Republic Bike | Built by the People

about republic bike
republics are built by the people
Just like the people who ride them, bikes come in all shapes and sizes.  Generally, they're designed for utility:  a go fast, down the mountain, get to work or cruise the town tool. Unfortunately, they usually look about as snappy as a tool too.  At Republic Bike, we decided to shake up familiar aesthetic conceits and expectations of what a bike should look like.  In fact, we decided to leave it up to you. The only tools we offer here are those to let your creativity go for a ride. You pick, choose, swap and decide, and we'll build it, box it, and ship it out. It's a bike we design and build together.  It's built by us & you.

We keep it bold and simple, clean and colorful, whimsical and elegant.  Our bikes are practical, affordable, and meant to make you smile.  So we encourage you to play!  Take a spin, twirl and zoom in our 3D Bike Shop. Experiment with something outrageous or keep it muted.  Keep designing until you're ready, and we'll wrench your dream into a two-wheeled, rolling reality.  Give it a spin.

When we're not busy assembling your custom build, we're outfitting our corporate friends with handsome transportation as well. We extend our built by us & you designs to certain corporate customers needing something as unique as they are.  Check out some of our corporate and promotional programs.  Also, take a look at some of the attention we've received by leaving the designing up to you.

Republic Bike Aristotle Fixed Gear Bike
Plato® Dutch bikes
The satisfying spirit of the Dutch bike is upright and relaxed, practical and pleasant ... and Platoagrees. The Plato Dutch bicycle is designed as a mix of retro styling and modern twists – because a dose of whimsy arouses just the right attitude for these bikes.
not your grandma's omafiets
Plato is a daily delight – from the morning errand to the ride home from an evening with friends. For the Plato, being Dutch is about your pose, and our Dutch bicycle is designed to let you sit upright, chest lifted, head high. It's a graceful act, and Plato radiates joy with every revolution.
So whether you're looking to spread the mirth on your commute or carry home that load in style, hop on, grip those swept-back bars and ride.
Plato is available in many flavors: 1-speed or 3-speed, step-thru or diamond. For details and specifications or to build a custom Plato, clickhere.
Aristotle® singlespeeds
In the spirit of simple machines and bold design, Republic Bike offers the Aristotle singlespeed bicycles. With clean lines and components,Aristotle is a balance of value and beauty.  A singular beauty with pleasing angles and sensible outfitting, Aristotle is a multi-purpose, simple, practical ride at a beautiful price. 
fixed or free – you decide
Aristotle is a singlespeed bicycle with a fixed/free hub.  Fixed gear or track bikes have their rear cog attached or "fixed" to the rear wheel.  A fixed gear bicycle is essentially a singlespeed bicycle. However, singlespeed bikes allow the rider to coast without pedaling, but on a fixed gear bicycle you can't coast without pedaling. So, you're always pedaling on a fixed-gear bicycle.
If it's new to you, riding a fixed gear bicycle takes a bit of getting used to.  However, the Aristotlecomes standard with a fixed/free dual hub. So if you're new to a fixed gear bike, or need the comfort of the occasional coast, Aristotle serves both purposes. Flip around your rear wheel anytime to switch from fixed to not. Or not to fixed. And back.  Fix or free - you decide.
Aristotle is available in several different configurations. For details and specifications or to build a custom Aristotle, click here.
