The A-Type

A-Type

Yes, there is a bicycle manufactured in the motor city.


SPECS & DETAILS


Whether you commute twenty miles a week or haven’t touched a bicycle in twenty years, The A-Type is built 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.

We cut, cope, bend, weld, paint, assemble and package each bike in our 50,000 square-foot factory in west Detroit. And you? You ride them joyfully wherever the road takes you.

The best way to buy Detroit Bikes is to stop by a shop in your city and take it for a test drive. However, you may also order directly online.

We prefer to ship your bicycle to a local shop for assembly. The bike will need the seat, pedals, handlebars, front wheel, front rim, and caliper brake attached and we recommend finding a trained bike mechanic to set this up for you. They will test the bike and make sure everything is safe. We are glad to refund your shipping fee on orders sent directly to bike shops to help offset the cost of assembly.
