Detroit’s only Bike Factory Will Manufacture Limited Edition Bikes in the Motor City

Detroit, Mich. – November 4, 2015 – Stimulating the local economy and advancing the made-in-America movement, Detroit Bikes has launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowd fund its newest bicycle, the C-Type.

The fan-funded campaign aims to raise $100,000 by November 30. Visit the campaign HERE. After opening its retail flagship in the heart of downtown Detroit earlier this year, America’s fastest growing bike manufacturer has set its sights on expanding its global reach.

“Kickstarter is a great way for us to launch a new model,” explained, Detroit Bikes founder and president, Zak Pashak. “Our supporters get first access to limited edition bikes or unique Detroit Bikes items and experiences. At the same time, funding this campaign enables Detroit Bikes to configure our factory for increased production and hire new staff.”

The C-Type is the latest addition to Detroit Bikes’ line of high-quality and affordable bicycles. Retailing for $599, it’s a simple and solid single-speed road bike. Without derailleurs or other gearing systems, it has fewer parts that require maintenance, making it ideal for city commuting or recreational riding in all weather.  

The C-Type is the latest edition to the company’s line of American-made bicycles. Joining the A-Type and B-Type, all three models are manufactured in Detroit Bikes’ 50,000 square-foot factory in Detroit. Available to Kickstarter supporters only, funders can grab limited edition, numbered collectors editions of the C-Type in six unique colors - hunter green, fluorescent yellow, flat black, royal blue, mint green or chrome.
