Detroit Bikes Unveils 7 New Models At Interbike
Detroit Bikes heads to Las Vegas with a full line of new bikes. Handcrafted from American steel, the entire line of Detroit Bikes is handcrafted in our Motor City factory. Expanding dramatically for 2017, Detroit Bikes offers multiple models, a full range of colors and countless custom options.
Headlining the expanded line is the new Ambassador, a classic machine built on the heritage of the Motor City. In addition, the all-new Cortello also debuts in Las Vegas. Designed to cut through urban traffic, the Cortello features more aggressive geometry, 8-speeds and disc brakes. Adding versatility and fun to the line is the drop-bar, single speed C-Type.
Returning as the foundation for the line is the classic 3-speed A and B-Types. Updated for 2017, they are now available with a rear hand brake (coaster brake option still available). Building on the successful foundation of the iconic A and B-Types, the lines have expanded to include a 8-speed derailleur versions.
This crown jewel in the line of Detroit Bikes is named for the storied Ambassador International Bridge, which welcomes travelers from Ontario, Canada to Detroit. This bridge is the busiest international border crossing in North America in terms of trade volume, said to be responsible for creating around 150,000 jobs in the area.
The Ambassador bicycle, which is built around our A-Type chassis, is perhaps the most authentically American-made production bicycle available today.
