    Superbly beautiful day and got in a 45km ride around Pitt Meadows greenway.
    Went out with the friend I sold my Fathom to.

    NBD!

    State Bicycle Co. 4130 Road. A modern version of a classic road bike with a unique 1x8 down tube shifting drivetrain.

    State are all about nailing style with their bikes, but on the cheap. Thus, it arrived in need of a few upgrades.

    It got the Brooks saddle off my other steel bike, the pair of barely used Gatorskins from my wrecked road bike, and a set of Kool Stop salmon brake pads I had laying around. Next up, wheels need truing and I'll likely upgrade the brake cables & housing.

    Already a super fun whip. Feels fast and nimble and a very respectable weight for steel.

    A hint of things to come for me. How freakin' nice is this SRAM XPLR cassette? Skeletal structure all pinned together into one piece, chrome plating. I almost don't want to get it all dirty and greasy...

    It's 10-44, for use with the SRAM wireless 12-speed gravel derailleur. I decided to go full modern for my main rig, so this will go on a road oriented carbon wheelset to complement a carbon gravel bike with electronic shifting.

    First mountain bike ride of the year with my son. A very foggy, dark New Years' day in New England:
