The new Public C7 is a modern take on an iconic design, and Public’s most popular, most affordable multi-speed step-through frame city bike for women and men who appreciate timeless European style.
This delightful bike offers easy shifting and a wide range of gears that can handle just about any hill. The tires offer great puncture-resistance and a 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.
All Public bikes include painted to match rims, colour coordinated cable housing, cream tires, and optional matching rear racks. You can further customize your Public with a basket, panniers or any other accessory you choose.
