SOLD OUT ALL S7 BIKES. DO NOT ORDER ONLINE AS OF 12:38PM WED, APRIL 17. NEW 2013 BIKES AVAILABLE FOR SALE ON MAY 7.

We designed the PUBLIC S7 to meet the needs and requests of our customers who asked for the most affordable, high quality city bike in the market. Here it is, our newest lightweight, easy-shifting, seven-speed bike designed for stop-and-go city riding. Color options include our Red, Silver, and Black. We challenge you to find a better, more affordable multi-speed, steel-frame city bike with matching fenders, chain guard, and kickstand. At this price it might be considered our most PUBLIC bike. It does not have some of the styling details, options, and sizes of our more expensive models, but it rides like butter and the frame is guaranteed for life.

With its curved, open, step-through frame design, it is often referred to as a Dutch bike. It is especially well suited for those who wear skirts or prefer not to swing a leg over a typical frame crossbar. The PUBLIC S7 embodies old-school aesthetic charm with modern components.

Signature PUBLIC features include lightweight, durable steel-frame, along with aluminum chain guard and sturdy steel fenders to keep your clothes clean. You can add any PUBLIC rack to carry a pannier, basket, or bungee your items. The easy-shifting, seven-speed city derailleur system takes you virtually anywhere and back, even up and down the toughest hills of San Francisco. The PUBLIC S7 brings a level of quality at an affordable price that's hard to beat.

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

Details

  • 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: Kickstands so you don't have to prop your bike up against a lamppost. And chain guards to keep grease off your fresh, clean clothes.
  • Modern: The Shimano 7-speed rear derailleur and Revo twist shifter brings state-of-the-art technology to the shifting system. Changing gears is done with a simple twist of the wrist.
  • 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 hi-tensile 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 3-5 business days. We'll deliver it to your door.
