Portland might have lost its namesake bike; but there are still plenty of products that owe their inspiration to our great city. Local parts distributor Cyclone Bicycle Supply recently launched a new line of locks under the PDX Lox brand name.
Cyclone's Inside Sales Manager Matt Case says there are four lock models (two u-locks, two cable locks) under the new label. The locks were developed in partnership with Kryptonite and they come with all the same theft protection warranties that company offers on their own popular line of locks. (Just like Kryptonite locks, Case says, once you've registered your bike and lock online, you can file a claim in the event of a theft and get up to $1,000 if your bike gets stolen.)
The PDX Lox u-locks come in two styles, the "Hood" ($32 MSRP) and the smaller "St. Helens" ($30)
Case says the Portland-centric branding is a nod to the city and the Pacific Northwest in general. "It's where this company has always been," he says, "and we're proud to be a part of the bike industry in Portland and proud to be active in the Portland bike community."
Cyclone sells parts and accessories to hundreds of dealers nationwide, with a big chunk of their business coming from shops in the Portland region. Ask for PDX Lox at your favorite local bike shop and learn more at CycloneBicycle.com.
