Easy to use bikes made with high quality standards.

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’ A-Type and B-Type bike 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 three speeds and comes in one color. Although we like things as simple as possible there are ample braze-ons to allow for customization.
