A friendly reminder that Pedal Revolution will be closed beginning on December 24th through January 3rd. We will re-open for business Sunday January 4th.
Thanks for a great 2014! We look forward to serving you bicycling needs in the new year.
The folks at Detroit Bikes sent Pedal Revolution a couple of their bicycles to check out recently. The craftsmanship and styling of these bikes is excellent. The full 4130 chromoly steel frame sets are welded from start to finish in Detroit, Michigan. This is a unique thing in the bike industry where most bicycles and bicycle parts are produced overseas. It’s exciting to see a small company with a business plan that is based around US manufacturing.
Detroit nailed the look with two classically styled bikes. The Type A and Type B are both are comfortable upright city bikes complete with fenders, rear rack, chain guard, mid-width all weather tires, matte powder coat finish, and Shimano Nexus three speed internally geared drivetrains.

Pedal Rev just built up this New Albion Starling step-though frame set into a perfect daily rider. We set up as a 1 x 9 speed with a well-rounded gear ratio. A comfortable upright handlebar and stem are the basis for the cockpit with shop favorites -shellacked cork grips and Tektro classic levers. Plenty of room for fenders, racks, and baskets on this bike for d0-all errand running. New Albion is a San Francisco based bike company that produce versatile steel framed bikes with attention to detail.
This one is a 52cm and would be a great fit for a rider 5’2″ to 5’5″.

Upon immediate viewing, some aesthetic purists may be put-off by the visually incongruous, new but narrow and deep wheels on this this otherwise low-profile urban conveyor. If offended, these aesthetes should redirect their gaze to the practical amenities the bike is outfitted with:
Full Fenders (front and rear!). You will be very happy to have these when it is raining but even when it is droughting, they look smart and let others know you practical and are ready for conditions to change.
Fenders are called “Mud Guards” in the British English idiom
Art Deco Rear Rack!
Greenfield Kickstand – Made in the USA
A Great Bike for a rider about 5’6″ – 5’10” tall.
56cm (top tube) – $445
