The Detroit Bikes C-Type

Henry Ford II is a frame builder in Detroit, looking to Kickstart his business in a big way…

“Inspired by the bikes of Copenhagen but with a distinctly Detroit flavor, we designed the C-Type to be the ultimate city bike.

It was important to us that this bike was simple to use, low maintenance, and fun. Unlike the cheap throwaway bikes that unfortunately flood the market, this is a throwback. A well made, highly functional bike that will get you riding. This is a bike you will enjoy using for the rest of your life.

The C-Type is a single speed bike with a flip flop hub that can be converted to fixed-gear. It features a classic road bike frame, drop handlebars and knobby tires for better traction. This is a utility bike- the bike you would use for errands, or going out for a night on the town. …a good way to stay healthy while saving money on parking or cabs. ”
