You talked. We listened. You wanted a lighter, sportier bike for commuting, fitness and everyday errands. You wanted more gears for tackling the hills and trigger shifters for responsive shifting right at your finger tips.

Meet our new PUBLIC R16 flat bar city road bike – built to give you just what you want in a bike. It’s nimble, light-weight and packed with 16-speeds to power you up the hills and down them. The new PUBLIC R16 is a reimagined version of its drop bar predecessor with a modern, slightly curved flat bar and Shimano Claris Rapidfire trigger shifters. We’ve included fenders for when it gets wet, slender city-ready tires and a comfortable city saddle and grips. It’s also available at the special price of $699 $899

Our PUBLIC R16 has received a lot of positive feedback already, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out the above video to see just what makes this bike great for city riding and everything else.

    no helmets?!?
    kinda like jumping into a high performance car and not buckling a seat belt. Really, Public . . .

      Hi Dafna, thanks for your comment, we agree helmets are a good idea, especially on road bikes!

We help cure one horrific, life changing for the worse disease and help people who can’t afford a bicycle or don’t have space or don’t want hassle with bringing there bicycle on a flight. This story shows live life to the fullest best you can and sometimes you have to be bold in life.
