PUBLIC C1 Amelie Bike

Limited Edition Single-Speed Bike

The charming Amelie will bring a smile to every journey for a lot less than a ticket to Paris.

*Eligible for free shipping at select Assembly Partners near you.  See here for details.

PUBLIC C1 Amelie

The PUBLIC C1 Amelie edition is a carefree single-speed city bike with chic European style to breeze down any boulevard with an effortless je ne sais quoi.

The Amelie wears a Brooks B67s saddle of fine aged leather, handmade in England with broken-in leather and a sturdy spring suspension to cushion your bum from even the most antiquated cobblestone streets.

Coordinating Italian-made Brooks leather handgrips, a cherry wood Peterboro basket, handmade in New Hampshire since 1854, and an elegant PUBLIC Brass Bell complete the ensemble.

Cream city tires complement the cheerful turquoise frame, in our sophisticated step-through style often called a Dutch bike (but popular all over Europe), made of lightweight, long-lasting steel and warrantied for life. Matching turquoise fenders and chainguard ensure you only feel the wind in your hair, not splashes from the street.

Love at First Ride Guarantee:If you do not love your bike from the very first ride, we will take it back. Period.

Ordering your new PUBLIC bike online is fast and easy. We offer multiple shipping options and can ship directly to your home or office. Our most popular shipping option is our fully assembled Ready to Ride shipping. With our Ready to Ride shipping, the only assembly required is taking the bike out of the box and installing the pedals (tools included). Learn more about PUBLIC Shipping options under the Shipping tab on this page.

Public Bike Size Recommendations

A bike that fits properly is more fun to ride. The guides below offer size suggestion based on height in inches. If you have measuring tape, you may also determine your size by measuring your leg length plus one inch, which is your stand over measurement. For all bikes, we recommend at least 1 inch of space between you and the top tube of the bike.

When in doubt, contact our customer service team via email at customerservice@publicbikes.com or phone at 1-888-450-0123. For children’s bikes, smaller bikes are always easier for beginners.

*Please note some riders may be a little outside of these height range recommendations but prefer the feel of a larger or smaller bike. Stand over height measurement is not as important as how the bike geometry feels while it is being ridden.
