The Matte Black 5 is one of State Bicycle’s Core Line models, and is easily our most popular bike in the shop. It’s easy to understand why when one considers the $499 pricetag for a 4130 Chromoly frame with either riser bars, bullhorns, or drops. The frame features mounting points for a rear rack, so it makes a great single-speed commuter, or you can flip over to the fixed-gear mode for a solid platform for urban riding.

The 4130 Double-butted Chromoly frame is durable, and offers the smooth ride inherent in a quality steel frame. The single speed set up is great for city riding, is low maintenance, and light enough to carry up several flights of stairs at the end of your day.

Hoping everyone has a happy and safe holiday! If you find yourself with too much holiday cash weighing your wallet down, we just might know a few good ways to repurpose it! Say, maybe a new bag from Freight Baggage or Trash Bags? How else are you going to carry all those presents around, or your supplies for a New Year’s party? There’s really no better way.
