Where There's a Team, There's a Way

We’re beyond excited to have partnered with Microsoft Teams on their newest ad campaign featuring the Priority showroom and crew! Over the past year, Microsoft Teams has helped us find new ways to continue to make cycling simple for our customers. We opened our NYC showroom to riders around the world through Virtual Visits, amplified our customer service team, and found innovative ways to work together to launch new products in an ever-changing work environment. We’re extremely proud that we’ve been able to keep our customers pedaling through the pandemic via this contactless yet connected digital experience.

An Update From Our Founder, Dave Weiner

It is our mission to deliver high quality, low maintenance bicycles with unmatched features, at a fair price.  We have been focused on continuously improving our bicycles and our service, with each new bicycle bringing more innovative features with ever increasing quality. This focus on continuous improvement and 7-day a week customer service, together with rising material costs, is forcing us to raise our prices on many of our models starting April 5th.

Bike Review: IKEA SLADDA vs. Priority Classic 2.0 by He Likes It

 

With the launch of IKEA's new belt-driven bicycle, Mikey Kreiger of HeLikes.it reached out to compare the assembly, ride, maintenance, and overall experience of both bicycles. 

He let us know he was going to do a side-by-side comparison. Always confident in our construction, features, and price, we were eager to hear his review. 

He looked at assembly time- where the IKEA SLADDA took 2.5 hours to construct compared to our Priority Classic at 2.5.  The automatic gearing on the SLADDA was "problematic" as opposed to the Classic offering "a bit more flexibility on your ride..." From a maintenance standpoint, a conversation with IKEA customer service over a small pedal warping issue prompted a solution of bringing the SLADDA back to the store.  Lastly, delivery costs on the SLADDA range from $99 to $139, significantly more than the $30 flat rate for our bicycles.

We, admittedly, are a bit biased and happy with the result, but it's just because we have put all of our efforts into making high quality, low maintenance, affordable bicycles for our riders.  

In terms of the bottom line: 

FINAL THOUGHTS

Overall I was impressed by both IKEA and Priority but ultimately the assembly and build issues I faced with the SLADDA make this a no-brainer for recommending the Priority Classic 2.0. If you're in the market for a new bicycle, check them out!
