State Bicycle Co. Vintage

I love vintage bicycles but I hate it when they break down constantly. I was trying to get the "Vintage" model from State Bicycle Co. and the model retired! So now I'm starting this petition to have it brought back!

Sign the petition by clicking here!

If you can please help me by signing this! You don't need to put a real address!

Here are some pictures of the bicycle! As well as a link to it! (Do not attempt to buy it! It's no longer for sale!)

It doesn't come with a kickstand. It's taken like that for the website pictures only. It has front brakes as well but they aren't pictured.

Agreed, just because they discontinued a certain paint color theme doesn't make a vintage any more vintage than any of the other bikes they offer ?

I think if they named a color way "ignorant *******" it may sell better than a totally dumb asshat bike that has nothing vintage about it being named vintage. Naming a bike anything but the paint color is stupid and that bike sucks.

I will glady sign a petition for them to stop making bikes.

Do you really want that crappy bike so bad that you're going out of your way to try getting people to sign a petition?

Besides, the link in your sig only leads to a picture of another crappy bike.

Man, there is nothing special about that bike. Don't over-think this. It would probably be easier if you bought a decent frame and a pair of deep-V rims and had them painted those colors. It may cost a few bucks more than what State was charging, but at least you know you'll get what you want. Plus, that will happen sooner than this whole petition process. Even if State does like the petition and reinstates the bike to the line, it will still take time to produce.

You can buy a frame and deep-V rims today and send them to a local powder coating place.
