We love the easy style that a cruiser bike implies, but not the impracticality of the slack frame geometry and cumbersome handling. The Bixby riffs off the fun look of the curved top tube, but improves on the fit and function with nimble frame geometry and a Shimano 3-speed internal hub. The American-made steel frame and fork are designed for comfort, utility and smooth urban riding, in dry or wet. The Bixby is offered in both a classic men's and women's frame design, with thoughtful touches like gender-specific saddle design and proportional geometry. Like The Bixby's big brother, the Runwell, The Bixby frame has custom Shinola dropouts, fork crown, rack and fender mounts and internal cable routing. Style. Performance. Smooth. Efficient. The Bixby has it all. Available in char, mauve, taupe and teal.

The Process

The heart and soul of a Shinola bicycle begins in the legendary Waterford Precision Cycles factory in Wisconsin, where our frames and forks are individually handcrafted by experts using double-butted cro-moly steel.Once shipped to our Detroit workshop, they undergo a custom-level assembly by our bike specialists, and each component is fitted by hand and tested for precision. This close attention to each and every detail ensures that every bicycle that ships from our Detroit workshop delivers impeccable reliability and an unbeatably smooth and responsive ride.

Balance Spring

Also referred to as a “hair spring” because of its thinness, the balance spring swings the balance wheel back and forth to regulate accurate time in a mechanical watch. Read More

Balance Wheel

Similar to a pendulum, the balance wheel in a mechanical watch oscillates at a steady pace to divide and regulate time in even units. The balance wheel is moved by the mainspring at its center, and drives the escapement. Read More


The cylinder that holds the watches mainspring. The barrel uses a toothed rim to drive the train. Some watches feature double barrels to maximize power reserves. Read More


The ring (often made of steel) that encircles the watch face and secures the crystal to the watch. Some bezels provide additional function. See “Turning Top-ring Bezel.” Read More

Bi-Directional Rotating Bezel

The ring that surrounds the watch dial, often referred to as a “rotating bezel,” a bi-directional rotationg bezel is turned clockwise or counter clockwise to track elapsed time and to make mathematical calculations. Read More


A metal watchband with removable links for sizing. Read More


Mounts fixed to the main plate that form the frame of the watch movement. Read More


The calendar is a complication that shows the date, and sometimes the days and months the year. Less common perpetual calendars account for varying month lengths and leap year cycles. Read More


Sometimes spelled “calibre,” a caliber is a letter and number combination code that typically denotes the manufacturer and movement type of a watch. Read More


Sometimes referred to as the “body” of the watch, the case, typically made of metal, houses all the mechanical and display components. Read More


The reverse side of a watch case that lies against the skin. Affixed to the case back with four rivets, the iconic Shinola case back plate displays manufacturing information, such as a laser-etched serial number. Read More


A watch with stopwatch function to measure elapsed time while continuing to display conventional time, often using independent subdials operated by start, stop and reset push-pieces. Read More


A complication is any watch feature that indicates more than the basic time, such as dates, chronographs, moon dials, etc. Read More


The knob on the outside of the watch for setting the time and date, and, in some cases, for winding the mainspring. Many Shinola watches feature a screw-down for added water resistance. Read More


The protective, transparent cover that sits over the watch dial, protecting the watch from external elements. All Shinola watches feature premium, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, as opposed to glass, acrylic, plastic or quartz. Read More

A watch with a complication that displays both the day of the week and the day of the month. Read More

Deployant Buckle

A buckle, typically part of a metal bracelet, that opens and clasps shut on hinges. Sometimes referred to as a “foldover buckle” or “deployment clasp,” a deployant buckle is designed to slide simply onto the wrist when open, and to secure the watch to the wrist when closed. Read More


The dial, or the watch “face,” features the numbers, indices and markers that indicate time based on the position of the hands. Read More

Dual Timer

A watch that simultaneously measures time in more than one time zone, via either extra hands or subdials. Dual timer watches are often used by frequent world travelers. Read More
