No longer just about racing.
Interloc Racing Design had its start in 1984. In the mid to late 80's it created components that have been considered on the forefront of mountain bike design. Mountain Bike Magazine called its products the "best of good old' American innovation and craftsmanship."
Pioneering functional ideas is what has kept a small company like Interloc going for as long as it has. A reputation for craftsmanship that has been built through word-of-mouth (and not slick ads) has surely helped also.
We are no longer in the "machine shop in the tool shed" mode, but we are still small outfit and still in the chase for great ideas to benefit that marvelous invention - the bicycle. Currently we see ourselves creating high quality components for serious riders, especially hard to find parts that the larger manufacturers have forgotten about. Whatever strikes us as being a true need of the cyclist, you can count on us to look into it.
