Detroit Bicycles

Whether you are commuting twenty miles to work everyday or haven’t touched a bike in fifteen years, Detroit builds with you in mind.

Detroit Bikes are built in a city with manufacturing prowess and deep traditions of bicycle production, touring, recreational riding, commuting, and racing. The prototype was constructed in a coach house off Woodward Avenue, a couple of blocks from where Henry Ford once lived.

Detroit cuts, copes, bends, welds, paints, assembles and packages each bike in it's 50,000 square-foot factory in west Detroit. And you? You ride them joyfully wherever the road takes you.
