going public

A few days ago I saw the cutest bike chained up in front of our apartment. I figured it was some fancy schmancy European bike with an equally fancy price tag ... Oh well. That's life, right?

BUT, how excited was I today when I opened my Refinery29 Reserve newsletter to find the exact bike I'd been drooling over just days before? Super excited! As it turns out, the mysterious bike was a PUBLIC bike, which is headquartered right here in San Francisco, just blocks from my house!

As for the fancy price tag, PUBLIC bikes are actually quite reasonably priced. My two favorites, the C3 and C7 are priced from $550 to $650 and right now Reserve has a great deal on the bikes—spending $100 gets you $200 on any PUBLIC Bike. Also, while browsing their site I came across another great deal (valid till July 15th): purchase any bike and get a free Front Rack, Folding Crate & Bell ($100 value). All you have to do is add the items to your order, enter code PUBLICGOODIES at check out, and they will remove the $100 on their end and send you an updated receipt. Just look at all these deals, the bike is practically free! I want one.
