Detroit Bikes A Type in Santa Barbara
The Detroit Bikes A Type is a city bike fit for a bicyclist. Weighing in at a mere 29 pounds with the bike rack attached, the fully steel A-Type can be ridden comfortably upright in a beach-cruiser position or pushed to the limit by riders who are used to higher speeds. For those who appreciate a higher level of craftsmanship in their bikes, they will not be disappointed by Detroit Bike’s manufacturing. High quality, hand TIG-welded chromoly steel ensures lightweight toughness and durability that will last for years. The stiff, but responsive frame has dialed-in symmetry and transfers power easily from the drive, allowing strong-legged riders to reach impressive speeds for this class of frame (feel free to get out of the saddle). A curved top tube and long quill enable this bike to quickly accommodate a wide range of rider heights. This is the perfect bike for anyone looking for a city ride experience to complement that of their performance bike. -VP ($699, detroitbikes.com)
