Partner with PUBLIC

Since the outset of PUBLIC four years ago we’ve enjoyed partnerships with individuals and companies ranging from boutique coffee roasters to enormous retailers like Gap. This eclectic list includes Tretorn, Kimpton Hotels, Clif Bar, Rickshaw Bagworks, Flos Lighting, and institutions like the California College of Art.

We have hosted numerous events at our South Park headquarters, including product launches for companies such as Parker Dusseau, bicycle-related movie nights and book readings, camping trips, and dozens of local fundraisers to support worthy charitable causes. We have worked with numerous arts organizations like Creative Growth and Southern Exposure, creating some unique one of a kind art bikes, and we’ve also partnered with 26 world-renowned designers and artists with our PUBLIC WORKS poster art project. And many of our signature products, such as our PUBLIC Stripe Helmet and Federico Red Bell, were done in collaboration with manufacturers.

Our second retail store on Valencia Street is a partnership with Harrington Galleries where we share space inside a furniture store. And we have partnered with many bike stores across the US and Canada.

Partnerships are simply the way we roll, and we may be as well known for these partnerships as for our bikes. At PUBLIC, we’re not just about bikes, but also about building more livable communities with great partners.

Looking Forward

New Retail Locations
We are looking for specific new partners this year, and at the top of our list are new retail spaces in San Francisco, but we are also exploring options elsewhere around the country. These might be locations where we might have a temporary pop up store. Ideally, we’d locate a ~1,500 square feet PUBLIC retail store in a bicycle-friendly corridor.

Food & Drink Vendors in South Park
We loved having Saint Frank Coffee set up a pop-up at our South Park store and we’d love to explore other opportunities.

Product Development
We do a lot of our own in-house product development, of our bikes of course (including some big new announcements coming in 2014), but also gear like our PUBLIC Basket and PUBLIC Farmers Market Twin Pannier. But we’re always looking for interesting product designers to work with us on new products.

Apparel Designers & Manufacturers
If you design and manufacture apparel that we can sell, we’ve got a potential platform for reaching new customers.
