The PUBLIC Sprout is our incredibly fun new bike for city kids ready to hit the road on their first big kids bike. Just like our best-selling PUBLIC V1 city bike, the Sprout V1 features a classic diamond frame design in two sizes, to fit a range of kids.
Parents love the simple, stylish, durable design, with no cables to get tangled, and real quality bike parts that are safer and longer lasting that anything you'll find in the toy store. We designed these bikes with our own kids in mind, with dependable construction to last through lots of rough and tumble and hand-me-downs. Naturally we included all the great features of grown-up PUBLIC bikes, like the matching fenders and chainguard, and comfortable brown vinyl seat and grips. The single-speed rust-resistant chain and quality coaster brake are the simplest to learn, don't need much maintenance, and make stopping just as fun as going.
For kids who haven't already learned on a balance bike, we recommend teaching balancing first by leaving the pedals off and the seat low. Then after balance is mastered, add the pedals and raise the seat to start riding with confidence. But we also include optional training wheels with the S/M size, for learning the old-fashioned way. The M/L size can also accommodate training wheels (not included) and comes with a kickstand for easy parking on the playground.
All of our kids' bikes are shipped Ready to Ride. You'll receive a 99% assembled bike delivered to your door with simple instructions and the few tools needed to complete the finishing steps. And our 30 Day Love at First Ride Guarantee means your little one will get the bike they love, no matter what.
PUBLIC has tested and met all CPSIA 2008 and CPSC 1303, 16 and CFR 1512 safety standards for children ages 3 and up, including chemical and mechanical testing.
