The Public C7
Whether it's a daily commute to work or a weekend trip to the farmers market, the PUBLIC C7 will take you anywhere you desire to go in comfort and style. Like all PUBLIC Bikes, the PUBLIC C7 is built around a high quality "smooth as butter" steel frame and includes painted-to-match rims, chain guard and fenders, color coordinated cables, and high quality memory foam comfort saddle.
What makes the C7 PUBLIC’s best Dutch commuter bike is the easy-shifting Shimano Nexus 7-speed, internally-geared rear hub. This robust, durable and low maintenance shifting system makes changing gears a breeze, and allows the rider to select the ideal gear whether pedaling or at a full stop. This is particularly helpful when riding around town where stoplights and stop signs necessitate frequent shifting. In addition to the upgraded and simplified drivetrain, the PUBLIC C7 has strong, doubl-walled, alloy rims, which will provide years of trouble free service, even over the roughest pavement.
This Dutch commuter bike style has been popular with women and men in Europe for decades, in part because it's easy to get on and off in pants and dresses alike. Like all PUBLIC bikes, the C7 includes front and rear rack mounts, making it easy to add a rack and carry items with a pannier or basket.

This classic geometry has a slightly sloping top tube to provide more stand-over clearance between the rider and the bike.
It comes fully appointed with fenders, chain guard and kickstand to make for pleasant and clean trips about town, without rolling up your pants leg. Modern alloy rims and dual pivot alloy brake calipers are also standard and provide safe, reliable braking rain or shine.
Additionally, the PUBLIC V7 features matching painted rims, color coordinated cable housing, cream tires, and high quality grips and saddle. It includes front and rear rack mounts making it easy to add a rack and carry items with a pannier or basket.
