Classic style, modern components.
The PUBLIC C9-AL (Aluminum) is a sleeker version of our best-selling city bike and our lightest-weight step-through frame to date. This smart, lightweight commuter uses a modern frame design and is well-suited for breezing through errands around the city as well as longer commutes.
The PUBLIC C9-AL is our best step-through city bike, with more performance than ever and unbeatable value. We went back to the drawing board with a totally redesigned frame made from PUBLIC premium aluminum tubing. The Shimano 9-speed drivetrain provides a wider range of gears to conquer even steeper hills and longer distances, and the Rapid-fire trigger shifter provides quick, effortless shifting.
