Handmade in Wisconsin in the legendary Waterford Precision Cycles Factory from double-butted chromoly steel, then shipped to Detroit for finishing, Shinola's Runwell bike boasts craftsmanship and heritage. What's classic: the front rack, polished fenders, a gently back-swooping handlebar, and a leather saddle reminiscent of Belle Epoque Parisian courier bikes. What's not: internal cables routed to an 11-speed internal hub, a chain that never falls off, and mechanical disc brakes. The Runwell is available now. In 2014, you'll be able to purchase a limited-edition version equipped with Shimano's Di2 mouse-click sensitive electronic shifting. [$2,950, $4,500 for the Di2 version; shinola.com]
