State Bicycle Co. 4130 All-Road Review

“Meet the most versatile bike State Bicycle Co has ever built. The 4130 All-Road blends all of State’s abilities to make one of the most capable and affordable bikes on the market for gravel, commuting, touring, and beyond.

With options for speedy 700c or rugged 650b wheels, a capable 11-speed drivetrain and accessory mounts galore, the 4130 All-Road is built to become the bike you need it to be for whatever your riding demands.” – State Bicycle Co.

The Frame

State built the All-Road frame from 4130 Chromoly steel which is sturdy and durable, but also very compliant on the dirt.

One will be quick to notice the fork and rear end both feature a multitude of mounting points, giving the rider endless possibilities as to rack, fender, bottle-cage, and cargo-carrying options.

The bike’s geometry is tailored to be comfortable for long days in the saddle on and off the road. The 4130 All-Road comes in 2 frame colors and 4 sizes.

Finally, the frame uses thru-axles with 100/142 spacing, a feature practically unheard-of in the sub-$1000 category. This along with massive tire clearance (700×45 or 650×50) gives the bike compatibility with a myriad of wheelset options/sizes which brings us to our favorite feature…

Wheels and Tires

The 4130 All-Road comes standard with a rider’s choice of tubeless-compatible 700c wheels with 38mm tires OR 650b with 1.9” tires. State chose the Panaracer Gravel King (a gold-standard in gravel/all-road tires) for both size options.

  • The 700c wheelset features the 38c Panaracer Gravel King, best suited for riders wanting to venture out away from road and cross over to off-road / gravel use. Or those who simply have to deal with less-than-perfect road conditions. This option is recommended for riders planning to ride on the road while also venturing into smooth gravel roads and light single-track.
  • The 650b wheelset offers a larger 1.9” Panaracer Gravel King SK tire is perfect for anyone looking for an option more suitable for lots of off-road use. This is a true “go-anywhere” tire.

650b Wheelset

BUT WHY PICK…when you can get both!? State Bicycle Co. has always had the motto Rider-First. To them, it means allowing each rider to select a bike that is perfect for their riding needs. When a rider orders their 4130 All-Road bike, they are able to choose 700c or 650b (at no cost difference) or get both for an extra $349.99. State makes it easy to go back and forth between each wheelset. Riders ordering BOTH get a 2nd set of fully-load wheels including wheels, rotors, cassettes, tires and tubes.

With BOTH wheels included, State is nearly offering 2-bikes-in-1. Commute to work with the 700c wheelset Monday-Friday, and rip the trails on your 650b wheels on the weekends!

State’s Gone Geared (again)

After building reliable and affordable urban bikes for more than a decade and having fun with off-road division projects along the way, State has some serious bike-design power. They flexed it on the 4130 All-Road, designing not only a new frameset, but also developing a custom 1×11 component group.

The crank is State’s narrow-wide 1x All-Road Crank (previously seen on the new Undefeated Road), with 42t chainring matched to with an 11-42t cassette for 1:1 gearing capable of climbing the toughest grades.

Details Matter

State has worked hard to make the 4130 All-Road perfect from the get-go. Designer Clay Maxey took inspiration from their home state of Arizona, off-road vehicles, and an unlikely source-sneakers. Clay is a self-proclaimed sneakerhead and the staggered-swoosh look on the Nike Sacai LDV is incorporated into a similar graphic styling on the 4130 All-Road.

From the top (New All-Road Bars) to the bottom (Stealth Thru-Axle), State took their time to develop each aspect of the bike to get this bike exactly where it needed to be. Of course, it’s backed by State’s 5-year warranty.

  1. Yes! Having just spent $2,000 on an GRX Di2 upgrade for my custom steel 44 Bike Huntsman, it’s nice to see that you can still get a very competent and well thought out ride for under $1,000. Hats off to State Bicycle.
