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.
The collection includes a selection of “dad hats”, t-shirts, a cycling cap, jersey, roll-top backpack, water bottle, bar tape, foot straps, and a saddle. The Simpsons x State Bicycle Co. Limited Edition Accessories aim to spruce up your cycling experience, a mission which State Bicycle Co. has been faithfully adhering too since 2009. So, if you are up for striking look for cycling, this is it. Seriously, if I still have a bike, I would wrap the entire frame with the bar tape and top it off with the donut-themed saddle. This is so freaking cool! But only if you love The Simpsons as much as I do, or you just love donuts, or you simply adore all-thing pink. Prices for the The Simpsons x State Bicycle Co. Limited Edition Accessory Line starts at $14.99 and run up to $69.99.
