Ready To Ride Shipping

Get your bike delivered to your door 99% assembled.


If you live far from one of our PUBLIC retail stores or PUBLIC dealers, we highly recommend our Ready to Ride shipping option. With Ready to Ride shipping, the bicycle is shipped directly to your home or office and arrives 99% assembled, within 7-10 business days, depending on where you live. We have other delivery options too.

You'll receive a bike that's been fine-tuned by our professional bike mechanics and packaged with care. It will arrive 99% assembled with the wheels in place. All you need to do is unwrap the bike, complete a few simple assembly steps, and be riding in less than 10 minutes. With our Ready to Ride option, it takes longer to unpack the bike from the box than it does to complete the final steps to attach the pedals and tighten the handlebar. In our years shipping bikes Ready to Ride around the country, we've never had anyone contact us and tell us they don't know what to do to complete the finishing touches. It's that easy.


Absolutely in love with my new #publicbikes mixte! It's so pretty that we keep it in the living room :) @publicbikes @tharpey


Ready to Ride shipping is also our recommended solution for gift purchases to be sent anywhere in the contiguous US for a flat fee of $135 per bike. (Due to extra weight and dimensions, electric bikes ship Ready to Ride for $325.)

Inside the box you’ll find your bike, the seat with the seat post, the handle bars with the steering stem, as well as a parts box containing two pedals, a three-way hex Allen wrench, a 15 millimeter wrench, touch-up paint and an owner’s manual. This is all you need, other than a knife or scissors to open the box.

There is also a one-page assembly guide included in the box, all designed to make it easy for anyone. Our friends who aren't "mechanically-inclined" are amazed how easy it is to turn and tighten the handlebars, attach the pedals, and start riding in 10 minutes after opening your box. Our expert bike mechanics have already done all the hard work, you just give it the finishing touches with a few simple steps.

Read what our customer Rick has to say about Ready to Ride shipping:

"I received my FedEx shipment today as scheduled and just got through assembling my wife's Christmas present, an orange M8. We are now a two PUBLIC M8 family. Assembly was simple, especially when I followed directions. Your tools and touch up paint set are a very nice touch, especially the way the tools match the orange bike. Slick. This direct Ready to Ride shipment option is really the way to go. You clearly take more care putting your bikes together than my local wrench turners."

We also provide you 10 innovative ways to transform your cardboard bike box after you've finished assembling your bike.
