The Gentleman’s Bicycle, Now a Thing

The Detroit Arrow: Shinola's first ever single speed

  • 16 March 2015

Come summer, Chicago’s motley cast of cyclists returns to the streets.

The meek Divvy rider. The intrepid bike messenger. The LSD weekend warrior in full spandex clearly overcompensating for something.

Then there’s you — uh, a man who defies categorization, right?

Right.

And here, a bike befitting of your station: the Detroit Arrow, the trusty new two-wheel steed from Shinola, released today.

Shinola, as you know, just opened in Wicker Park spitting distance from the 606, the elevated outdoor corridor of greenery opening by summer’s end.

And yes, there will be bike trails.

Made in collab with the high-end custom frame crafters at Waterford Precision Cycles, the Arrow is a good-lookin’ two-wheeler that’ll exact envy from every passerby.

Bang-about True Temper steel frame. Cork grips and leather saddle. The sleekness and simplicity of riding single speed.

Gotta love a city so flat.

With bike season already here, we suggest heading over to Shinola to check out the ride in-person.

Then get on it and make it your own.
