State Bicycles Adds Affordable New Cargo Cage, Ti Bolts, & Hydraulic Brakes
Sep 01, 2023
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!
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.
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.
Retail: $59.99 (pair)
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.
In addition, these brakes are designed for flat-mount and are recommended to be used with 160mm rotors, but are compatible with 140mm rotors.
They offer dual-moving pistons for even contact on the rotor. Weight is 330g a pair.
Retail: $89.99 (Pair of levers and calipers)
These Flat-Bar Hydraulic Brakes, State says, will give you ‘better breaking without breaking the bank”, and it does seem to be a great price. The brakes will be offered in two different, pre-cut hose lengths;
XS/SM: Front 800mm / Rear 1400mmMD/LG: Front 800mm / Rear 1450mm
Cargo shorts for under $100 is a good thing, and these All-Road Cargo Bibs look like they would be both comfy and functional. You know how I feel about versatility, it’s a good thing. These are designed with a performance cut and feature storage pockets for easy and quick access to goodies on long rides.
State Bikes says that the black will resist fading and the high-grade leg gripper keeps things in place. The bibs are also said to be made with quick-drying, breathable, and sweat-wicking materials.
Like all of their clothing items, State offers a full 1-year warranty, guaranteeing quality and durability.
