The PUBLIC C7 is a modern take on an iconic design and our most popular, most affordable multi-speed step-through frame city bike for women and men who appreciate timeless European style.

The PUBLIC C7 offers easy shifting and a wide range of gears that can handle just about any hill around, from San Francisco to Seattle. With a design inspired by the classic Dutch city bike, the C7's step-through frame allows you to get on and off the bike gracefully in normal clothing, whether in pants or a skirt, boots, sneakers, or sandals. This curvy step-though Dutch city bike style is a time-tested design used by women and men all over Europe.

Perfect for everyday commuting as well as casual riding, the charming cream commuter tires offer great puncture-resistance and our signature smooth ride over the roughest of city streets. Its elegant curved frame is handmade of durable, lightweight steel, and the complementing chain guard and full fenders keep your clothes clean and dry in all kinds of conditions. Strong dual-pivot brakes with quick release ensure you'll always have quick, safe stopping power close at hand. The curvy handlebars and refined antique brown saddle and handgrips offer a relaxed, upright ride perfect for gliding through traffic with ease. Front and rear rack mounts accommodate a range of baskets and cargo racks, so you can let the bike do all the heavy lifting. The PUBLIC C7 is super comfortable, safe, and great for carrying groceries, going to a meeting in a suit or dress, a weekend excursion to the beach or a casual cruise to brunch with friends.

The PUBLIC C7 is a fashion-forward Dutch-style city bike with classic styling details. All PUBLIC bikes include painted to match rims, color coordinated cable housing, cream tires, and optional matching rear racks. You can further customize your PUBLIC with panniers, baskets, special grips, a Brooks saddle, or other accessories to suit your personality and needs. The PUBLIC C7 brings a level of quality at an affordable price that's hard to beat.
