Olive & Black

Our steel frames are perfect if you're looking for a bike that has to be ready for anything. High strength, excellent vibration damping and a relaxed geometry make this the ultimate bike for long bikepacking trips.

  • Clearance up to max of 700x45c tires
  • Thru axles (100x12 mm front, 142x12 mm rear)
  • Full carbon fork and tapered headtube
  • Possibility to mount full-length fenders, rear rack, three bottle cages on a frame, two on the fork and a direct mount top tube bag
  • On request, we can fit tubeless tires
  • Balanced geometry for stability and comfort on demanding long rides
  • The frame is made of Italian Columbus Zona steel tubing, which provides a great compromise between weight and strength. These steel tubes dampen vibrations much better than aluminium constructions. The dropouts, head tubes and bottom bracket shells are made in the USA by Paragon Machine Works
  • Our steel gravel frames are hand welded in Poland by Kajak from Kajak Custom manufacture - one of the most famous framebuilders in Poland. These frames have survived many races and bikepacking expeditions. The whole project, design and painting of the frames are also local processes.

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 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.

Affordable and fast
Bikes are sent by courier to any destination in Europe and beyond. The delivery time takes up to 1-2 working days in Poland and 4-5 in EU. Bike shipping costs only 20-40 EUR across EU and is free in Poland.
14 day
It’s possible to return a bicycle up to 14 days after the date of purchase as long as it has no signs of use. It is a bit of a challenge for us since each bike is personalized and it makes reselling a bit of a tough one. Nevertheless, we give you the possibility to do this due to the confidence we have in the quality of our products.
A bike that’s unique and signed with its owner's name is definitely less likely to be stolen. However, to offer even more security, we can register your bike in the Velock system database. We also offer you the possibility to insure it against theft and to buy a high-quality bike lock.
Our bikes can be purchased on an installment plan. Add a bike to your shopping cart and choose "INSTALLMENTS” to see the detailed conditions for the chosen installment plan
