Our Special Edition PUBLIC Market takes a fresh perspective on our PUBLIC C8. Named after Market Street in San Francisco, we designed this utilitarian city bike for trips to the Farmers Market and for your daily commute. Two hand-woven baskets make it easy to carry your belongings and add a touch of old world charm. The easy shifting 8-speed internal hub will glide you through any city, even on the hills of San Francisco. The PUBLIC Market comes equipped with our signature PUBLIC Rear Rack, Cherry Peterboro Farmers Market Rack Basket, a Cherry Peterboro Original Bike Basket, our PUBLIC Brown Seat, Duracork Grips, and a classic brass bell .
Please let us know your size in the shipping notes during checkout: S/M (4'8"-5'5") or M/L (5'6"-6'0")
The PUBLIC C8 is our newest model that combines our most popular Dutch style step-through frame with our equally popular 8-speed internal hub gear system for stop-and-go city riding. The internal hub gearing allows you to shift gears without having to pedal, whether you're stopped at an intersection or coasting.Similar to our other classic 8-speed bikes, the PUBLIC C8 features a deeper matching rim for extra styling. It is especially well suited for those who wear skirts or prefer not to swing a leg over a typical frame crossbar. Old-school aesthetic charm with modern components. Reliable and utilitarian enough to be your everyday, rain or shine, commuter workhorse. Chic enough to turn heads on city streets. Color options include our classic Orange, Cream, and Powder Blue.
Signature PUBLIC features include lightweight, durable steel-frame. Guaranteed for life. You can add a PUBLIC rack to carry a pannier, basket, or bungee your items. Featherweight aluminum chain guard and sturdy steel fenders keep your clothes clean. The easy-shifting, eight-speed internal hub gear system takes you virtually anywhere and back, even up and down the toughest hills of San Francisco. Put simply, the PUBLIC C8 rides like butter.
