© 2016 State Bicycle Co..
State Bicycle Co. got its start with urban bikes, fixed-gears, and singlespeeds. The Thunderbird, reviewed here, is the brand’s one-gear go at a cyclocross rig. I rode it over the past month on dirt, gravel roads, and pavement for a test. At about $1,000, the bike qualifies as an entry-level competition steed. Or, it’s just a hella fun all-around ride, which can switch from city to dirt, literally, without changing gears.
