my name is Alex
Alex Zemke
I fell in love with bikes in 1992, when I got my first BMX from my parents. It was An American Rider brand with this unforgettable Velcro-like foam fixed to the top tube of the frame. On this bike I quickly learned how to ride and it suffered from my first trick trials! In order to stay out of trouble with my parents each time my bike broke - I started fixing it myself, simultaneously learning its every nut and bolt. From then on I was taken by the cycling world, inspired by such figures as Dave Mirra, Ryan Nyquist and Matt Hoffman.
Nowdays I try to cycle at every possible opportunity. Throughout the last 15 years I have ridden a few thousand miles in my city which taught me well which features are crucial for a city bike and making urban cycling truly enjoyable. From my point of view, a perfect city bike needs to be light, fast and have a sport geometry which makes manoeuvrability and accelerating easy. It also needs to feature top quality components which guarantee durability and a great riding experience. I founded LOCA BIKES to build exactly such bikes - to combine a perfected design with an enjoyable ride. So enjoyable that riding them will become a powerful habit. Why? Because I know that a cyclist stands for a happy man, and the more cyclists in the streets the healthier we and the enviroment become.
