Details

Riding a bike should be simple. Whether you are commuting twenty miles to work everyday or haven’t touched a bike in fifteen years, we build with you in mind. Detroit Bikes are light and strong. Minimalist bikes with features that enhance durability and quality of ride.

If you’re between 5’3 and 6’3, Detroit Bikes will fit you. The slightly larger wheels mean our bikes ride smoothly. Coupling foot and hand brakes ensures full control and safe braking power. Each bike has Shimano's NEXUS Internal 3-speed gear hub Although we like things as simple as possible there are ample braze-ons to allow for customization. A Vintage-styled riveted saddle and rear rack complete the package.
