These are actually pretty cute, and an affordable way to ride upright with a chainguard and fenders. Plus not everyone wants the weight of a true Dutch bike. They're made in San Francisco, the closest place to test ride one is in NY, unfortunately. Though you can buy them online.
From their website:
The PUBLIC J7 is our ultra affordable new lightweight, easy-shifting, bike designed for stop-and-go city riding. With its curved, open, step-through frame design, it is often referred to as a Dutch bike. But this classic European geometry is seen on the streets from Denmark to Italy and now more frequently in the US. It especially well suited for those who wear skirts, carry extra weight on the rear rack, or prefer not to swing a leg over a typical frame crossbar. Tastefully understated and seriously overbuilt. Reliable enough to be your everyday, rain or shine, commuter workhorse. Chic enough to turn heads on city streets. Priced to fit student budgets. Color options include our classic Orange and Vanilla.
