm wide at the drops. The aluminum bars use a 31.8mm clamping surface and check in at 429g and just $29.99.

All-Road Saddle

The All-Road Saddle adds a bit of cushion and weighs a claimed 328g. It can be purchased for $34.99.

Tubeless Compatible All-Road Wheels

Need a wheelset? State has you covered there as well with their tubeless compatible All-Road set in 650b or 700c. These both include 28h double walled aluminum rims with a 19mm internal width/24mm external width, and 11 speed, 6 bolt hubs with 12 x 100 and 12 x 142mm axle spacing to match up with the All-Road frame.

4130 All-Road Complete

Add it all together and you’ll end up with what appears to be a very capable bike at just $799. Yes, that’s the price for the complete build with all of the parts listed above (and tubeless ready Panaracer Gravel King tires!).

The 4130 steel frame is offered in Pigeon Gray or Desert Tan colors, and includes a matching steel fork – both with clearance for 700c x 45mm or 650b x 50mm tires. Quite a few braze -ons are included to mount racks, fenders, bottle cages, and cargo options, and cable routing is kept simple with full external routing guided through bolt-on clamps along the downtube. While the frame and fork both include 12mm thru axles and flat mount brakes, the steerer and headtube stick with 1 1/8″, and the bottom bracket is a BSA threaded 68mm shell.

State is selling the All-Road with your choice of 700c or 650b tubeless compatible wheels. The 700c option includes the tubeless ready 38mm Panaracer Gravel King tire, while the 650b option rolls on tubeless ready 1.9″ Panaracer Gravelking SK rubber. Can’t decide which size you want to run? Why not both? State offers a dual wheelset package for an additional $349. That includes not just an additional wheelset, but also another set of rotors, tires, tubes, and a cassette so you can quickly swap back and forth.

State Bicycle Co. 4130 All-Road rolls in with their own 1x11 component group! Sold in four sizes, you can pick up the frameset for $369.99 if you already have your own parts.

For less than the price of many wheelsets, State Bicycle Co. has somehow managed to put together a complete All-Road/gravel bike that looks more than capable. For those riders curious about this whole gravel thing, it certainly won’t be the lightest bike out there at 25lbs 4oz – 26lbs 9oz, but it looks like a great platform to start with. Check out the full spec list here. The bike is backed by State’s 5 year warranty, and the bike and components are available now.

A word from State Bicycle Co. on current affairs

For the past few months, we have seen skyrocketing demand for our uniquely value-focused bicycles, and have worked hard to provide an affordable option to riders seeking a new bike.

With our presales consistently selling out and our inboxes full of requests for information on when we’ll have bikes to buy, we feel it is not in the interest of our riding communities to hold back from offering our 4130 All-Road model for sale. Individuals are searching for bikes to buy, and we are also working to support our dealer network as they in turn are hustling to meet demand.

We serve many new and aspirational riders and recognize that bicycles are tools for transportation as well as physical and mental fitness, and our mission is to support the cycling community. Right now, part of that support is getting more bikes into the hands of riders who want them.

At the same time, we’ve been reflecting on what do do in light of recent events. We listened to what our community members are doing, and are using our platform to amplify their voices. We are supporting the #25MilesForJustice campaign started by Garnett Whitmire (@crit.whit) asking riders to log 25 miles in memory of George Floyd and donate to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

Supporting our community can take multiple forms, and for us, it always comes back to the bicycle. We will continue working to represent the diversity within the cycling community and using our space to lift voices other than our own.

If I’m Sram-ano, I am REALLY sweating.

I doubt either of the big S companies are concerned about this.

I know. That’s the thing. Early-mid 70s, Campy wasn’t very concerned. Early 90s, Shimano wasn’t very concerned. Both Sram and Shimano are taking heavy, heavy fire from companies doing this kind of thinking, as well as OEM sales, Rotor, FSA… and China. If they’re smart, they’re very concerned.

SRAM and Shimano still aren’t concerned about Rotor, Box, FSA, etc. How many bikes do you see come stock with anything other than Shimano or SRAM?

Great Deal on the frame, but not sure about the rest. The build kits looks like Sensah, which can be bought on it’s own pretty cheap. The saddle is rubbish, and I wouldn’t trust the wheels to stay true very long. Also, one size of handlebars is silly. Since this type pf bar makes the shifters point in, many people will want a wider bar so it feels more natural.

Sure it’s a rebranded sensah but still it’s a very good deal in my opinion;

The rear derailleur cable routing under the chain stay makes the cable loop out diagonally on its path to the mech. Sure as sh*t it gets snagged on something.

An $800 bike and that’s the only nit I got so, amazing. Chapeau State. It weighs no more than my Kona Sutra, which sells for 2000+

I was like “wow” until I noticed that the shifters/ levers aren’t hydraulic, then it was…well..its still a decent setup for the money. I’m sure Sram or Shimano won’t be too concerned unless they start making a hydro group for $200 or less, more.

I have been wondering for a while now… how surly gets away with their pricing…
From personal experience (owned 3 surly’s, sold all 3 thank god) they are always the heaviest, blankets riding, least-performance oriented bikes ive ever ridden. I get thats pretty much what surlys about. I love steel bikes and I’m not a cool guy, not a weight weenie. But their bikes are not that special enough to warrant $700+ ‘natch’ framesets when you can get somethibg like this from state at the same price.
Good for state!

Heavy fire? More like a few snowballs lobbed by an eight year old. Think about the volume of Shimano’s 6-7-8-9s parts sales. And SRAM-Shimano dominance of high end or race spec bikes. There’s some stuff out there that’s interesting and keeps them on their toes but that’s about it. Has been that way since about 1988.
I agree about Campy though, sadly they lost the plot by following Shimano and Pro Tour agendas and perhaps the worst change in design direction I can think of in the bike industry.

The mechanical brakes are a huge plus, folks. I do *not* want to be the mechanic who gets stuck trying to repair/bleed/get parts for house-brand hydraulics. It’s hard enough dealing with unsupported old Hayes/Formula/Magura. Mechanical brakes mean that you can install a set of BB7s when the OEM calipers buy the farm. Smart, forward-thinking move.

Well done State, as soon as I hear from you for sizing advice (at 5’7” I should be in a small but I ride a 55cm All City Gorilla) I’m picking up one with both wheel sets. It amazes me how you can put together such a nice bike at a real price! If your not racing and just enjoying riding (even if it is the D2R2 or other semi competitive rides) this is more bike then I need. Steel is heavy-er but I’m not racing what does 12% faster really get me? I love the ride of steel and the component set is fine for the price. I ripped my derailure off a broke on the second ride, a stick doesn’t care about Force, Rival or Sensah! Nothing wrong with top of the line stuff (I love my Ultegra Di2 bike) but love to see people making great bikes at an affordable price. There is a huge gap between Walmart & DSP bikes and the big boys. This fills a great gap, txs State!!
