PUBLIC C7 - Polka Dot
(Currently not available)
OUT OF STOCK. DO NOT ORDER ONLINE.
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.
