Shinola is a Detroit-based brand famous worldwide for its luxurious, high-quality timepieces, leather straps and bags, and bicycles. When it comes to the production of their bicycles, their attention to detail is second to none. Shinola puts their dedication to detail on full display in this Shinola Bicycle, called the Bixby, which has state-of-the-art disk breaks, Continental tires, custom Shinola leather seats called “saddles,” and custom leather handlebars, making it one of the most luxurious bicycles on the market. There’s even the option to order a bike and have it arrive fully assembled.
These Shinola bikes are truly some of the most comfortable and luxurious bicycles we’ve ever ridden. Every little detail, from the precision steering capabilities to the quick-stopping disk breaks, makes this bicycle a dream to ride. I’d expect nothing less from Shinola because they love to pamper their patrons, and they ensure every single detail is taken care of before, after, and during their purchases.
We could have selected any bike for our day-to-day riding, but we went for the finest, selecting Shinola, made right here in Detroit, because we knew they’d last a lifetime and were a great investment.
When we head up to Mackinac Island, the only island in the world that doesn’t allow automobile traffic, we will absolutely be bringing our Shinola bicycles along with us. These are some of the most luxurious bicycles on the market, that are as comfortable as they are stylish. I’ve never had a leather bike seat before, but after speaking to my brother-in-law who is something of a bicycle expert, he told me how leather seats may be uncomfrotable at first, but overtime comform to the rider. That’s definitely the case with these, and they’re more comfortable than any padded seat I’ve ever ridden.
