The PUBLIC M BionX is our electric pedal-assist bicycle built around our popular PUBLIC Mixte frame, which comes in our classic Orange and Royal Blue colors. When ordering, please refer to our PUBLIC Mixte bike options and indicate which color and size you want during checkout.

Based on a classic French city bike design, the mixte frame offers the versatility of a step-through with the performance of a diamond frame. The PUBLIC mixte frame design is especially suited for those who wear skirts or prefer not to swing a leg over a typical crossbar.

The PUBLIC M BionX can go up to 20mph with a range of 15-30 miles on a full charge depending on your riding conditions. To fully recharge your battery, you simply plug the battery (attached or unattached from the rear rack) - into a normal outlet for 3-4 hours.

We are confident our PUBLIC M BionX will give you that extra power up hills or when you're simply tired of riding against the wind or when you need to speed home to get out of the rain or cold. BionX is the unqualified industry leader for electric bike systems, and they have been for years. Over 250,000 bikes worldwide use BionX electric technology, so they are tried and tested.

With our highest quality chromoly steel frame material, the PUBLIC M Bionx electric bike is a dependable workhorse that can breeze you across town without breaking a sweat. When you order the PUBLIC M BionX, we install the entire BionX system, including a console, a battery integrated into a rear rack, a rear-wheel motor, a double kickstand, and a 7-speed derailleur shifting system.

Signature PUBLIC features include lightweight, durable chromoly steel-frame. Featherweight aluminum chain guard and sturdy fenders keep your clothes clean. You can dress it up with a pannier or other accessories to suit your personality or functional needs.

We make delivery and assembly easy for you, including our unique Ready to Ride shipping option.


  • Comfortable: Steel tubing and frame geometry make for a softer ride than with other materials. Seats are designed for normal clothing.
  • Ergonomic: Upright handlebars keep you looking forward, not down. They're also kinder to your back.
  • Practical: Double kickstand so you don't have to prop your bike up against a lamppost. And chain guards to keep grease off your fresh, clean clothes.
  • Safe Braking: Alloy brakes combine with lightweight alloy rims with machined brake surfaces for quick, safe and controlled stops.
  • City Smart: 35 MM tires are wide enough to handle curbs and potholes but narrow enough for speed.
  • Feet Friendly: Reinforced resin pedals designed wide enough to ride with boots, pumps, flip-flops, or anything in between.
  • Durable: The chromoly steel frame is guaranteed for life.
  • Love At First Ride Or Your Money Back: The ride itself may be the best thing about your PUBLIC bike. Which is why we offer our Love at First Ride guarantee: If you do not love your bike from the very first ride, well take it back. Period.

Delivery: Your bike is ready to ship within 7-10 business days. We'll deliver it to your door.
