Shop updates

Today the shop received a much needed upgrade. I installed a furnace after first knocking a hole through the cinder block wall.  Four hours of hammer and chisel the furnace fit like a glove.  Next up, dig a 100 foot long trench and lay some black pipe.

Wheelman Truck

The boys and I got to test ride three of Coker Cycle Company's Wheelman truck bicycles this weekend.  It's 36" wheel takes some getting use to but once you make a few turns the wheelman trucks are a blast.  Our posse hit the streets in style and it only took a block before a unsanctioned race broke out, and yes these bad boys freewheel.  Helmet highly recommended.

In The Rack... or on car jacks

We recently finished repairs on a pair of pedi cabs.  Not often we need car jacks and stands to do bike repairs but they were slightly to large for out traditional bicycle stand.  Not the easiest repair considering the shop is slightly over 300 sq ft but the test rides were a blast. image

Detroit Bikes launches web store

Detroit bikes is now live and taking online pre orders.

Detroitbikes.com

We build a bike for people who haven’t forgotten how to ride one, and by that we mean everyone. We build it in a city with manufacturing expertise and deep traditions that include bicycle production, touring, recreational riding, commuting & racing. The prototype was constructed in a coach house off Woodward Avenue, a couple of blocks from where Henry Ford once lived. We manufacture every frame at our factory in West Detroit. We weld them here. We paint, assemble and package them here.

Recent Repair.

We recently had an old Fuji com in for an overhaul, and were quick to find the rear quick release axle was broken in half.  It being memorial weekend were low on replacement axles so we found a longer axel cut it to size, re-threaded, filed square and viola we had a custom axel in time for the customer to go out of town.
