Public Citizen Bike by Public Bikes. The sleek, lightweight, $495 Citizen is the newest model from Public Bikes, a company launched by the founder of Design Within Reach to make European-style bikes for folks on this side of the pond. With upright handlebars, fenders to protect work clothes from puddles, and tires wide enough to handle curbs, Citizen was built with an urbanite in mind. The company is based in San Francisco and ships bikes direct and ready to ride. (Available at publicbikes.com)
