Pre-order your Ambassador today! Shipping in January 2017, the crown jewel in the line of Detroit Bikes is named for the storied Ambassador International Bridge, which welcomes travelers from Ontario, Canada to Detroit. This bridge is the busiest international border crossing in North America in terms of trade volume, said to be responsible for creating around 150,000 jobs in the area.

The Ambassador bicycle, which is built around our A-Type chassis, is perhaps the most authentically American-made production bicycle available today. 

• Detroit Bikes’ A-Type frame, made from American-made 4130 CrMo steel, cut, welded, and powder coated in our own 50,000 square foot factory in Detroit, Michigan.
• Wheels are built in our own Detroit factory, using Velocity Atlas rims, made in Florida.
• Paul’s Components’ beautiful crankset, made in California.
• Leather saddle with copper rivets from Selle Anatomica, made in California.
• Greenfield kickstand, made in New York.
• Spurcycle’s bell, the benchmark, made in California.
• Sizes: M and L
• Color: Cream

Following the mantra of Detroit Bikes from day one, the Ambassador is a simple, durable, elegant, easy-to-use example of clean transportation. The difference is that it’s our first bike to retail over $1,000, for cyclists looking for the best and most advanced componentry. From the gorgeous Nitto stem, to copper and leather Brooks hand-grips, to the Alfine internally geared 8-speed drivetrain, beauty is in the details.

We strongly recommend you have your new bike shipped to a certified bike mechanic for assembly. Please enter the address of your favorite bike shop as your shipping address we will refund $50 off your order to help pay for assembly. Find your local authorized Detroit Bikes dealer at
