If You’re Looking for an Affordable Bike For Your Commute, This Is It


State Bicycles just released its first geared bike, the 4130 Road, perfect for your commute to work. If you were thinking about buying a new bike to start commuting, this bike is it. At $550, it’s affordable, and at just under 23 pounds, it’s light enough to lug into elevators and up staircases. The vintage-inspired accent paint in black, white and red is flashy enough to stand out amongst a sea of more staid rides, but low key enough that you can slip through the city.

If you can’t store it in your apartment, home or garage —or if you’re locking up outside frequently — we highly recommend you also buy a top-notch lock to keep it safe, too. Shop the new bike today.

Specialized Turbo Vado 6 ($5050)
