Guide: Where To Buy A Bike In Detroit


Guide: Where To Buy A Bike In Detroit

Whether you want to get some fresh air, sneak in some of your daily exercise, or simply avoid traffic, biking is a great- and green- way to get around downtown Detroit.  Next time you are in the market for a new bike (or need to tune up your faithful ride), make sure to stop by one of these great local bicycle stores.


Detroit Bikes // 1216 Griswold St. Detroit, MI 48226 (Downtown)

The only brand of bikes named for, and manufactured, within the city of Detroit has a storefront in the middle of downtown.  The manufacturer and retailer makes bikes to suit every lifestyle and interest level.


Downtown Bike Shop // 412 Peterboro Detroit, MI 48201 (Midtown)

With two convenient locations, Downtown Bike Shop is the perfect place to purchase a new or used bike- plus all of the accessories you would want.


The Hub of Detroit // 3611 Cass Ave. Detroit, MI 48201 (Midtown)

Give back to the community while you get new wheels at The Hub of Detroit.  In addition to offering bike and part sales, repair and restoration services, as well as custom body work, the store gives 100% of its proceeds to support programing for Back Alley Bikes.   The organization seeks to develop youth’s bicycling and leadership skills in the city of Detroit.


Wheelhouse Detroit // 1340 Atwater St. Detroit, MI 48207 (Rivertown) + 9401 Joseph Campau, Hamtramck, MI 48212

Interested in biking more frequently but don’t want to invest in a whole new bike?  Wheelhouse Detroit might have the perfect solution.  While they do have bikes for sale, Wheelhouse also rents bikes that accommodate to a range of ages and skill levels.  See downtown in a whole new way on the Haunted Detroit or Eastern Market bike tour, offered special by Wheelhouse.


Shinola // 441 W Canfield St. Detroit, MI 48201 (Midtown)

Commute to work in style on a Shinola bike.  If you are in the market for a high end street, be sure to schedule a test ride at the Shinola store in Midtown!
