We pay close attention to details in designing a complete city bike that offers all the features you need for simple yet highly functional city riding. Our PUBLIC bikes are:

  • Lightweight steel frame - durable enough to last a lifetime and withstand the bumps of city riding, but light enough to carry a flight of stairs. Many other city bikes are made of aluminum, which isn't as durable and doesn't absorb riding over potholes as well as steel. And unlike the traditional Dutch bikes that weigh 45 pounds, our PUBLIC bikes are light enough to carry up a flight of stairs.

  • Complete with fenders and chain guard to protect your clothes, plus a sturdy kickstand.

  • Tire width wide enough to soften your ride, but narrow enough for speed.

  • Comfortable seats and handlebar positioning offers an upright seating position for greater riding visibility.

  • Our multi-speed bikes feature easy gear shifting with the simple twist of your wrist.

  • All our multi-gear bikes provide the range you need to ride comfortably up hills. If we can comfortably ride our PUBLIC bikes in San Francisco where we live and work, we think you'll have no problem climbing most hills in your hometown.

  • On all our internally geared PUBLIC bikes - PUBLIC C7i, PUBLIC V7i, PUBLIC D, and PUBLIC M models - we've incorporated reflective stripe tires for nighttime side visibility.

  • Matching rear racks and an array of front basket options are simple add-on features to your bike.


Designed with all kinds of people in mind:

  • The everyday bicyclist who regularly rides to work and around town.
  • The person who doesn’t identify themselves as a bicyclist but wants a simple, sturdy bicycle for occasional errands, trips to the Farmer’s Market, or weekend rides in the park.
  • The newbie who is buying an adult bike for the first time who wants to recapture the joy they felt while riding as a kid.

But most importantly, we design our bikes for ourselves. All of us at PUBLIC are enthusiasts about bicycles for everyday people so our high design standard is very simple – we’d never produce a bicycle that we wouldn’t ride ourselves or recommend to our friends.

We take great pride that our customers love their PUBLIC bikes and we've been featured in numerous national publications.
