Black Classic is the elegance and minimalism that we love at Loca Bikes. In this design, apart from its simplicity, you will find a lot of beautiful details such as the finishing of the fork in black gloss - its shade matching perfectly to the shade of lettering and the other details on the frame
With our frame, you can create a versatile gravel bike for long trips in varied terrain or a fast machine for clocking up the miles on the road.
- Clearance for a max of 700x43c or 650x47c tires
- Thru axles (100x12 mm front, 142x12 mm rear)
- Full carbon fork and tapered headtube
- Possibility to mount full-length fenders, rear rack, and two bottle cages
- On request, we can fit tubeless tires
- Sporty geometry combining the best of gravel bike and endurance road bike
- Frames made of alloy 7020 which is 30% more durable as well as lighter and better shock absorbing than the common 6061 T6 one.
- Our gravel frames are made by hand in Gliwice,Poland. They go through extensive tests in the factories and have survived many ultra-distance races and bikepacking expeditions. The design, assembly and painting of the bikes takes place in Wrocław.
Remember! At Loca Bikes, our bikes are always made to order. If you would like to change the paintwork or have any special requests concerning the configuration, let us know!
The technical details of individual parts and information on frame geometry can be found below.
The price is for a bike matching the specification below. The configuration shown in the photos may differ.
We still have some sizes of frames made in Taiwan available. These bikes are cheaper by 170€. Please contact us if you are interested.

The geometry of the gravel bike frames from Loca Bikes is characterized by relatively sharp angles and a short wheelbase. Thanks to this, our bikes are maneuverable, react precisely to your movements and allow you to take on an aerodynamic position. That said, we didn’t go to the extremes and on descents and long trails, our bikes also offer good stability and comfort.
