Pure simplicity, thoughtful design, and classic style. The PUBLIC V1 sets the standard even higher for what a city bike can be.

Designed around a lightweight, handcrafted steel frame, the PUBLIC V1 sports a low-maintenance single-speed drivetrain, built to withstand the daily grind. Puncture-resistant commuter tires deliver our signature smooth ride, even on rough city streets, and strong dual-pivot caliper brakes let you ride hard and stop on a dime in any traffic jam. We've updated the handlebar stem to a negative rise stem for a sportier ride and created all-new reflective graphics.

And like every PUBLIC commuter bike, each new PUBLIC V1 comes outfitted with our industry-leading city package of matching full fenders and sleek chainguard to keep your jeans clean, and front and rear rack mounts so you can carry any kind of cargo.

You simply won't find a better-built bike at such an affordable price, with thoughtful details and quality components normally found on bikes costing hundreds more. You also won't find a simpler delivery option than our exclusive Ready to Ride shipping, which delivers a fully built and mechanic-tuned bike to your doorstep - 99% assembled, zero hassle. You'll be out riding in minutes.
