April 20th, 2021, Phoenix, AZ: For immediate release – State Bicycle Co. and The Grateful Dead announce a collaborative effort to spread good vibes and take the recent bike boom to new heights. Both State Bicycle Co. and The Grateful Dead have built their respective followings around awareness, self-expression, and freedom. Now, these two brands announce a collaboration to offer a full line of bicycles, cycling apparel, and accessories. Each piece is adorned with the most treasured symbols associated with the Dead: the Dancing Bears and the Lightning Bolt.
STATE x Grateful Dead Collaboration – Celebrating Cycling And Music
State Bicycle Co. announces it will also produce two limited editions of its popular Klunker, decorated with Dancing Bears and Lightning Bolt decals. The SBC Klunker is a retro-inspired, combination of a beach cruiser, mountain bike, and BMX bike. The State Bicycle Co. x Grateful Dead special edition Klunkers epitomize carefree days with the wind in your hair.
State Bicycle Co.’s Co-Founder, Mehdi Farsi stated, “Having teamed up with the Grateful Dead, we are combining environmental consciousness with the free spirit that has characterized multiple generations of Dead Heads around the world. The music and the vibe of the Grateful Dead is a perfect match for the expansive feelings we all gain through bicycling!”
This collaborative effort is a continuation of State Bicycles’ passion for combining music, culture, and cycling. As pop culture influences every aspect of our lives, this reflective capsule collection will sell out faster than a ticket to see the Dead in concert.
