PUBLIC Bikes

Travis and I just moved to a quieter neighborhood where walking to shops and restaurants is possible, but less convenient that it was at our old place. So we’re in the market for new bikes, and of COURSE I stumbled onto this beautiful San Francisco company…

Have you heard of PUBLIC?  They make the coolest looking retro-inspired city bikes.  (I’d love to buy the model above and add a wicker bike basket to it!)

Actual vintage bikes have old-school technology, which makes them heavier and more difficult to ride.  So, I love the idea of getting the benefit of new technology while still achieving that old fashioned look.

PUBLIC bikes aren’t exactly cheap, but they’re having a sale at the moment, so I might just have to make my move…

Do you bike around your neighborhood?  What style/brand of bike do you use?  Are you a fan of the vintage bicycle look?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    I love the look of this bike, but I don’t think it would work where I live. Too dangerous to ride with Millie on HWY 9. But I looks so fun!
