For most of us, a bicycle was the first vehicle we ever owned; the first trusty steed that gave us the opportunity to travel wherever we wanted to go. Those who still cycle regularly get to revel in the thrill of unrestricted travel, with wind in their hair and the joy of propelling the bike with their own bodies, and having the right bicycle makes the experience even more enjoyable. As more people ditch their cars in favor of healthier, more eco-friendly options, bikes are becoming more popular than ever before, and they can be as sleek and beautiful as they are utilitarian. PUBLIC bikes are perfect examples of this pairing: classic Dutch bicycles perfectly suited to modern city cycling.
Sturdy and stylish, yet lightweight and efficient, PUBLIC bikes are optimal for city dwellers who like to cycle around town, and for students who prefer a more eco-savvy way to travel around campus. These bicycles are constructed with a high-quality steel frame and come with matching fenders, chain guard (so your clothes don’t get spattered), and painted rims. Ideal for a range of different terrains, they’re lightweight yet sturdy, and their powerful brakes allow them to stop on a dime! With upright, back-friendly handles and cushioned seats, it’s easy to see why this style of bike has been so popular across Europe for decades.
