Love my bike!

I have been shopping for a bike for a long time. I was going to buy a State road bike. But when I saw the Dead bike, I knew it was perfect. With this bike people love it. Great paint work and great ride! Adding a Brooks saddle a good move....adding some custom, comfortable style!!!!!

To say I am geeking out on this new bike is an understatement!! Part mountain, part cruiser, part bmx. State Bicycle Co. this is above and beyond. #deadhead

Only downfall there was no handle bar grips. One swipe off Amazon and problem solved.

Fun Bike

It seems to be a common problem that bikes are delivered with scratches. Mine is no exception. Pretty annoying considering it’s a limited run and it hits the resale value a bit. The bike itself is really fun to ride and gets lots of looks. The 42:22 gearing is horrible but that’s an easy fix. It really should be 42:18 or 16. It’s my play/happy hour/getting nowhere in a hurry bike that is solid and seemingly durable! Super stoked!

The Klunker. What is it? A beautiful, retro-inspired, mash-up of: part beach cruiser, part mountain bike, and part BMX. The perfect “DGAF” bike, for neighborhood cruises, trips to the corner store, and walking the dog….OR… if you’re feeling audacious, mount up and rip a trail.

The SBC Klunker has the durable wheels, frame, and handlebars of a BMX bike, with ground-eating mountain bike tires, so mount up and rip a trail if you are feeling audacious. It is the ultimate all-purpose bicycle. Think of all the advantages:

  • Simplicity. No gears to shift. No derailleurs or cables to adjust and maintain.
  • 27.5” wheels for easy rolling and 2.3” WTB knobby tires for durability and traction.
  • The Klunker has a coaster brake. Nothing could be simpler, more durable, and maintenance-free.
  • The Klunker has a comfortable, upright seating position.
  • The Klunker is provided with flat pedals. Ride with any shoes, even sandals.
  • Order your Klunker with optional LED lights, pedal straps, water bottle cage, and bike lock. The bottle opener is standard!

All these features make the Klunker a practical commuter bike. But the SBC Klunker is downright cool and turns heads. It is totally awesome and minimalist at the same time!

The State Bicycle Klunker is built to take a beating and look good while doing it. It will never let you down. The Klunker will deliver more smiles per mile than any other bike. It’s the most bike and fun you can buy for under $500.00.
