Description: Shinola first started making watches and then expanded into other American made or assembled categories, one of which being bicycles. Most know Shinola as being based in Detroit, but their bicycle department is actually based in Wisconsin. Shinola demands a high price for their high style and brand recognition. Shinola prides themselves on offering a low maintenance bicycle that rarely needs to be adjusted, maintained or worried about, even in rain or snow. A lion's share of Shinola's bicycles are manufactured in the United States of America, even if it means sourcing product from all over the country. Shinola bicycles come with a limited warranty.
