Harrison Street is one of the best bike routes in San Francisco's Mission District, and was the home address of PUBLIC's original bike warehouse.

Whether you're heading to the food co-op, the brewpub, the climbing gym, or the taco truck, the PUBLIC V1 Harrison edition city bike is your dependable everyday urban ride.

The bulletproof black Brooks B17 saddle will stand up to thousands of commutes and the front porteur rack offers plenty of cargo space for whatever you grab at the bodega.

We upgraded the Harrison with a low-rise stem and premium alloy porteur bars with black cork grips from Velo Orange. With the included fenders and chainguard, any stains on your jeans will be your own fault.

The low-maintenance single-speed drivetrain is geared for heavy loads and moderate hills, because we're all forced to leave the Mission sometimes, whether we like it or not.

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

Ordering your new PUBLIC bike online is fast and easy. We offer multiple shipping options and can ship directly to your home or office. Our most popular shipping option is our fully assembled Ready to Ride shipping. With our Ready to Ride shipping, the only assembly required is taking the bike out of the box and installing the pedals (tools included).
