The Women's Runwell

Only {{::product.qty}} left!
View Size Guide

Inspired by the enduring French style of Porteur bicycles, first used by newspaper couriers in Paris, The Runwell delivers a classic blend of urban style and practicality. Meticulously designed to yield the best characteristics of a lugged steel frame and fork, we've engineered The Runwell to handle predictably and smoothly for city riding, commuting and errand running.

Virtually maintenance free, courtesy of the high-end Shimano Alfine 11-speed internal hub and disc brakes, daily riders will rarely need to worry about adjustment, maintenance or exposure to rain and snow. Internal cable routing keeps the cables out of sight and out of the elements. Custom laser-cut rear dropouts feature the Shinola “S,” which matches the same “S” detail cast in our proprietary fork crown.

Each component is fitted by hand and tested for quality precision. This close attention to detail ensures that every bicycle that ships from our Detroit workshop delivers impeccable reliability and craftsmanship.
