Avocado C7i - is SOLD OUT.
Whether it's a weekend trip to the farmers market or a daily commute to work, the PUBLIC C7i will take you anywhere you desire to go in comfort and style. Like all PUBLIC Bikes, the PUBLIC C7i is built around our high quality "smooth as butter" steel frame and includes painted to match rims, chain guard and fenders, color coordinated cables, and our new streamlined city comfort saddle in Antique Brown with matching premium bolt-on handgrips.
What makes the PUBLIC C7i our best Dutch commuter bike is the easy-shifting Shimano Nexus 7-speed internally geared rear hub. This robust, durable and low maintenance shifting system makes changing gears a breeze, and allows the rider to select the ideal gear whether pedaling or at a full stop. This is particularly helpful when riding around town where stoplights and stop signs necessitate frequent shifting. In addition to the upgraded and simplified drivetrain, the PUBLIC C7i receives our strongest double walled alloy rims, which will provide years of trouble free service, even over the roughest pavement.
Often referred to as a 'Dutch bike,' the PUBLIC C7i shares the same high quality steel step-through frame as the C1 and C7. This Dutch commuter bike style has been popular with women and men in Europe for decades, in part because it's easy to get on and off in pants and dresses alike. Like all PUBLIC bikes, the PUBLIC C7i includes front and rear rack mounts making it easy to add a rack and carry items with a pannier or basket. Many PUBLIC owners choose to further customize their bikes with Brooks saddles and special grips.
We designed the PUBLIC C7i to meet the requests of customers who asked for a high quality, stylish and fun, internally geared city bike with function and versatility. We love the PUBLIC C7i and are so sure that you will too, we offer our Love at First Ride guarantee. If you do not love your new PUBLIC bike from the very first ride we will take it back. Period.
