Shinola is dedicated to reviving industry in Detroit, one of America’s historic centres of trade and manufacturing that has suffered economically with high rates of unemployment for a generation or more. Shinola is “reclaiming the making of things that are made well”, reclaiming American-made products, reviving lost skills and the local economy by creating new jobs and training employees in skilled work.

All Shinola bicycles are hand assembled by experts in their Detroit Flagship retail store, using only the highest quality components available. The frames are produced in Wisconsin by the American steel bicycle frame producers, Waterford, and their assembly all happens in Detroit.

Supporting local American industry also has a positive impact on the environment, with materials and products being transported for shorter distances. Cycle on, friends!
