|This is where we found the C7... sitting... waiting.|
|Fully outfitted C7 - Man, it's bright!|
What's changed since my last round with Public? Well, for starters, I've learned my lesson with changing out too many things. It simply altered the way the bike rode and made it difficult to find comfort again. Additionally, I know the personal limits of how far I can ride an upright bicycle, and I need to abide by those rules, so that I don't end up in situations that cause me to think that this type of bicycle isn't for me. I've learned my lesson (at least, I hope).

|The brightness is really not coming through in these photos... it is definitely not easy to miss.|
If anyone is considering Public Bikes as an option for a city bike, Melanie Suzanne has offered her initial thoughts on her C8 (with the internal hub), and some follow up on modifications, so it might be worth popping over to read her thoughts as well.
