Save Me From Myself: The Public Bikes Golden Gate Bridge C7

For the love of pete, someone tell me I don't need another bike! I have been drooling over Public's Golden Gate Bridge version of the C7. Apparently, they are almost sold out, so perhaps if I bring it to the attention of others, you all will rush out and buy them up? Please. I seriously don't need another bike.

The bike itself is the same model as the other C7's at least from what I can tell, however, they did a limited number of these to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. San Francisco is one of my favorite cities, and it's almost as though I was meant to see this {or so I will explain to Sam when yet another bike shows up in the bike storage}. The color seems a bit off in the photo, but Public states that it actually changes from oranges to reds, just like the Golden Gate Bridge. Pretty amazingly cool.

If you'd like to save me from myself, you can read more about the bike here and a bit more here. Unfortunately, its biggest downfall is that it doesn't have a coordinating rack available, which means one would have to pick a color that would complement it well, or stick with a standard silver or black rack, which honestly, could be nice. Takers? Anyone... anyone.


  1. Oh, well if there's no coordinated rack, that bike's a total no go.

    I kid, I kid.

    I'm not good at talking people down when they're lusting after something similar to my personal lust, but if you ~really~ want some talking down, how about re-reading some of the cons you wrote about the J7? I thought you felt like that one was too upright but I could be misremembering. On the other hand, Public does have a return policy if you don't want to miss out on what could be a great bike and take the plunge...

    1. Excellent thought! You are not mis-remembering either. Part of it had to do with my switching the handlebars (which was a bad idea, I can admit), but it is a good reason not to lust after it.... though, as you said, it is returnable. No, no, no... trying to talk myself out of, not into a bike.


Word verification is on, but I've turned off the moderation portion in an attempt to make it easier for you to know that your comment has indeed made it through. We'll see how this goes, but I'm hopeful that this will help out and I'll try my best to weed through and remove spammers comments. Additionally, I recommend copying comments before hitting publish as the "blogger comment eater" seems to continue his snacking.
