We are thrilled to join the Jack London Square neighborhood on the waterfront in Oakland. Underneath the high vaulted ceilings of our new warehouse you’ll also find our photo studio and a new retail store open on June 8 at 205 Alice Street.

The Oakland PUBLIC store will be open from 11am-4pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Come celebrate with us at our Opening Party on Saturday, June 16 from 1-4pm.

Oakland PUBLIC Store Opening Party
1-4pm, Saturday, June 16
205 Alice Street at 2nd (across from Amtrak station at Jack London Square)

Last month we moved into a new, larger warehouse in Oakland. We went from 6,000 square feet to 16,000 square feet of warehouse space where we stock our inventory and build thousands of bikes for happy customers around the country.

The warehouse came with a 1,100 square foot separate space that we’ve quickly converted into an Oakland retail storefront. We’re excited to be part of the Jack London Square neighborhood, which is easily accessibly by ferry or BART from San Francisco. We hope our Oakland presence will help us better serve the East Bay and strengthen our ties with individuals and groups working to make East Bay communities more livable.

At our Oakland PUBLIC Store Opening Party, you can expect:

  • Good food, snacks, and drinks
  • Tour of PUBLIC Warehouse
  • Special deals up 40% off on handful of warehouse used bikes with slight scratches and cosmetic blemishes
  • Special promotion on our remaining 2011 model PUBLIC bikes
  • Hope to see many of you on Saturday, June 16!

    You can also use this Facebook event page to invite your friends.

    Father’s Day is just around the corner. Help your dad feel like a kid again. We put together this gift guide for dads as a handy start. Through June 17 you will receive 15% off all gear we offer. In other words, everything is 15% off except our bikes and sale items. Just place your order and use the promo code DADPICKS at the checkout.

    Use promo code: DADPICKS

    1. BROOKS PANNIER $240
    This unique roll-up pannier was inspired by a classic commuter bag design that dates from the 1890s. Made entirely of water-resistant cotton and trimmed in leather, this roomy bag rolls up to save space when not in use.

    2. PUBLIC BEDFORD $1350
    British Racing Green represents national pride and signifies a heritage of top level automobiles and motorcycles: vintage British Jaquars, MGs, BSAs and the like. Its a traditional sporty color that goes well on modern bikes, like our new 8-speed PUBLIC Bedford D8, especially when combined with other classic details.

    3. BRASS BELL $15
    A quality bike bell with a pleasing civil tone is hard to find. Too often, they have a tinny abrasive sound. Simple and elegant, this bell is loud enough to do its job, without being obnoxious.

    4. AIRKOMPRESSOR FLOOR PUMP $45
    For the smoothest and safest ride, tires need an extra pump of air every couple weeks. Having a pump at home guarantees convenience and the satisfaction of an everyday pleasant ride. The new Airkompressor 12.0 Pump is an all purpose affordably priced high performance pump.

    5. BERN WATTS HELMET $60
    The Bern Watts Helmet has elegant minimal lines, a sophisticated European look, and superb function. Its vents and hard shell visor make it practical for all seasons.

    6. TIGRA BIKE MOUNT FOR IPHONE $50
    We were hesitant to offer an iPhone bike mount because we believe it is important to keep your eye on the road and your surroundings. But we also understand the convenience of having a GPS system at your fingertips. Our favorite way to travel through new cities is by bicycle and GPS comes in handy.

    Special Bikes for Special Groups

    We like to find ways to work creatively with organizations that believe in our mission. It is incredibly satisfying to collaborate with companies and organizations that promote bicycling as a healthy choice for everyday transportation. We receive a lot of requests to donate a bike to a worthwhile cause like public broadcasting, community art centers, and urban planning coalitions, just to name a few. While we are not in a position to give bikes away, we have found some clever and successful ways to support groups.

    Our local Public Broadcasting NPR affiliate KQED is one example. We helped them raise over $170,000 for their pledge drive which featured PUBLIC bikes on Bike to Work Day two weeks ago. It was one of their most successful pledge drives. Grist, the environmental news website raised $72,000 for their membership drive featuring a PUBLIC bike. We did a similar promotion for the Sierra Club, who works to protect communities and the environment. Other organizations we’ve helped range from Streetsblog, Bike Zambia, Homeless PreNatal Program, California Bicycle Coalition, Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center, among others.

    Developing special bikes for events is also fun. This month the ArtBikes auction at the San Francisco Fine Arts Fair featured PUBLIC Bikes to help raise $10,000 for our local San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. Earlier this year Creative Growth, a community art center for adults with mental and physical disabilities, auctioned a PUBLIC bike painted by artist Donald Mitchell and brought in $2,000.

    We also customize large bike orders for organizations, hotels, and companies. Recently local Bay Area companies Williams-Sonoma and Mozilla, with support from our friends at Bikes Make Life Better, introduced employee bike share programs to help their employees get around more efficiently and more happily. They join a growing list of innovative, people-oriented companies that are rethinking the way their employees move between offices, corporate campuses, or around town.

    If you work for a company or organization that you think should incorporate a bike fleet, read on for more information. And please do come to us with creative ideas for ways we can work together. Send us your ideas here.

    A Bike for the Bridge

    This month our favorite bridge celebrates her 75th birthday. There are many attendant festivities.

    This month our favorite bridge celebrates her 75th birthday. There are many attendant festivities. Our contribution is the introduction of PUBLIC Bikes painted in the exact color and finish of the bridge (International Orange). We have a limited number of these 7-speed bikes ($750) – so, if you are interested, act quickly.

    It’s easy to be a little jaded about a 75th anniversary: 50 is impressive, 100 epic. But jaded just doesn’t work with the Golden Gate Bridge; we love it so much we’d support a yearly celebration. In fact, I consider this bridge to be one of the greatest pieces of modern design – ever. Like all classic works, it just seems to grow in stature and grace every time we look at it.

    What makes it so great? So many things. Astounding engineering – when completed in 1937 it was the tallest bridge in the world and the longest single-span suspension structure. Majesty – a man-made structure that holds it own even set against the dramatic natural surroundings and wonders of the bay. Beautiful design details – like the elegant ‘pyramiding’ columns. It’s heroic – reflecting our highest ambitions and speaking well of mankind. It transcends politics and brushes aside traditional design categorization. Although often billed as a triumph of the Art Deco style, its essence is too powerful, honest, and modern to be assigned to a bygone era. So purposeful, so optimistic, The Golden Gate Bridge is like a dynamic living creature, you even feel it move when you walk or ride over it.

    Even with all these assets, its color might be the most defining feature. There are many stories about how its color came to be. If the US Air Force had its way the bridge would have been done up in red and white horizontal stripes (for visibility). The Navy was pushing for yellow and black. Others argued for a neutral grey to blend into the landscape. There were varying schemes to paint the railings and cables in colors contrasting the columns. But when the steel arrived with a reddish orange lead based primer in 1934 it became obvious to architect Irving F. Morrow that International Orange was the right choice.

    The name of the color is also elusive. The way the light reflects off the surface gives it a somewhat indefinable patina and character. The color changes with the day and time, light, and perpetual aging and exposure to weather. More than a color the surface is like a breathing skin. A great fast paced read on the subject is Golden Gate Bridge: History and Design of an Icon, which has wonderful drawings and illustrations by Donald MacDonald that give a proper context for the bridge – purchase info below.

    I was just in NYC for the ICFF show. There was a Californian Design booth and the backdrop for the booth was a huge photo of the GG Bridge.  It is perhaps the greatest symbol for California and perhaps for modernism overall given the power with which it combines form and function.

     

     

    BOOK: Golden Gate Bridge: History and Design of an Icon ($16.95)
    A fascinating study for those interested in architecture, design, or anyone with a soft spot for San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge is a fitting tribute to this timeless icon. This accessible account is accompanied by 70 of MacDonald’s own charming color illustrations, making it easy to understand how the bridge was designed and constructed.

    Bikes and Art have an illustrious history and intersection. The bike itself is such an elegant and iconic form that lends itself so well to abstraction and play. When the two collide magical things can happen. From the colorful lithography posters of the late nineteenth century to conceptual installations of the twenty-first century the bicycle has been an instrument for artistic freedom. Iconic artists, like Marcel Duchamp, have used bicycle parts for sculpture. Picasso constructed Bull’s Head (1942) from the handlebars and seat of a bicycle. Forever Bicycles (2003-present) by artist Ai Wei Wei uses the bike form to create labyrinth-like installations that comment on China’s shifting social environment. In 2011 the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) asked artists to tailor products into symbols of art – Damien Hirst came back with a voluptuously painted bicycle called Psychedelic Spin Hollander (2011).

    Marcel Duchamp, Bicycle Wheel, 1913



    Donald Mitchell, Untitled, 2012


    Klari Reis, Pedestal Bike, 2012



    Cyrus Tilton, Fossil Fuel, 2012



    Ken Kalman, Chariot of Fire, 2012

    We have some modest examples of our own. This year we have collaborated with several artists and community groups to use bikes as a springboard for artistic expression. These range from simple expressive painting on a bike frame as with artist Donald Mitchell that was auctioned off to support Creative Growth, to several radical artistic of bikes for the San Francisco Art Fair (opens this weekend in SF).

    ArtBikes at San Francisco Fine Art Fair

    The third annual San Francisco Fine Art Fair takes place May 16-20, 2012, at Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion. Proceeds from the sale of the art bikes benefit the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.

    The unveiling of the ArtBikes Auction signals the start of festivities for the San Francisco Fine Art Fair on May 16 at 7:30 pm. 7 renowned artists and sculptors convert seven PUBLIC  bikes into unique works of art. ArtBikes brings awareness to cycling as a healthy and efficient form of transportation. The bikes will be unveiled on opening night May 16th by members of Verasphere’s drag queens led by David Faulk and Michael Johnstone.

    ArtBike participating artists include Ken Kalman (George Krevsky Gallery, San Francisco); Gino Miles (Ten472 Contemporary Art, Nevada City); Michael Osborne (Hamamjian Modern, San Francisco); Gustavo Ramos Rivera collaborating with Kathryn Kain (Westbrook Gallery, Carmel); Klari Reis (Cynthia Corbett Gallery, UK); Moe Thomas (McLoughlin Gallery, San Francisco); and Cyrus Tilton (Vessel Gallery, Oakland).

    Klari Reis’s “Pedestal Bike”, featured above, embeds a deconstructed bike in a colorful multi-layer pedestal. By displaying the manufactured object as art, Reis takes an approach that directly plays with the definition of the exhibition.

    Cyrus Tilton’s “Fossil Fuel”, also featured above, applies the artist’s interests in anatomy and natural history to the multiple forms found in the bicycle. “I see many similarities between the anatomy of a bicycle and that of an animal,” says Tilton, who was born and raised in the Alaskan wilderness northeast of Anchorage.

    Ken Kalman’s winged “Chariot of Fire,” featured above, refers to mythological messenger gods (Hermes, Mercury, the Thunderbird, and Ezekiel), who “rode like the wind.”

    Read on for more info on ArtBike. A lot can be said about these pieces and their meaning. But the images speak for themselves. Check out the show if you are in SF. And we’re always loking to partner with other arts groups, so let us know if you have a similar opportunity.

    Volunteer

    We are looking for volunteers to work an 8-hour shift from 11am-7pm on May 17, 18, and 19. Volunteers will receive a $200 voucher off a 2011 PUBLIC bike, plus a One-Day Pass into SF Fine Art Fair. Please contact dan@publicbikes.com if interested in volunteering.

    Seats, helmets, and more for kids at PUBLIC.Since we launched two years ago, we’ve seen a growing trend of parents, especially mothers, buying bikes and kids seats. So many parents tell us one of the greatest joys they experience is getting to discover the world with their child on bikes. That’s why we’ve carefully expanded our  product offerings for parents and kids.

    Kidical MassWe’ve also seen this trend reinforced with organized bike rides for parents such as Kidical Mass, a ride that started in Eugene but has since been replicated in other cities like Napa. Kidical Mass has a simple goal of getting more kids and families excited about bicycling.

    And we’ve seen more bloggers sharing their experience riding with children. One of our favorites is Elka Karl, CasaSugar editor and PUBLIC bikes customer. Elka rides her PUBLIC bike with her child and has documented her experience in many blog posts

    The other trend we’re seeing is more pregnant women riding to stay fit during early pregnancy. We’ve had expectant moms buy our bikes, particularly our step-thru PUBLIC C7 that allows them to safely get on and off easily. Here’s a good summary about bicycling during early pregnancy.

    If there is one neighborhood that has really come into its own in the last decade in SF it’s the Mission District. Referred to by the NY Times as a Hipster Hunting Ground it is home to the oldest standing building is SF, Mission Dolores, has some of the newest cool restaurants, and is a centerpiece in the city for its progressive street designs which include bike lanes on both sides of the street. The bike culture is like nowhere else in the city. The streetlights are timed to the pace of the bikes, not the cars, and there are generous bike racks all along. So we’re thrilled to be opening up a pop-up store in the classic Harrington Gallery at 17th & Valencia and thrilled to join the other great bike stores on the street: Mission Bicycle Company, Valencia Cycles, and Freewheel.
    Valencia Street is known for food as much as bikes. On our one block alone you’ll find a range of destinations that includes some of the most chic cafes in the city (Bar Tartine, Locanda, and Frjtz just to name a few). Cinco de Mayo insipred iron grates around trees and legendary graffiti can be found on almost every block. With a street character and diversity that you will not find elsewhere, it’s a prefect place for us to set up shop.
    We just moved in last week, and we’re still fixing the place up, but please come by and meet Dave, Justin, and Jillian or apply for a job yourself. You can test ride our bikes and check out some cool new gear such as the new Detours bike bags and Spokelit featured above. Also check out the new Nantucket Lightship Basket and new assortment of the popular Nutcase helmets. It’s worth browsing Harrington Galleries, which has an amazing range of vintage and eclectic furniture. Store hours are Monday and Tuesday 11:00 am – 6:00 pm, Wednesday closed, Thursday – Sunday 11:00 am – 7:00 pm.

    BIG Thank You to Our 1st Valencia Customers
    We enjoy our job most when we send a new rider off on their maiden spin. Their smiles alone make our job worthwhile. Erica, pictured on the left, spruced up her bike with one of our new Detours Panniers.  And don’t be surprised if we ask to take your picture when you stop by.

    We asked Rea a few questions in anticipation for our Feb 24 PUBLIC Pre-Oscar Party: Hollywood Rides a Bike.

    Who are the most famous living Hollywood celebrities you know or heard of who rides a bike?
    I know Russell Crowe has commuted to the sets of some of his films on a bike. Ewan McGregor, in addition to being a motorcyclist, has a cool vintage Jack Taylor and does a lot of cycling. Robin Williams is a serious road cyclist, as you probably know, since he’s a San Franciscan. Matthew Modine, Zach Galifianakis, Natalie Portman, are a few others I know of.

    If you could only show three photos from your collection, which would those be and why?
    Lauren Bacall, just 20, in 1945, with her screen debut “To Have and Have Not” just about to be released, leaning against a bike on a studio soundstage having a cup of coffee and looking totally cool. And because it’s so rare, and awesome, Olivia de Havilland, stopping on the backlot with her bike and bike trailer, during production of 1935’s “Captain Blood” with Errol Flynn. The trailer has her name painted on it, as well as the title “Capt. Blood,” and carries her makeup, her script and whatnot as she commutes between dressing room and soundstage. And Susan Peters, astride her Monark bike, looking out from the Santa Monica Palisades to the sea. She was nominated for a best supporting actress for “Random Harvest,” a terrific 1942 amnesia melodrama starring Ronald Colman. A few years later she was in a hunting accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down, so this gorgeous photo is tinged with tragedy.

    What’s your favorite city or cities to explore by bike and why?
    Montreal is certainly one — a great network of dedicated bike lanes, and a real cycling culture. And Amsterdam is cycling heaven.

    What was the biggest challenge putting together your book?
    Determining the provenance of some of the photos. Especially with the older images, many came without snipes or captions or any sort of credits. I watched a lot of old movies trying to determine what film, what year, particular images came from — if they came from a specific film, or if they were “candids” taken during a production.

    After this book, what’s next for you and Rides a Bike?
    “Rides a Bike 2”? I have some really wonderful images acquired since the book went to press, so, who knows. I can dream, right?
