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 and it’s super lightweight.
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 tapered head tube and front thru axle are responsible for very responsive handling. The Loca Bikes 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 men's city bikes, comfortably move off and ride up steep hills. You can also choose a single speed drivetrain - a single gear will allow you to significantly reduce the weight (from as little as 9 kg) and price of the bike.
Above all, such a set-up ensures complete maintenance-free and trouble-free operation, keeping the need to service your bike at an absolute minimum.
Apart from the trouble-free operation of our men's city bikes, customers also appreciate the comfort and versatility they offer.
Each men's 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. Our men's city bikes can also be equipped with a lightweight, adjustable stem that allows you to quickly change from an aerodynamic to a more upright and comfortable position.
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.
Thanks to the wide tires and the possibility of installing full-length fenders or racks, our men's city bikes may only be city by name. Many of our customers who own such bikes travel thousands of kilometers outside the city every year, winding through forests, fields, and over gentle mountainous terrain. Let the best proof of this be the achievements of bike traveller Rafał Gręźlikowski on one of our men's city bikes.
In our range of men's 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 40 mm 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.
Our men's city bikes are true chameleons. Using our universal frame as the heart, we can build a light and rapid men’s city bike, a comfortable cruiser with a high-set handlebar and wide saddle, or even a gravel bike with off-road tires and drop handlebars.
Quality is of the utmost importance to us. That's why we use only the highest quality parts in the construction of our men's city bikes, such as the new generation Shimano Alfine 11 or Nexus 8 derailleur gears, Gates carbon drive belts, Novatec hubs with cartridge bearings, Tange headsets, Continental tires, Brooks English saddles, and Black Sapim Leader spokes.
For each men's city bike from Loca, you have a 5-year warranty on the frames and forks, and a 2-year warranty on all other parts.
