PUBLIC D8 - Bleeker
$1,295.00 (IN STOCK)
Black is perhaps the most quintessential and historic bike color. Since we launched PUBLIC, we've been besieged with requests for a black bike. So I put together our Classic D8 model with a few special details that give it more personality: vintage-style aluminum hammered fenders, black Brooks B17 saddle, black leather ergo grips, matching black deep rims, and woven metal cable housing. 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 D8 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. It is an ideal choice for urbanites who are hard on their bikes, or who frequently encounter potholes and bumpy streets.
