Detroit bikes has stuck to the basics, in the best way, “Riding a bike should be simple.” Whether your commute is forty miles to-and-from work every day, or if you haven’t touched a bike in what feels like forever, they have built a bicycle with you in mind. These wonderful bikes are light as well as very strong. The beautiful design is minimalist with features that enhance quality of ride and durability.

Detroit Bikes’ A-Type and B-Type bikes fit anyone between 5’3”-6’3”. They come with slightly larger wheels, which means the bike rides smoothly. Coupling the kick-back/foot and hand brakes ensures full control and safe braking power. Each bike comes with a 3-speed internal hub, so you don’t have the excess of a derailleur and external gears to worry about. They have built this bicycle to be as simple as possible, but they added ample braze-ons to allow for customization.
