Polk dots are a decorative element that we rarely associate with the Holiday season, and that's precisely why we are introducing them right now. They have a habit of cropping up in the most unexpected situations. And when they do they almost always bring a smile on our faces. We sell helmets with dots, but this is our first bike. The red polka dot print is on our most popular 7-speed step-through city bike the PUBLIC C7. It's a limited edition one-time shot, and a great way to put a smile on someones face for the holidays.

Once you start looking for them they crop up in many places. You have to respect Polka Dots for their audacity as well as their humor. Unlike their cousin Stripes for example, they ignore the form they attach themselves to and steal our eyes attention. They play with us.

The PUBLIC C7 is our most popular, lightweight, seven-speed bike. The PUBLIC C7 features matching color inside rims, color coordinated cable housing, cream tires, and optional matching rear racks.

The PUBLIC C7 is a fashion-forward bike with a retro-feel. With its curved, open, step-through frame design, it is often referred to as a Dutch bike. It is especially well suited for those who wear skirts or prefer not to swing a leg over a typical frame crossbar.

The versatile PUBLIC C7 turns heads everywhere it goes. You can dress up or dress down, but you'll always look good riding this step-thru bike The PUBLIC C7 is perfect for commuter and casual riding - for carrying groceries, going to a meeting in a suit or dress, or just kicking around with friends.

Signature PUBLIC features include lightweight, durable steel-frame, along with featherweight aluminum chain guard and sturdy steel fenders to keep your clothes clean. You can add a PUBLIC rack to carry a pannier, basket, or bungee your items. The easy-shifting, seven-speed city derailleur system takes you virtually anywhere and back, even up and down the toughest hills of San Francisco. Put simply, the PUBLIC C7 rides like butter.

We make delivery and assembly easy for you, including our unique Ready to Ride option that allows anyone to assemble a PUBLIC bike at their home or office in minutes (tools included).

Details

  • Comfortable: Steel tubing and frame geometry make for a softer ride than with other materials. Seats are designed for normal clothing.
  • Ergonomic: Upright handlebars keep you looking forward, not down. They're also kinder to your back.
  • Practical: Kickstands so you don't have to prop your bike up against a lamppost. And chain guards to keep grease off your fresh, clean clothes.
  • Modern: The Shimano 7-speed rear derailleur and Revo twist shifter brings state-of-the-art technology to the shifting system. Changing gears is done with a simple twist of the wrist.
  • Safe Braking:Alloy brakes combine with lightweight alloy rims with machined brake surfaces for quick, safe and controlled stops.
  • City Smart: 35 MM tires are wide enough to handle curbs and potholes but narrow enough for speed.
  • Feet Friendly: Reinforced resin pedals designed wide enough to ride with boots, pumps, flip-flops, or anything in between.
  • Durable: The hi-tensile steel frame is guaranteed for life.
  • Love At First Ride Or Your Money Back: The ride itself may be the best thing about your PUBLIC bike. Which is why we offer our Love at First Ride guarantee: If you do not love your bike from the very first ride, well take it back. Period.
