Known for offering quality bikes and accessories to the masses at reasonable prices, State Bicycles has released some new goodies that continue that practice. Their new Cargo Cage, Ti Bolts, cargo bib shorts, and house-branded cable-actuated hydraulic brake calipers are here, and as expected, reasonably priced.

Let’s take a look!

State Cargo Cages

Retail: $24.99

The Desert Cargo Cages are made from strong, aircraft-grade, 5250 aluminum. State Bikes says that these bad boys are engineered to be both strong and light.

Their design is inspired by the rough and tumble desert of State’s home in Arizona, and are sporting a cool desert scene that is structurally machined into the cage in the right spots.

The cages are a perfect match for the State All-Road Steel Fork or Carbon Monster Fork. Combine the Desert Cage with the two included silicone molded straps and you’re ready for your next adventure.

Desert Cargo Cage Features

  • High-Quality Material: Crafted from 5250 Aluminum (Aircraft Grade).
  • Secure Cargo Straps: Add the Silicon molded straps (22mm x 56cm) allowing you to carry items such as insulated Hydroflasks, small dry bags, or ultralight sleeping pads and shelters.
  • Versatile Mounting Patterns: The State Bicycle Co. Desert Cargo Cage easily mounts to water bottle cage mounts and other unorthodox bolt patterns.
  • Impressive Load Capacity: Despite its lightweight construction, the Desert Cargo Cage can carry up to 25.0 lbs of gear.
  • Lightweight Design: Weight is just 168g (without straps, 246g with straps)

State Titanium Bolts

Retail: $12.99 (4-pack)

State Titanium Cage Mounting Bolts will enhance what is an often overlooked upgrade to both add strength and a little bling. These Titanium Bolts are made with Grade 5 titanium and weigh just 1.6g each (steel bolts weigh 3.4g) for unmatched strength-to-weight ratios.

Pick your color with choices of Black, Raw Ti and Oil Slick.

Titanium Bolt Features

  • Unmatched Strength: The Titanium bolts are crafted with Grade 5 Titanium, known for its exceptional strength and durability.
  • Light as a Feather: Titanium is renowned for being incredibly lightweight, and these Titanium bolts are no exception. At just 1.6g each, they are nearly half the weight of standard steel bolts that weigh 3.4g.
  • Corrosion-Resistant: Say farewell to rust and corrosion! Titanium is naturally resistant to environmental elements.
  • Three Stunning Finishes: The Titanium bolts are available in three eye-catching finishes: Oli Slick, Raw Ti, and Black.
  • Universal Compatibility: These Titanium bolts are compatible with any bike featuring standard water bottle cage braze-ons.

State All-Road Disc Calipers

State Bike’s Cable-Actuated Hydraulic Disc Brake Caliper can be added to any bike that runs cable-actuated disc brakes. Giving the rider the combined benefits of the cable-actuated disc brake’s reliability, and ease of maintenance, with the performance and stopping power of a hydraulic disc brake, these are a great addition.
