The Axel is a Sport Utility Vehicle.
Some bike customers want more of everything and this is our answer for them.
The bike has more gears than you need, front suspension, an over-sized aluminum frame, disc brakes, and giant tires. Unlock your inner child and go have some fun, on or off-road.
The Axel is packaged in the Detroit factory with their customers in mind. Home final assembly is a breeze.
Attach the quick-release front wheel, install the pedals, adjust the seat, and you’re ready to ride.
Full tires are important, so we include a free Detroit Bikes floor pump with every order.
