Our customers share how well their PUBLIC bikes function
"When I test rode a PUBLIC, I fell in love with one thing above all else: Its silence. The fenders didn't ping. The shifting was crisply adjusted. The brakes never squalled. Silence tells the tale for a bike elitist, and for PUBLIC it told a very pleasing tale. They ride like bikes much more expensive than what they are."
“I just received my PUBLIC today, this was as exciting as getting my Schwinn Corvette, when I was ten!! Light weight, agile, fast, and the ergonomics rival the European bikes at a much better value. I had it up and running in about 1 1/2 hrs. (I’m a novice assembler). Did I say that the quality and paint job is unsurpassed.”
“My new PUBLIC bike rides like a king, and did so from the first pedal stroke. It makes my daily rides through over the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan more quiet, more efficient and more fun.”
“The bike is a WOW. The family thinks it’s a WOW. Hannah wanted to know how she could get hers, this from a girl who has previously turned her nose up at anything without an engine in a car designed by Germans. And the gears are AMAZING – really solid with exquisitely smooth transition.”

“Okay – I'm properly impressed. This is pretty much the bike I've spent the last 2 years looking for. I took a little spin that made me smile. It was very quiet – that surprised me.”
“I love my PUBLIC bike and I love riding it throughout the City. The experience feels different than with my other bikes - the PUBLIC's form and function seems perfectly designed for enjoyable transportation-focused riding. During almost every ride I receive compliments about the bike. Buying my PUBLIC felt different than my other bike purchases; the sales process felt well-designed and appropriate for bikes for transportation rather than recreation. I continue to love my bike and its color; my other bikes are literally collecting dust.”
- Michael Michaud, Developer & Consultant, San Francisco
“My PUBLIC ride is incredibly smooth and comfortable. I feel like I'm gliding through the streets. Most importantly, it feels sturdy and safe. I can't believe how light it is considering how it rides all of NYC's street conditions.”
"Nearly a year since purchasing my PUBLIC D3, I have logged more than a thousand miles on it commuting to and from work in Columbus, OH - even in 15 degree weather. I am on my original tires and have only done light preventative maintenance. If you're on the fence as to whether to buy one, trust me you won't regret it."
