As LOCO CYCLES continues to expand throughout the country and abroad, we thought it was time to show our faces at one of the largest cycling conventions on the globe, Interbike 2015. Being the largest cycling convention in North America, Interbike is responsible for influencing some of the most significant trends and developments in contemporary cycling. Frankly speaking, if cycling had a fashion week, Interbike would be it; dictating what's hot and what's not as well as everything that lays in between.
Being fairly new to the industry we understood the benefits of exposure and networking that Interbike could provide. However, we also understood the importance of waiting patiently on the sidelines for the sake of maturing and actually having a solidified brand and product base to present. So after four years of sidelining, growing and grinding we’ve decided it was prime time. During the recent release of our signature line, the FG Cruiser®, we prepped for months in effort to perfect and finalize all the content to be shown at our debut booth.
From September 15th, the Loco Cycles team flew out to Las Vegas, Nevada for the three day event being held at the world renowned Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Once showcasing some of the most iconic boxing matches of the sports history, now showcased the latest and greatest developments in and around the cycling industry. Companies, connoisseurs and entrepreneurs from all over the world came together fueling the discussion and interchange of some of the most innovative ideas in contemporary cycling, forming what seems to be an excitingly promising future for both bike manufacturers and consumers.
For many years, many economies of the world have been dependent on fossil fuels as their primary source of energy. This heavy reliance on fossil fuels has had a toll on the environment. We have observed drastic changes in climatic patterns resulting from global warming, due to high levels of carbon emissions from engines running on fossil fuels. This has led to the adoption of electricity as a more environmentally friendly alternative source of energy.
We have had a boom in the number of people using E-bikes in the recent past. What makes these bikes unique is the fact that they run on an electric motor powered by lithium-ion batteries.
With this influx of E-bikes, the main question is whether or not these lithium-ion batteries can sustainably meet our energy needs.
Riding a bike is a fun way to decompress and unwind. Many health perks come with cycling down the street on your two-wheeler. Pedaling reduces the risk of stroke, enhances cardiovascular fitness, lowers stress levels and joint mobility and coordination, increases bone strength, and enhances cardiovascular fitness. But did you know that cycling, even for a brief period, can extend your life by a couple of years?
