State Bicycle Co. Teamed Up With The Simpsons Some Donut-ish Accessories

What has cult TV cartoon series The Simpsons has to do with cycling? Nothing. What has the iconic pink donut in the The Simpsons got to do with cycling? Nothing either. However, that does not make the The Simpsons x State Bicycle Co. Limited Edition Accessories, a collaboration between State and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products (FCP) and The Simpsons, any less desirable. In fact, I thought the collection of hats, backpack, apparels, and bicycle/cycling accessories, are oddly attractive. It could be the pink donut(s) that decorated the various merchandises that makes them so irresistible. In a gender-stereotyping way of looking at it, pink is not quite the color for dudes, but pink donut(s) on the other hand makes all the difference. Continue reading State Bicycle Co.
