PUBLIC D8i - Bedford

$1,349.00  (IN STOCK)

British Racing Green represents national pride and signifies a heritage of top level automobiles and motorcycles: vintage British Jaquars, MGs, BSAs and the like. Its a traditional sporty color that goes well on modern bikes, like our Bedford D8i, especially when combined with other classic details. The Bedford stands out among high-end commuter bikes with these details: vintage-style aluminum smooth fenders, honey Brooks B17 saddle, honey Brooks Slender Grips, Soma Sparrow handlebar and matching green deep rims. The cream colored tires provide an elegant contrast to the frame and fenders. It's a sophisticated and classic urban ride.

Please let us know your size in the shipping notes during checkout: Small (5'3" - 5'8"), Medium (5'8" - 6'0") or Large (6'0" - 6'5")

The PUBLIC D8i is an easy-shifting eight-speed bike suitable for all cities, even for the hills of San Francisco. Think of it as an elegant workhorse. The Shimano eight-speed gearing system provides power and speed on flatlands and takes the sweat out of carrying heavy office materials, your laptop or groceries. Simply stated, it makes city riding easy, and we recommend it to anyone who plans to ride often and in varying road conditions. This model has become the standard for many bicyclists in Europe because it is so dependable and versatile, though our steel frame provides a smoother ride than most European bikes. The frame style is based on the classic "diamond" frame geometry that has been the standard for city bikes, touring bikes, and even racing bikes dating back to the late 19th century.

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

  • Comfortable and Smooth Riding: Steel tubing and frame geometry make for a softer ride experience than other frames and materials.
  • Practical: Kickstands so you don't have to prop your bike up against a lamppost. Chain guards and fenders to keep oil and water off your clothes. Designed to accommodate our racks and baskets for extra carrying capabilities.
  • Feet friendly: Ride with boots, pumps, flip-flops, or anything in between
  • Ergonomic: Upright handlebars keep you looking up, not down, and are kind to your back. Seats are designed for normal clothing and we offer special comfort options for any and all rear ends.
  • Easy to use: The Shimano Nexus system brings state-of-the-art smart technology to the shifting system. Changing through the eight-gears is about as easy as shifting an automatic car.
  • Safe: Powerful modern brakes for quick stopping and reflective strips on tires for nighttime visibility.
  • City Smart: 35 MM tires are wide enough to handle curbs and potholes but narrow enough for speed.
  • Durable: Steel frame will last a lifetime if taken care of properly and guaranteed for life.

Delivery: Your bike is ready to ship within 3-5 business days. We'll deliver it to your door .
