It is not only the unique look that makes the ladies’ city bikes from Loca stand out. It is down to the production of our bicycles too. We pay attention to the smallest of details and choose the right combination of components in such a way as to ensure maximum comfort, reliability, and pure pleasure when riding our bicycles.
Each bike is painted and assembled to individual specifications. This means that you are the one who decides on your machine. You can participate in the building process with us and design the bike of your dreams!
The frames are made in Poland, from 7020 aluminium - an alloy that is lighter and more durable than the popular AL6061. Meanwhile, the carbon fork provides excellent vibration damping, plus a featherweight.
The tapered head tube and front thru axle are responsible for very responsive handling. The Loca Bikes ladies’ city bike will handle confidently in all conditions.
A drivetrain consisting of a chain or a Gates Carbon Drive and a trouble-free,
multi-speed Shimano Nexus 8 hub or an Alfine 11 allows you to choose the right gear in every situation. It allows you to reach speeds that are out of the reach of typical ladies’ city bikes, comfortably move off and ride up steep hills. You can also choose a single speed drive - a single gear will allow you to significantly reduce the weight (from as little as 9 kg) and price of the bike.
However, it's not just the well-configured drivetrain that is responsible for the way our ladies' city bikes ride, but above all their low weight, starting at just 9 kg. This is much less than the popular Dutch bikes. We realise that in addition to weight and good riding characteristics, convenience, reliability and versatility are also key in city bikes. Comfort is assured by a high quality saddle made by Velo, XLC or Brooks, ergonomic grips and an adjustable stem that allows you to choose the perfect body position for you.
Each ladies’ city bike from Loca is fitted with 700x38C or even 700x45c tires that have great damping abilities and come equipped with anti-puncture inserts. If you want, you can add a suspension seatpost, bright LED lights, high-quality fenders, chain guard, kickstand, and rear rack.
Hydraulic disc brakes provide massive stopping power, no matter how bad the conditions are - rain or snow won't make the slightest impression on them.
Sliding dropouts, designed and CNC cut in Poland, will help you position the rear wheel correctly. We have variants for quick release hubs, full axle gear hubs or thru axles. Integrated tensioners make chain tensioning a breeze. In addition, the dropout at the right side can be opened - so you can also fit a more robust belt drive with ease.
In our range of ladies’ city bikes, it is in vain to look for a front suspension, and this is because we think it isn't necessary.
The roughness that we usually have to deal with when riding in the city or on moderate terrain is dampened by our 4 cm wide tires. The absence of a suspension fork saves us from any additional maintenance and repairs, and above all translates into a lighter bike, shaving off at least 1.5 kg from the total weight. Your energy will also not be unnecessarily absorbed by the suspension fork when sprinting and climbing.
For each ladies’ city bike from Loca, you have a 5-year warranty on the frames and forks, and a 2-year warranty on all other parts.
