Whether it's a casual weekend spin in the park, or a daily commuter bike for cross-town riding, the PUBLIC V7i will take you anywhere you desire to go and back again. Like all PUBLIC Bikes, the PUBLIC V7i comes equipped with a high quality steel frame, painted to match rims, chain guard and fenders, color coordinated cables, and high quality comfort saddle.

What makes the PUBLIC V7i an especially good commuter bike is the Shimano Nexus 7 speed internally geared rear hub. This robust and durable shifting system delivers quick and easy gear changes, allowing the rider to select any gear they wish while pedaling or at a full stop; perfect for stop and go city riding. Virtually maintenance free, the Shimano Nexus 7 speed hub is a proven design with a reputation for quality and reliability. In addition to the upgraded drivetrain, the PUBLIC V7i receives our strongest double walled alloy rims, which provide additional durability over even the roughest pavement. Like the PUBLIC V1 and V7, the V7i commuter bike is built around our classic diamond shaped steel frame with a slightly sloping top tube to provide better stand over clearance for all riders.

In keeping with our love for simple, clean and functional bicycles, the PUBLIC V7i includes everything you need and nothing you dont. In addition to the smooth shifting Shimano Nexus 7 speed hub, the PUBLIC V7i comes standard with powerful modern dual pivot brakes to ensure safe and reliable braking in all conditions. Also standard on all PUBLIC V7i bikes are tires with 3M reflective sidewalls to provide additional visibility and safety at night. Like all PUBLIC bikes, the PUBLIC V7i includes front and rear rack mounts making it easy to add a rack and carry items with a pannier or basket. Many PUBLIC owners choose to further customize their bikes with Brooks saddles and special grips .

We designed the PUBLIC V7i to meet the requests of customers who asked for a high quality internally geared city bike with style, function and versatility that would be fun and easy to ride. We love the PUBLIC V7i and are so sure that you will too, we offer our Love at First Ride guarantee. If you do not love your new PUBLIC bike from the very first ride we will take it back. Period.
