Oh the joys of your first set of wheels. While your first car may come to mind, the truth of matter is, your first set of wheels was probably your bike. And San Fransisco’s Public Bikes builds and sells bikes that honor your first set of wheels by creating bikes for the type of wheels you want to drive today. These European-style bikes are built with a lightweight-but-strong frame. They withstand the bumps and potholes of city streets. The chain guard and fenders provide a shield between the dirt and grime of the road and your clothes. They’re multi-speed and powerful enough to ride uphill, even in cities as notoriously hilly as San Francisco is. Public Bikes are a great set of wheels for commuting to work, for commuting to the farmer’s market, for commuting back to the days of childhood, where you tested out your first set of wheels on your own city streets.
