The PUBLIC V7 2012 is a 7-speed, lightweight steel-frame urban bike. Color options include Black and British Racing Green. The PUBLIC V7 features matching color inside rims, color coordinated cable housing, cream tires, and optional matching rear racks.

The frame geometry was designed with a sloping top tube that provides more stand-over clearance. The PUBLIC V7 offers a solid, comfortable upright riding position. Nothing is excessive or overdone in the design of the PUBLIC V7. You'll feel like you're gliding through the streets with this sturdy yet light steel-frame everyday bike.

Signature PUBLIC features include a durable steel-frame, along with featherweight aluminum chain guard and sturdy steel fenders to keep your clothes clean. Upright handlebars and relaxed frame geometry provide European feel and comfort. You can add a PUBLIC rack to carry a pannier, basket, or bungee your items. Add a front rack for purses, baguettes, or any lightweight items. Put simply, the PUBLIC V7 rides like butter.

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 or to your local bike shop.
