There are a lot of bikes out there, but how many are "Made in Detroit?" Not many, probably. Not yet, anyway.
But here they come, thanks to Zak Pashak, who moved down here to cycling utopia from Western Canada to open a bicycle manufacturing center.
An excerpt from HuffPost Detroit:
His target customers are people who aren't hardcore cyclists but are still interested in bikes.The model he plans on producing in Detroit will be a lightweight steel three-speed with a tire that's thicker than those used for racing bikes. The bike will come in one color -- black-- and sell for a little under $500.
Black, yes. We'll take (at least) one. See the rest of the story here
