If you're in the market for a new summer ride, you can't beat the looks or affordability of Public's C1 City Bike. The Dutch-style commuter comes complete with a Hi-Tensile steel frame with mounts for front and rear racks, 700x35c tires, and an efficient single-speed drivetrain, all while being Public's most affordable offering.
“Our bikes are designed to put a smile on your face and make you feel like a kid again,” says Public founder Rob Forbes (also the man behind Design Within Reach), and the C1 does just that.
Regularly priced at $449, the C1 is on sale now for $299. Available in either turquoise (pictured) or cream.
