PUBLIC V3 - 2011
Special: $350.00 (Currently not available)
(Currently not available)
The PUBLIC V3 is our 3-speed internal hub gear, all-purpose, lightweight steel-frame urban bike. The three gears provide plenty of range for moderate hill climbing and are ideal for flat topographies. The internal hub gearing allows you to shift gears without having to pedal, whether you're stopped at an intersection or coasting. Comfortable enough for everyday trips for casual riders and reliable enough to be your everyday, rain or shine, commuter workhorse.
Signature PUBLIC features include a durable steel-frame. Guaranteed for life. Upright handlebars and relaxed frame geometry provide European feel and comfort. Featherweight aluminum chain guard and fenders keep your clothes clean. You can add a PUBLIC rear rack to carry a pannier, rear basket, or bungee your items. Add a front rack for purses, baguettes, or any lightweight items.
Color options include our classic Cream, British Racing Green, and Orange. The inside of the tire rims on the PUBLIC V3 are painted to match the frame color. We've modified the frame geometry with a sloping top tube that provides more stand-over clearance. Put simply, the PUBLIC V3 rides like butter.
