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.
Whether you are a leisurely bike rider or consider more of a passion, all riders should be in the habit of regularly cleaning their bike. Simply put, a clean bike looks betters, operates better, and will last longer.
Even if you are using your bike just to cruise to the beach or around town, Bicycling.com recommends, "Cleaning your road bike monthly (or every 20 to 25 rides) and a mountain or 'cross bike more often". So, while it may be easier just to put your bike back in the garage after a few rides, making an effort to wash your bike monthly (even if it doesn't look dirty) can really help extend the life of your bike and help with day to day operation of the bike!
Sometimes the world seems so dangerous. We worry about accidents, cancer, and criminals potentially lurking around the corner. Actually, there's a much quieter, much closer concern that many of us overlook.
Inactivity is currently the world's fourth leading cause of death. It's a problem often confused and conflated with laziness and personal choice, but in reality the issue is geographic, systemic, and woven into the structure of modern living. (EuroNews)
That statement may sound shocking, but the numbers back it up.
