Detroit may be bankrupt, but things are still being built there. Ask Shinola. The new Detroit-based brand is making a name for itself with a range of “built in Detroit” products, from watches to leather goods to bicycleslike the spectacular looking, and entirely hand-made Runwell. One of three current Shinola bike models, Runwell “…delivers a classic blend of urban style and practicality. Meticulously designed to yield the best characteristics of a lugged steel frame and fork, engineered to handle predictably and smoothly for city riding, commuting and errand running.” Such laudable features don’t come cheaply, of course, but then nothing made to last does.
