The multi-speed PUBLIC V7 is perfect for entry-level riders and we love it for its affordable price and charming good looks. The lightweight city bike sports a durable chromoly diamond frame that comes in three colors—British racing green, classic black, or slate blue—and is paired with cream-colored puncture-resistant tires wide enough to guarantee a smooth ride but narrow enough for speed. There’s no need to worry about getting your pants leg or dress caught in the drive train either—the PUBLIC V7 comes with a chain guard and fenders to keep you safe from puddles.

The bicycle’s 7-speed drivetrain offers just enough versatility to tackle any terrain, even the notorious hills of San Francisco. Dual-pivot caliper brakes make it easy to stop on a whim, while the cushy seat and classic sweptback handlebars offer a comfortable and upright ride. There are no quick release skewers on the bicycle in order to deter potential thieves. PUBLIC also offers optional rear rack and basket add-ons.
