Bedford Avenue is Brooklyn's longest street, and a bike route so important that local riders repainted their own bike lanes after the city tried to remove them.

The PUBLIC D8i Bedford edition is a modern roadster designed for long rides across town, with urbane style that looks sharp in whatever neighborhood you're in.

The premium 8-speed internal hub runs smooth in any conditions and the Antique Brown Brooks B17 leather saddle and matching grips are built tough, look smart, and only grow better with age.

We added a slender rear rack in anodized silver for all your daily cargo, and the polished silver fenders will keep your trousers tidy.

Love at First Ride guarantee: If you do not love your bike from the very first ride, we will take it back. Period.
