Shinola Detroit's stylish Runwell city bicycles take inspiration from the French Porteur bikes, which were primarily used by newspaper couriers. Taking inspiration from this classic frame, this limited edition design boasts some modern features that those original French couriers would have been very appreciative of. This includes an electronic shifting system, hydraulic breaks, as well as lights that are powered by pedaling the wheels.

The bike is designed to be a high-performance one, no matter what kind of weather conditions are outside, making it a low-maintenance machine that requires very little upkeep. Although it sources inspiration from France, the Runwell's frame is American-made and available in a variety of vibrant and fun colors to choose from.
