Following its collaboration with Wu-Tang Clan, State Bicycles have once again partnered with another icon of the music industry: The Beatles. As before, the collab goes beyond pedal-powered two-wheelers; it is a capsule collection that features The Beatles-themed bicycles as well as cycling apparel.
The State Bicycle Co. x The Beatles Capsule Collection features Beatles-inspired jerseys, tech tees, and two limited-edition bikes: Yellow Submarine Klunker and 4130 (Abbey) Road Bike.
The retro-inspired, mash-up of part beach cruiser, part mountain bike, and part BMX of the Klunker is a perfect retro-match with the brightly colored and cheery Yellow Submarine livery.
All the key details of Yellow Submarine are present, including the iconic Yellow Submarine graphic, the portholes each featuring a member of the legendary English rock band, and the underwater scene.
Here are the key features of the Yellow Submarine Klunker:
- Simplicity. No gears to shift. No derailleurs or cables to adjust and maintain.
- 27.5” wheels for easy rolling and 2.3” WTB knobby tires** for durability and traction.
- The Klunker has a coaster brake. Nothing could be simpler, more durable, and maintenance-free.
- The Klunker has a comfortable, upright seating position.
- The Klunker is provided with flat pedals. Ride with any shoes, even sandals.
- Order your Klunker with optional LED lights, pedal straps, water bottle cage, and bike lock. The bottle opener is standard!
- MSRP: US$450
For fans who prefer a more toned-down/classy look, there’s the 4130 (Abbey) Road Bike. Unlike the Yellow Submarine Klunker, the 4130 (Abbey) Road Bike is way more subtle with hints of a crosswalk outside the Abbey Road studio on the bike frame, and the words “Abbey Road” decorating the chain guard.
