Product Description

The PUBLIC C1 is a stylish, practical, affordable, and dependable way to get around your city. Wear whatever you want for a fun, easy ride, admired by beginners and seasoned cyclists alike. Carry all your daily essentials with an optional matching cargo rack on the front or rear (not included) or add your favorite bike basket. Whether you're looking for an elegant city cruiser bike, a women's hybrid bike, a classic Dutch bike, or just a reliable commuter bike, the PUBLIC C1 is ready to be your everyday transportation for commuting, errands, fitness, fashion, and fun.

From the Manufacturer

Comfortable, upright ride

Easy to ride in any outfit with a low step-through frame that's great for dresses and kilts, fully upright riding posture, swept-back city bike handlebars, comfortable grips and seat, and wide platform pedals that work great with sandals, boots, heels, flats, or sneakers. Matching color fenders and chainguard help keep your clothes clean and dry.

Classic style with modern performance

Built using the same proven upright comfort geometry as our multispeed PUBLIC C7 Dutch city bike, the PUBLIC C1 foregoes multiple gears in favor of a simple and efficient single-speed drivetrain. PUBLIC bikes are built with only quality components, like strong dual-pivot caliper brakes and smooth riding puncture-resistant 700C commuter tires, and can be easily maintained in any local shop.

Shipping & Assembly

PUBLIC Bikes on Amazon ship partially assembled, and should be taken to a bike shop for assembly and fine tuning by a professional bike mechanic. Proper bike assembly requires specialty tools and training to assure safe riding and optimal performance.


Fun Stylish Colors

The PUBLIC C1 is available in our 3 most popular colors - classic cream, fresh mint, playful turquoise.


Designed in San Francisco, California

Intended for a flat or moderately hilly terrain, we have carefully selected the ideal gearing for rolling hills as well as flatter routes. The PUBLIC C1 glides easily over rough roads with cushy, yet nimble tires and a smooth-riding steel frame — perfect for all your urban adventures.

About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Stylish. Fun. Simple.

Where did you get the inspiration for your product?

The single-speed PUBLIC C1 step-thru frame bike is inspired by trips to Europe, and in particular, visits to Amsterdam where the curved, open, step-thru bike frame design is commonly seen. The PUBLIC C1 is ideally suited for trips around town, casual riding with friends and weekend jaunts through the park.

What differentiates your product from similar products out there?

The PUBLIC C1 is built with a high quality, durable steel frame and comes complete with matching fenders, chain guard, and painted rims. Front and rear rack mounts are also standard, ensuring you will always be able to carry your much-needed items if you add an optional rear rack. Unlike many other single-speed bikes, our single-speed PUBLIC bike allows you to coast and relax while riding, while also using powerful dual pivot brakes and alloy rims to ensure great stopping power rain or shine.

Tell us about the best and most challenging parts of the creation process.

We worked hard to make sure the C1 includes the best features of our most popular PUBLIC bikes at our most affordable price, including strong dual pivot brakes, puncture-resistant cream tires, matching fenders, chainguard, and rims, and elegant step-through frame with a lifetime guarantee. It was a challenge selecting the perfect gear to make cruising easy on flat and moderately hilly streets, but we're thrilled that so many happy customers tell us they love the PUBLIC C1.
