Johnny Loco is a company located in the Netherlands that creates beautiful city bikes of both the human-powered and motorized variety. Their bikes are ultra-rare in the States and that’s too bad because they offer a certain flavor that is missing from city bikes sold on our shores.
This is why it was so surprising to spy a Johnny Loco for sale locally (at least locally for me) on Craigslist. The bike looks brand-spanking new and the seller’s ad explains the bike was used for filming and has never been ridden on the street. I would seriously consider making an offer but my somewhat secluded location and being forced to use the ultra-sketchy Somis Road to get to town has tempered my enthusiasm. But what about you?
If you have a straight shot (and adequate bike lanes) to your local downtown, school or neighbors, this is a unique, stylish ride that lets you leave the car in the garage. Check it out before it’s gone.
