Holiday E-Blast

Hey, everyone! Hope you are staying sane during this crazy season!

Our Eastern Market winter location is up and running and we'd love for you to come visit. We are selling Detroit Bikes as well as a variety of American-made bicycle products.

We're located in a shipping container (which, honestly, is worth a vist in and of itself) in Eastern Market's Shed 4, located near the intersection of Russell and Division (MAP).

Our hours through the winter are as follows:

Friday & Monday: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. -- Saturday: 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. -- Sunday: Noon to 5 p.m.

We're also open this Thursday, 12/19, from 5 to 9 p.m. in conjuntion with Eastern Market's Third Thursday. Shed 5 will be host to a bunch of local vendors, food trucks and beer...Plus a visit from Kris Kringle...Perfect for some last-minute shopping!

We are really pleased with the high-quality, reasonably priced US-made products that we've found to offer at our shop. They include Wald baskets (KY); King Cage bottle cages, flask cages and bells (CO); Kabeltek lock cables (AZ); Wilson Bohannan padlocks (OH); Greenfield kickstands (NY); Walnut Studiolo leather accessories (OR); Detroit Cargo bicycle luggage (MI); Jogalite lights (NH); Park Tool bicycle-specific tools (MN); Trixie & Milo Fine Flasks (OR); panniers from Ironweed Bicycle Products (OR); Green Guru upcycled panniers and pouches (CO); pedal-powered all-natural Just Soap (MA); and embroidered wool Walz Caps (CA).

The Detroit Bikes A-Type 3-speed commuter bicycle has a lightweight chromoly-steel frame and a durable, matte-black powder-coat finish. Each of its frames is manufactured from steel tubing cut, coped, welded and painted in its factory on Detroit’s westside. Wheelhouse will also be offering an "A+" model that includes American-made lights, lock, kickstand, mirror, bottle cage and bell for the consumer that wants to ride away with a bike that is fully-loaded. The A-Type retails for $550; the A+ for $700.
