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. Available in both men’s and women’s models and meticulously designed to yield the best characteristics of a lugged steel frame and fork, the Runwell is engineered for predictable and smooth handling on any terrain. The internal cable routing and virtually maintenance-free Shimano Alfine 11-speed internal hub mean daily riders will rarely need to worry about adjustment, upkeep or exposure to the elements. With a hand-built frame and fork, responsive handling, unrivaled stopping power and classic styling—the Runwell is truly a unique and worthy voice in the crowd.
Shinola was conceived with the belief that products should be well made and built to last. As makers of modern watches, bicycles, journals and leather goods, Shinola stands for skill at scale, the preservation of craft and the beauty of industry.Learn More
