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 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.

Detroit Bikes are carried in bike shops that specialize in providing urban commuter bicycles to folks just like you. Check out our list of retailers to see what is available in your city.

If you would like us to get in touch with your favorite local bike shop about Detroit Bikes or are interested in carrying Detroit Bikes in your shop feel free to contact us here.


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.
