A kid (or adult) will never forget the first time he or she learned to ride a bicycle. Imagine the look on a child’s face when they first scoot away sans training wheels. Freedom. Possibility!! Riding a bike has been so deeply ingrained into my childhood that I’ve managed to have a full fledged love affair as an adult. I LOVE TO RIDE BIKES.  It wasn’t until a few years ago when I finally bought my first bike as an adult from the Brooklyn Flea.  A 1956 Raleigh Cruiser. That (pretty) piece of junk weighed a ton and could barely manage the hills of Fort Greene and Park Slope Brooklyn.  A year or so later, I upgraded to a sea foam green and red cruiser, which I love dearly, but is a tad small for my height.  So fast forward to about a month ago, when PUBLIC bikes got in touch wondering if I’d take one of their models for a spin.  Are you kidding me?! OF COURSE!! 

Now, I don’t have a lot of technical verbiage in the bicycle department, but I’d do my best for this review.

My cream M3 bicycle arrived mostly assembled in a large box and included some tools and touch up paint to finish the job. All I had to do was cut all of the shipping ties and cardboard away from the bike and install the handle bars and foot pedals.  I watched a video on their website for guidance and it took me about 10 minutes to complete. I went on my first ride that afternoon and took some notes when I got back to my desk.  

First thoughts on my PUBLIC: 

  • Beautiful
  • Super easy to put together
  • Light weight
  • Beautiful
  • Fun to ride!
  • Comfortable
  • Handle bars are high enough
  • Perfect for riding in a skirt
  • I feel so cute riding it
  • I love my new bicycle

I’m yet to find any cons with this bike, but if I do, I’ll let you know. It’s a real pleasure to review something so high quality (and chic!) and I am so grateful that PUBLIC sent me this bike. I’ve also added my own basket and a new red bell.  And I’ve received so many compliments as I spin around town too! 


Now, a few notes about the outfit.  I was feeling like a tomboy this morning, but the first thing Adam said when he saw my outfit was “You look so Parisian.” Ok! I’ll take it!  (Although I think the St. James sweater has something to do with that!)  I also wish you could see the color of these cords better - they are a very soft sage green. I love how all of the colors in this outfit work together, yet don’t match.  Perfect for a half day at the studio and a bunch of errands later on. And if your keen eyes noticed a bit of cat hair on this sweater - you’re oh-so-right. I’m taking my new little baby Raymond to the vet this afternoon and I. Cannot. Stop. Snuggling. Him.  Last night he slept on my hair. I am now a full fledged cat lady. And a bike lady! And I love it!
