PUBLIC Gets in on the Contest Fun


It must be something in the water. First it was our photo contest, which if you haven’t noticed (who couldn’t), is washing over EcoVelo like a tsunami. Then there’s Yuba’s video contest running this month, which we posted about last week. And now, PUBLIC is hosting an essay contest and giving away a pair of new bikes.


We are introducing two new PUBLIC bike models this fall. These bikes will be available for sale in mid-November 2010. But before we make these bikes available to the general public, we will offer two people a chance to win one of our new PUBLIC bikes by inspiring us with your vision of how our world will look from the seat of a PUBLIC bike.

What you need to do to enter: Tell us in ~200 words or less where you would take us and what we would do on a 90 minute bicycle trip in your hometown.

Details about the contest are available on the PUBLIC website.

The new bikes are 1×7 derailleur-equipped, steel-framed city bikes with alloy fenders and chainguards. They’ll be available in both step-through and diamond frame models at $495.
