Detroit’s Shinola Starts Shipping Bikes, First Dealers On Board
The Runwell is shipping in Red (above) in size 55, retail is $3,500. Frame is chromoly and comes as shown with fenders, front rack, chainguard, disc brakes and Shimano Alfine 11 internally geared hub. Also available is the Bixby, a curvier cruiser-looking commuter bike, shown below. It gets a 3-speed rear hub, disc brakes and fenders, but no racks. Both are available directly through Shinola until more retailers are set up.
Speaking of which, Golden Saddle (LA), One By One (Minneapolis), American Cyclery (San Francisco), and Copenhagen Cycles (Chicago) are signed on already, and they expect about 20 dealers to be set up by February 1.
The Bixby is available in Men’s 57 in Char for now. More sizes and colors in both will follow.
