2016 Detroit Bikes B-Type Commuter (Step-Thru)

Riding a bike should be simple. Whether you are commuting twenty miles to work everyday or haven’t touched a bike in fifteen years, Detroit Bikes builds with you in mind. They're 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 bikes will fit you. The slightly larger wheels mean their 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.
