State Honors The Notorious B.I.G. With A Special Bike & Clothing Capsule

Category: Gear

State Bike Co. is no stranger to collaboration, partnering with some of the biggest names in style, fashion, and cycling to bring its customers some of the most interesting capsules around. Now, the culturally-adept company has revealed its latest project — an officially-licensed collection of gear paying homage to Christopher Wallace (AKA The Notorious B.I.G.) and his legendary achievements within the world of music.

As avid fans of the hip-hop genre, State Bicycle’s Notorious B.I.G. capsule seeks to honor Wallace’s contributions (and admittance into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame) through unique branding, iconography, and color. Smaller items, like a “Ready To Die”-themed jersey and bib set, cap, and t-shirt, join the likes of more eye-catching examples like the “stained glass” bib and hat, and “King of New York” bar tape. But, perhaps the most interesting aspect of the collection comes in the form of an awe-inspiring, two-tone bicycle, dubbed the “Ready To Die Core-Line.” This fixed-gear, single-speed cycle boasts a dependable steel frame, seat-stay rack mounts, and a flip-flop hub, allowing you to switch between freewheel and fixed riding with ease, while unique accents pay subtle homage to the legendary lord of hip-hop. Head over to State’s website to learn more about the collection, which starts at an attractive $16 and up.

Purchase: $16+
