Thoughtful upgrades make this new version of the PUBLIC V7 our sleekest, most city-ready to date. The V7 is our most popular, most affordable multi-speed diamond frame city bike for a reason. It's a great choice for anyone looking to upgrade to a dependable form of urban transportation on a budget.

Spec changes from the previous model include minimalist graphics, a sportier, negative-rise handlebar stem, commuter-tested, PUBLIC Brunch Handlebar and the sleeker PUBLIC Premium Bike Saddle.

Built around a classic diamond frame handcrafted of durable lightweight steel, the PUBLIC V7 city bike sports a versatile Shimano MegaRange 1x7 drivetrain with a wide range of gears designed to tackle just about any hill from San Francisco to Seattle. Puncture-resistant commuter bike tires offer our signature smooth ride over even rough city streets. Upgraded dual-pivot caliper brakes with quick release let you ride hard and stop on a dime.

Naturally, the PUBLIC V7 city bike comes standard with all our unique commuter details: full fenders and chainguard to keep your clothes sharp and dry whether you're heading to work or late for a date, new negative-rise stem lends a sportier feel, and the sleek city saddle and grips sport our new weatherproof antique brown finish. Front and rear rack mounts accommodate a range of cargo carrying options to take the load off your back.

Getting rolling on your new PUBLIC V7 is unbelievably easy, with our unique Ready to Ride shipping option that delivers a fully assembled bike right to your doorstep. Carefully tuned and packed by our mechanics in the Bay Area, you will be riding in about 10 minutes after unboxing your new bike. Our 14-day Love at First Ride Guarantee ensures you'll love your bike, or we'll take it back. Period. You have nothing to lose except traffic jams, missed trains, and surge pricing.
