Madison Street Bike

A hand-made frame alongside some of the best components available, Detroit Bicycle Company’s Madison Street bike is probably the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. With the forks, stem, seatpost and steastays all plated in fine, golden copper, you’d almost be tempted to hang the Madison Street on your wall, and leave it there, for fear of it getting dirty. What a waste, however, that would be, and with prices for Detroit Bicycle Company’s bike around the $3,200 ballpark, you’ll want to get some use out of it too. All of their frames are made with Columbus SL CRO-Mo tubing and Nova lugs, while Campagnolo and Cinelli parts, track rims with Vittoria Zaffiro tires and a Brooks leather saddle fill out this model too. Unfortunately there’s shipping and import tax to add on if you’re far away from the States, but see if that’ll hold you back.
