As Loco Cycles continues to expand nationwide and abroad, we found ourselves here again 2nd year in a row, attending as an exhibitor at one of the largest cycling conventions on the globe, Interbike 2016. Being the largest cycling convention in North America, Interbike is responsible for influencing some of the most significant trends and developments in the Bike Biz. Like we mentioned before, 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.
With double the booth space from last year, we were able to showcase all our signature lines from the Loco Fixie®, the FG Cruiser®, to the Loco Beach Cruisers. And as our product line continues to expand, we were able to debut our 5-speed gear option for the FG Cruiser® line and a 7-speed gear option for our Loco Beach Cruiser line. However, it was our new 2017 Loco Fixie® line that got the most buzz at our booth. From the 'Oil Slick" finish to Copper-plated frame styles, the attendees enjoyed seeing our clever yet subtle watermark designs, as well as quality parts and components upgrades with not too crazy of a price jump.
This year's Interbike was held from Sep 21st - 23rd. As 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, we joined other bicycle companies, manufacturers, connoisseurs and entrepreneurs from all over the world to network, discuss and exchange ideas on the cycling market, passion, and lifestyle.
COVID-19 has had us social distancing and quarantining for so long that some of the most routine aspects of life have become obsolete. A night out with friends is, quite literally, out. Casual interactions with new acquaintances have gotten even more awkward — you'll be met with shaking heads if you try to shake hands.
Some days, it feels like we're forgetting what "normal" looks like. Despite this, it's more important than ever to maintain healthy habits and routines. And you know what they say... you never forget how to ride a bike.
The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown all of us for a loop. Some of our normal strategies for navigating everyday life are no longer safe, and "everyday life" is no longer recognizable.
In these unprecedented times of stress and confusion, we offer three life hacks to help get you power through this pandemic:
2020 has brought with it a myriad of challenges, the novel coronavirus being perhaps the most pressing. People around the world are struggling to live their everyday lives while staying healthy and reducing the spread of the disease. Even with a global pandemic, however, the world continues to spin. So do bike tires! But in slightly different ways.
