I have been looking for an affordable bike for riding around town. So, when I found Priority Bicycles through Make Magazine, I knew I found my bike. Not only is the structure aesthetically pleasing, there’s no need for maintenance!
Priority Bicycles focuses on creating bikes for the recreational rider. The three gear bikes are lightweight, have a comfy seat and use a belt that requires no grease. The bikes also have an advanced foot brake system. There are two frame styles: a diamond and a step-through. I invested in a step-through model :)
When I found out that Priority Bicycles was inviting backers to test out the bikes, I decided to stop by. I came by on Tuesday and was greeted by Lauren. Lauren thanked me for coming and told me about her passion for cycling. She then introduced me to Dave, the owner of Priority Bicycles.
Lauren and Dave showed me their workshop. I got to see their prototypes and tested one of their diamond models. During my ride, I used the bike’s three gear system and its brakes. I was able to shift gears seamlessly and the pedal back brake system worked great. I can’t wait to ride a Priority Bicycle around my neighborhood :)
Priority Bicycles’ Kickstarter campaign is active until August 14 and the workshop is open for visits. Check out Priority Bicycles’ website for more details.
